What is S3 compatible storage?

Data is expanding more quickly than ever, and most of it is unstructured, including video, email, files, data backups, surveillance feeds, genomics, and other types of data. Systems for object storage are created for this kind of petabyte-scale data.

Compatible Storage with S3 and Amazon Web Services

Regarding public cloud computing, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has emerged as the industry leader. The largest and most well-known public cloud storage service is now AWS S3 or Simple Storage Service. As a result, it has become the standard object storage API for storing unstructured data in the cloud, accepted by developers of both bespoke and ISV apps.

Over time, the Amazon S3 interface has developed into a reliable data management interface. It offers application developers a mechanism to control data using an extensive API set, in contrast to conventional file system interfaces.

A storage system known as S3 Compatible Storage enables administration and access to the data it houses via an S3-compatible interface.

What advantages does S3-compatible storage offer?

Data Security

  • assurance that you will use a reliable, well-proven object storage access interface
  • Little to no chance of interoperability problems

Did you realize it?

With several for-profits and open-source solutions, Scality is leading the S3 Compatible Storage trend:

Connecting Scality for Azure Blob Storage

The Azure Blob Storage API calls are converted from the Amazon S3 API. Customers may use their tried-and-true Amazon S3 apps with Azure Blob Storage right away with Scality Connect without changing the applications themselves.

Multi-cloud data controller Zenko

provides a fluid and consistent experience across many clouds. Zenko gives developers a single, unified API and access layer for any data, regardless of where it is kept: on-premises or in the public cloud, including AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage (coming soon), and many more.

Cloud server Zenko

(formerly Scality S3 Server): an open-source object storage server compatible with Amazon S3 and enables cloud developers to design and deliver S3-compliant apps more quickly by testing and integrating on-site or against any other S3-compatible cloud. A complete collection of AWS S3 language-specific bindings and wrappers is available, as well as Software Development Kits (SDKs).

RING of Scality

offers a native and thorough S3 interface for an object storage solution. The first AWS S3-compatible object storage for business S3 applications with secure multi-tenancy and excellent performance is Scality S3 Connector.
