Native S3

S3 and File System in the same namespace – a file is an object is a file!

Quobyte offers native S3 support for scale-out object storage. By creating a unified object ⇆ file namespace, we’ve broken down data silos, eliminated the headache of maintaining multiple versions of the same object, and simplified object storage infrastructure. Harness this protocol’s power either on-prem or in the cloud.

Key Features
  • Quobyte unifies S3 objects with the rest of your storage infrastructure by keeping them in the same namespace as regular files. By treating objects as files, you can share data and eliminate the need for copies to cut costs, easily keep assets in sync, and streamline compliance for regulations like HIPAA.
  • S3’s access controls map onto Quobyte’s NFSv4 ACLs and are enforced via S3 and all the other protocols that we support. This means you only have to manage one access control list, making Quobyte a valuable asset for your security posture.
  • With no limit on the number of stateless S3 web servers, Quobyte delivers scalable performance for S3 access.
  • Quobyte’s native S3 is compatible with AWS S3 but doesn’t rely on Amazon’s infrastructure as a backend.
  • Native S3 is ideal for many workflows, such as machine learning pipelines. Instead of needing both S3 for object storage and another storage tier for preprocessing, Quobyte reduces this burden down to a single file system.
  • A key to Quobyte’s unconditional simplicity is making administrators’ lives a little bit easier. That’s why we embedded native S3 capabilities into a grand unified storage system. This unique setup gives you full control over versioning, compliance, policy-based tiering, and more.
  • Quobyte enables policies for storing object data with erasure coding on high-density HDD servers for complete cost optimization.

By incorporating native S3, Quobyte synthesizes the scalability and low cost of object storage with the flexibility and manageability of a file system. Quobyte lets you store objects anywhere and share them seamlessly across any number of users on any number of platforms.
