Abstract: 

Machine Learning, Video Processing, Analytics, and IoT all run on data, and typically, they require massive amounts of data. This data is needed by data scientists, line of business, developers and others. Object storage, which is the default storage for the PBs and EBs of unstructured data in clouds, has brought huge efficiencies to these application-centric use cases. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of object storage, using IBM's Cloud Object Storage (formerly Cleversafe) as an example. In particular, we will describe the differences between object storage and more traditional big data storage solutions from the perspective of the developer. We will then discuss how developers can take advantage of object storage with modern applications via integration with software such as Apache Spark and Kafka.
