We found that the CloudBoost compatibility matrix only support ECS as the private cloud storage using S3 API. We want to use Huawei private cloud storage. So Is there any way to do certification with CloudBoost?

Hello HePeng,

If you'd like to submit a specific cloud store, we should handle this through your Account Manager. They'll help organize the number of requests for a particular cloud store and will get this to our Engineering team.

Thanks,

Hello HePeng,

Yes, the question was a little old, but I'm sure could be a frequent ask.

As for a document or location to make the submission, I do not have either. What we will need to have done is the following:

  • Name of the cloud store provider
  • S3 or Openstack Swift APIs
  • Header version
  • Private or public cloud store
  • Custom URL or generic

Provide this to your Account Manager who will reach out directly to the Product Manager. If you don't have an Account Manager, feel free to post these to me and I'll direct them to the appropriate teams.

Note: There is no guarantee Product Management or Engineering will add the cloud store, as there are many factors leading up to the request, such as number of requests for the same cloud store, API use/versions, etc.

If you want to be more proactive towards your request, feel free to perform a Blobstore Validation (BSV) test against the potential cloud store. This is a hidden tool inside of the CloudBoost CLI and syntax is:


diagnostics blobstore-cli "--provider <ENTER PROVIDER> --endpoint <URL ENDPOINT> --identity <ENTER ACCESS KEY> --credentials <ENTER SECRET KEY>" validate

And the BSV results are below:

the results are good. So can you kindly help us add "Huawei Object Storage" to the support list of CB? Thanks so much, Dillon.
