Object storage, or object-based storage, is a strategy for storing data as objects.

Major public cloud services, like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, provide facilities for object storage.

Object storage is relatively fast compared to block or file storage.

Users can use object storage in the cloud and on-prem datalakes.

The major object storage providers are S3, minio, and ozone.

A user can interact with object storage using python, java, and other programming languages.
