What is file storage?

File storage is a data storage format in which data is stored and managed as files within folders.

If you’ve ever accessed files on a hard drive, your local computer, or a shared drive hosted on your company’s server, you’ve dealt with file storage. File storage systems provide readability and convenience for users.

People also ask:

1. What is object storage?

Object Storage is a storage format in which data is stored in discrete units called objects. Each unit has a unique identifier or key, which allows them to be found no matter where they’re stored on a distributed system.

2. What is unified fast file and object (UFFO) storage?

Unified fast file and object (UFFO) is a new category of storage architectured to address the demands of modern applications. UFFO is a storage platform that consolidates native fast file and fast object storage with an architecture that delivers simplicity, scale, and performance.
