- 3. IBM Cloud Scale-out Object Storage Cluster

From OSNEXUS Online Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search

QuantaStor’s scale-out object configurations provide S3 and SWIFT compatible REST API support. Configurations scale-out by adding additional drives and systems. Each system contains SSD to accelerate write performance and each cluster must contain a minimum of 3x systems and a maximum of 32s systems (10PB maximum). QuantaStor’s storage grid technology enables systems to be grouped together and managed as a storage grid that can span IBM datacenters. Within a storage grid one or more object storage clusters may be provisioned and managed from QuantaStor’s web based management interface as well as via QS REST APIs and the QS CLI.
