We’ve recently debuted Scality S3 Server, our new S3 API implementation — the same as we use for our RING storage platform, open sourced and conveniently packaged in a lightweight Docker container.
You can download Scality S3 Server in less than 3 minutes and run it right on your laptop using local storage. That makes it the fastest and easiest way for developers to break new ground with object storage.
To give you an even faster start, we’ll be part of another ground-breaking innovation: the Docker Store, a new marketplace for validated “dockerized” software. We’re proud to announce that Docker has chosen Scality S3 Server as one of its first featured apps!
What makes the Docker Store so compelling is that it will offer developers and enterprises the same simplicity and confidence that consumers enjoy with Apple’s or Android’s app stores—namely, fast and easy downloading of vetted, validated, and user-rated software.
Thanks to Docker’s popularity and large audience base, we expect our presence on the Docker Store to attract a lot of interest and plenty of S3 Server downloads. As production-grade code, it offers something you can’t get anywhere else: a complete develop-to-deploy experience with object storage. You can build and test applications on your laptop or local server, and then deploy them at Big Data scale—on premises or on Amazon Web Services—without changing a single line of code.
Industry commentators are singing the praises of Scality S3 Server, and we think you will too. We know you’re going to do great things with it, and we can’t wait to see them. So go ahead: download Scality S3 Server, get into that juicy S3 API source code… and let your creativity loose!
