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.
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
