FILE vs BLOCK vs OBJECT
Data storage is a vital component of business operations today. It could be file storage, object storage or block storage - each one has different pros and cons, depending on the circumstances. Most data storage works by using a combination of recording media and devices to record data. These are the key types to consider.
- Opting for file storage - If you’re looking for a simple and budget friendly solution, file storage is the obvious choice. Data is stored in files and folders, usually on hard drives. These files and folders appear the same to the hard drive as to the user.
- Choosing block storage - This approach avoids files and folders and instead opts for blocks of data. It is the best solution if you’re working with data that you need to get to frequently and may also need to edit. This type of data storage can be more expensive than other methods and tends not to be as scalable.
- Working with object storage - Object storage is exactly what it sounds like - data is stored as objects. Each one of these objects will have a unique identifier as well as metadata. You can save money by working with object storage but it’s not the best choice if you’re likely to need to edit your data.
