New Blog Series: Cloud Object Storage Deep Dive


Userlevel 7

Hi,

Today I’m excited to finally share my blog series that I’ve been working on for some time, a deep dive into the object storage solutions available from the “big three” public cloud hyperscalers (Azure/AWS/GCP).

 

Part one is available now over at the Veeam Blog and I’ll be updating this post as the other sections become available over the coming days! I won’t spoil the reading but part one focuses on a review of these three services, where they are similar or differentiate so you can start to align yourself with a suitable cloud!

UPDATE 25/08/2021: Part two is now available!

UPDATE 04/10/2021: Part three is now available!

Cloud Object Storage Deep Dive - Part One, Comparison

Cloud Object Storage Deep Dive - Part Two, Implementation

Cloud Object Storage Deep Dive - Part Three, Benchmarks

 

Any questions? Did it help? Please feel free to give feedback!

Wooow!

 

Rise and shine. Congrats for this official post @MicoolPaul.

I think that this kind of content deserves a translation for pt-br on Veeam Brazilian site.

 

Verry good Michael and keep it rock!

Great blog post @MicoolPaul ! It's interesting to see the details and differences between each hyperscaler and their products.

Regarding the API calls/costs; in the long term do they make a difference? It's always hard to calculate those costs compared to the storage costs per GB/TB.

Thanks everyone!

 

@regnor they definitely have an impact, I’ll be exploring this more in part two but essentially your block size is going to have an impact on the API call requirements and how they scale relative to the size of your backups.

I’ll also demonstrate some scenarios to help itemise what you should be expecting to be billed for as part of day to day operations.

So, part 3 answered the question I've had after your initial post. It's quite a surprise to me how much difference the block size can make.

Great series @MicoolPaul! Thanks for your work!

Great series @MicoolPaul! Thanks for your work!

Thanks @regnor! I’ll have to go and re-validate everything now we have the option of 8MB blocks too :joy: but at least the trend of the other block sizes helps paint the picture of what that’ll do...
