Abstract

Cloud computing platforms provide easy and transparent access to a company’s storage infrastructure through services. it allows users to store their data at remote disks and access them anytime from any place. On the other hand, with the deployment of Electronic Document Management (EDM) to manage the insertion, sharing, and retrieval of information assigned to a digital document it is necessary that the processes of searching, indexing and storage of digital documents are carried out efficiently. Besides the use of computational tools focused on archiving digital documents, the storage solution must provide reliability and authenticity on the availability of digital documents. With object storage systems being increasingly accepted as replacements for traditional file or block systems and recognized as a preferred way to expose one’s storage infrastructure, it is important to effectively measure the performance of these services. This paper addresses the deployment project of a content-addressable storage infrastructure in a large company and conducts performance, availability and scalability evaluation to measure the gains in r/w access of the proposed solution in different scenarios proposed.
