Dell EMC ObjectScale 1.2.x Administration Guide

About Dell EMC ObjectScale

ObjectScale uses a software-defined, containerized architecture to deliver enterprise-class, high-performance object storage in a Kubernetes-native package. ObjectScale empowers organizations to move faster and respond more effectively to rapidly changing business needs. This next generation of object storage software is lighter, faster, and deployable on existing infrastructure. You can deploy ObjectScale on your Kubernetes (Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform) or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) infrastructure. ObjectScale supports the storage, manipulation, and analysis of unstructured data on a massive scale.

With rich S3 compatibility and self-service APIs, you can quickly spin up object storage containers. These containers can service many types of applications, from big data and analytics to ephemeral development or test sandboxes.

ObjectScale allows any organization to deliver scalable cloud services with the reliability and control of a private cloud infrastructure. ObjectScale enables convenient management for a globally distributed storage infrastructure.

ObjectScale is built with certain design principles, such as:

  • Global namespace with eventual consistency
  • Scale-out capabilities
  • Secure multitenancy
  • Superior performance for small, large, and huge objects

The platform was built as a distributed system following the microservices principle of cloud applications. ObjectScale has a layered architecture, with every function in the system built as an independent layer, making them horizontally scalable across all nodes and enabling high availability. The S3-compatible ObjectScale software forms the underlying cloud storage service, providing protection, geo-replication, and data access.
