Subject RE: Cloudstack S3 (Simple Storage Service) Support
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 11:27:34 GMT
Hi all,

I can see that cloudstack has S3 support , and we can enable the S3 flag in Cloudstack.
However, I want to know if I can let user create storage buckets and give users a key with
which they can put data into these storage buckets.
I think, I can have my own huge single NFS storage server, and as the user come I can assign
buckets on the server.

Let me know if this is possible from cloudstack, if yes then which API documentation can help
me find a solution.

Thanks and Regards.

Asmita

The storage.root parameter in cloud-bridge.properties can point to any
filesystem: with this you will get a filesystem-backed S3 service.
However the reliability, durability and scalability are guaranteed by the choice of filesystem.
For example if the filesystem is an NFS mount provided by a NetApp server, the reliability
properties of the NetApp server would apply.
