Subject RE: [DISCUSS]S3-based secondary storage
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2013 21:56:21 GMT
Hi Chip,

As I understand, 509 "backs" the NFS secondary storage using a S3 compatible Object Store.
I'm proposing that CS uses any S3 ased Object Store as the "main" secondary storage (I want
to avoid using the word primary in this context..) - in that sense, it is similar to the Swift
use case (which uses NFS as a temporary staging) - I don't know if that (NFS as a temporary
staging is strictly required also? Plus, I want to have a single object store for the entire
region, across multiple zones (it doesn't appear 509 can do that)

Simply put, 509 is about "backing NFS secondary storage with an S3-compatible object store"
- my proposal is about having an S3 compatible object store as THE secondary storage

Isn't this a duplicate of CLOUDSTACK-509?  Can we close CLOUDSTACK-714?
