    Smarter storage from metadata, object stores

    One of the distinguishing features of object storage systems is their ability to package more metadata with each object they store.

    Today, organizations face a wide array of storage challenges. Luckily, there are myriad training and certification opportunities for IT pros looking to bolster their knowledge of the storage technologies.
