FILE vs BLOCK vs OBJECT
Data storage refers to the use of recording media to retain data using computers or other devices. The most prevalent forms of data storage are file storage, block storage, and object storage, with each being ideal for different purposes.
- File Storage - Inexpensive and simply constructed, data is stored in files and folders. This is commonly found on hard drives and means that the files look exactly the same to the hard drive as they do to the user.
- Block Storage - Data is stored in evenly-sized blocks. Although more expensive and complex and less scalable, block storage is ideal for data that must be frequently accessed and edited.
- Object Storage - Data is stored as objects with metadata and unique identifiers. Although it is generally less expensive to store data this way, object storage is only ideal for data that doesn’t need to be edited.
