By Prashant Mishra, Alibaba Cloud MVP and CEO, Founder Click2Cloud Inc.

With traditional storage systems such as on an on-premises network attached storage (NAS) are useful for storing many static files, videos, and images. However, these systems face many problems like hardware failure, scalability issues, high costs, and limited disk space. These problems can be easily overcome with cloud storage solutions such as Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service, which is a storage platform that manages and manipulates data storage as distinct units called objects. Object storage allows users to store large amount of unstructured data in a highly scalable manner. So, whether a user have a server or application or backup requirements, user can easily store the data in an object store using Rest APIs with the help of OSS.
