I keep coming across this text when an author tries to describe how SaaS platforms store data:
Content and file storage: With this type of data storage, the customer uploads data through the web application, but instead of being stored in an integral database, the content and files are stored in other storage mechanisms that users can access. Ref: https://www.dummies.com/test-prep/cloud-data-storage-architectures CCSP for Dummies
However, I am frustrated by the phrase
are stored in other storage mechanisms
What does this mean? Does it mean that content and file storage uses volume or object storage, or something else?
In context, the suggestion is that content and file storage will be unstructured data.
Surely this means it can only be object storage?? Or can volume storage store unstructured data too?
Without understanding the basic storage, I cant begin to understand how the data will be secured and what types of questions a certified cloud professional should ask or be aware of.
