What is S3 compatible storage?

Data is growing faster than ever before and most of that data is unstructured

Object Storage Protocols

Getting Object Storage Ready for the Enterprise

video, email, files, data backups, surveillance streams, genomics and more. Object Storage systems are designed for this type of data at petabyte scale.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has emerged as the dominant service in public cloud computing. The AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service) has grown to become the largest and most popular public cloud storage service. As a result, it has been embraced by developers of custom and ISV applications as the de-facto standard object storage API for storing unstructured data in the cloud.

The Amazon S3 interface has evolved over the years to become a very robust data management interface. Unlike traditional file system interfaces, it provides application developers a means to control data through a rich API set.

S3 Compatible Storage is a storage solution that allows access to and management of the data it stores over an S3 compliant interface.

The Benefits

What are the Pros of S3 Compatible Storage?

  • Largest choice of compatible ISV applications
  • Assurance of leveraging a robust and widely tested object storage access interface
  • Little to no risk of interoperability issues

Did you know?

Scality is at the forefront of the S3 Compatible Storage trend with multiple commercial products and open-source projects

Scality RING

offers an object storage solution with a native and comprehensive S3 interface. Scality S3 Connector is the first AWS S3-compatible object storage for enterprise S3 applications with secure multi-tenancy and high performance.

Azure Blob

Translates Amazon S3 API calls to Azure Blob Storage API calls. Scality Connect enables customers to immediately consume Azure Blob Storage with their proven Amazon S3 applications without any application modifications.

Zenko CloudServer

An open-source Amazon S3-compatible object storage server that allows cloud developers build and deliver their S3 compliant apps faster by doing testing and integration locally or against any remote S3 compatible cloud. A full set of AWS S3 language-specific bindings and wrappers, including Software Development Kits (SDKs) are provided.

Software-defined

What is a node in Storage

Most object storage solutions are architected to run on inexpensive commodity x86 hardware. Each server constitutes a node, which provides both compute and storage resources. This allows for the linear scaling of both capacity and performance by simply adding additional nodes. Although object storage service is often sold as a storage appliance (hardware with installed software), pure object storage is ‘software-only’ and is typically hardware-agnostic.
