Abstract: 

There are growing interest on object storage as a backup and version storage for their massive data on primary storage due to its intuitive interfaces and relatively low cost of ownership. However, object storage in its early stage now does not consider capacity optimization very well (especially on its open source implementation like Openstack Swift and Ceph). This presentation introduces data reduction techniques from the viewpoint of object storage; we will cover deduplication, compression, and more interesting techniques for capacity optimization on object storage.
