Sometimes we need to provide READ ONLY access to S3 bucket for all not authenticated users. That post describes how to configure such public access.
ECS is usually used with a Load Balancer. Because a load balancer is placed in-band and controls all incoming and outgoing traffic, it can be used to collect performance data and transfer it to external log analyzer for further visualization and alert.
In that post, I’ll share my experience with ECS performance monitoring and reporting based on Brocade vTM load balancer and Graylog log analyzer.
Multipart upload allows uploading large objects in parts. This post reveals how that feature works. Primitive s3curl is used to test S3 APIs.
Sometimes we need very granular level of control on what ECS REST APIs are allowed to be requested. We can do that using rules on Brocade vTM Load Balancers.
I’d like to test if I can use the most popular S3 testing tools S3 browser and Cyberduck to manage versioning feature.
In that post I play with S3 versioning using s3curl. Major thing to do are: enable versioning, create several versions of an object, delete and restore the latest version, restore one of the non-latest version, enable and check version expiration policy, suspend versioning and clean a bucket.
One of the best methods to measure ECS data access latency is to use logging feature on a Load Balancer. We discuss some details of the method in that post. Brocade vTM Load Balanced is used.
In that post, we discuss how to configure Brocade vTM Load Balancer providing access to ECS management APIs.
ECS supports namespace and bucket metering in both UI and CLI. Lets discuss how to use that necessary feature.
How much space do we have until reaching a bucket’s hard quota? Lets consider 2 simple ways to check that.
In that short post we will check how to get access to an S3 bucket from using access key and secret of the object user which belongs to another namespace.
Object user names can be either unique all federated VDCs or just in the specific namespace. That short post explains how to configure ECS user scope.
Sometimes we need to delete all data in a S3 bucket or Swift container. Below are the examples of scripts to do that.
Below the code of the primitive shell scripts to test S3 and Swift.
In that post I discuss how to configure and use domain users allowing them to generate object storage access credentials by themselves.
The paper reviews the basic ways to configure the most popular Load Balancing products F5 BigIP, Nginx, HAproxy, Citrix Netscaler, Kemp VLM and Brocade vTM.
ECS-sync is an external tool developed by the Object EMC Development team. It supports Centera, Atmos, S3, file to CAS, Atmos, S3, file migration. In this post I’m focused on S3 to S3 migration.
In this post several typical cases how to use API with curl and Advanced REST API Client are presented.
My personal experience with Centera to ECS Transformation and Migration. Be prepared for a lot of curl and API calls 😉
CLI is used here. Native migration in GUI is supported from ECS 3.0.
That is the tiny Python script to test ECS S3 access. Continue reading
In that post we will check how to configure and use NFS with multi-protocol access.
Let’s test very basic CAS features on top of ECS.
Let’s answer one of the common questions. Why we see folders’ structure in Cyberduck and S3 browser? In theory, we shouldn’t…
One of our customers asked to compare Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift protocols provided by ECS.
My compilation from different sources below. Don’t expect really comprehensive analysis. So, criticism is not accepted 😉
Basic tests of very powerful tool ECS-sync.
In that post I’d like to show how to authorise with Swift v2. Simple curl commends are used.
I created this document to keep track of my experimental installation of ECS Community Edition 126.96.36.199 (March 2016). It is based on the official installation instructions from github.com but contains more details and comments for specific commands’ output and description of mistakes I made and errors I got.
I have couple of projects with ECS and F5 Load Balancers. But unfortunately I never worked wit F5 yet. So today I’d like to play a little bit with the virtual F5 Load Balancer. Continue reading
Lets discuss how CloudBoost with ECS in the backend can be integrated with a Networker.
In that post I’ll continue discussing how to integrate backup solution based on CloudBoost with ECS.
In that post I’ll discuss how to integrate backup solution based on CloudBoost with ECS.
In that post we will discuss how to configure Atmos Cloud Provider in CloudArray.
In that post we will discuss how to get access to another ECS protocol S3 with CLI curl tool.
In that post we will discuss how to get access to ECS Swift with CLI curl tool.
Brief description of steps to configure ECS with CloudArray under Nginx Load Balancer.
.pdf doc attached.
The main goal of the doc is a brief description of ECS appliance which minimizes the number of questions from a customer side during implementation preparation.
Today I decided to play with COSBench. Will test S3 access to ECS.
