Zenko’s multi-cloud capabilities keep expanding with the addition of Digital Ocean Spaces as a new endpoint within the Orbit management panel. Digital Ocean is a cloud hosting company that has experienced explosive growth since 2013 with a very simple to use product. Spaces is the latest addition to the popular Digital Ocean cloud offering: a simple object storage compatible with Amazon S3 API.
The video below demonstrates how to set up data replication between an Amazon S3 bucket and a Digital Ocean Space. One might want to setup such replication to keep multiple copies of a backup file for example, or to increase resilience of an application in those rare cases when a cloud is not available. Another typical use case is to optimize costs, using the best features of many clouds while keeping costs under control.
The newly released version of Zenko Orbit lets you seamlessly replicate objects between Amazon S3, Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, Azure, Wasabi, Scality RING and local storage. You can test the replication capabilities easily by creating an account on Orbit and then connecting it to your accounts on Amazon AWS and Digital Ocean Space. Watch the video for more details. If you have questions don’t hesitate to ask on Zenko forums.
