SwiftStack Enhances S3 API Support for Private Cloud Storage

When it comes to making the move to object storage these days, IT organizations are in a bit of a quandary. In theory at least, most of them would prefer to make use of industry standards such as OpenStack to access object storage systems in a private cloud. In reality, large numbers of them are already making use of object storage via the S3 cloud service provided by Amazon Web Services.

At the OpenStack Summit Tokyo conference today, SwiftStack moved to address that issue by enhancing the support for S3 application programming interfaces (APIs) emulation it now provides in version 3.0 of its namesake object storage software.
