Object storage is the third major way of organizing data on disk. Objects are addressed by an object ID or a key value and instead of addressing the data by byte, and organizing it into
named files, or by block and asking for it by block number. We ask for an object by an object ID which can be a key. The data is then returned and it can be any length from anything from zero bytes all the way up to very large quantities.
