Configure and deploy an S3-compatible gateway within the QuantaStor storage management system.
Select Service Engine Settings.

In QuantaStor, the "Add S3 Gateway" feature is used to configure and deploy an S3-compatible gateway within the QuantaStor storage management system.

An S3 gateway acts as an intermediary between applications or clients that use the Amazon S3 API (Simple Storage Service) and the underlying storage infrastructure managed by QuantaStor. It enables QuantaStor to provide S3-compatible object storage services, allowing applications to interact with the storage system using the widely adopted S3 API.

The purpose of the "Add S3 Gateway" function is to simplify the integration of QuantaStor with applications or services that rely on the S3 API for object storage. By adding an S3 gateway, QuantaStor can emulate the behavior and functionality of Amazon S3, making it compatible with S3-based applications and tools.

Select the storage cluster nodes to deploy new S3 Gateway service instances onto. Users will be able to access their object storage buckets via these nodes. It is recommended to deploy S3 Gateways on all nodes for best performance.

When adding an S3 gateway in QuantaStor, you typically configure settings such as:

  • Endpoint Configuration: Specify the hostname or IP address and port for the S3 gateway endpoint.
  • Authentication and Access Control: Set up authentication mechanisms, access keys, and policies to control access to the S3 gateway.
  • Bucket Configuration: Create and manage S3 buckets, which serve as logical containers for storing objects.
  • Object Storage Features: Configure features such as versioning, lifecycle management, server-side encryption, and access logging for the S3 gateway.

Once the S3 gateway is added and configured, applications that use the S3 API can interact with the QuantaStor storage system as if it were an S3-compatible object storage service.

Adding an S3 gateway in QuantaStor allows you to leverage the benefits of the S3 ecosystem and integrate with a wide range of applications, tools, and services that support the S3 API. It provides flexibility and compatibility for S3-based workflows while using QuantaStor as the underlying storage infrastructure.

It's important to note that the specific features and configuration options available for the S3 gateway in QuantaStor may vary depending on the version of QuantaStor and the supported S3 API versions.
