Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.

Many seasoned attorneys will agree that remediating an enormous amount of documentation to ensure regulatory compliance is no easy feat. The volume of repapering necessary for compliance with the new rules governing margin requirements for non-centrally cleared derivatives (UMR) presented new challenges, exposed structural weaknesses, and provided many lessons learned which can be applied to any documentation remediation effort. Many UMR initiatives suffered significant hurdles that contributed to delays and missed deadlines. Common among the various challenges faced were the dearth of talent in the quantities needed, and the limited technology and data management solutions utilized.
