Navigating the Complexities of Object Storage Compatibility

Presented by

Gregory Touretsky, Co-Chair SNIA Cloud Storage TWG; Arnold Jones, SNIA Technical Director; Michael Hoard, Chair, SNIA CSTI

About this talk

Object Storage has firmly established itself as a cornerstone of modern data centers and cloud infrastructure. Ensuring API compatibility has become crucial for object storage developers who want to benefit from the wide ecosystem of existing applications. However, achieving compatibility can be challenging due to the complexity and variety of the APIs, access control mechanisms, and performance and scalability requirements. In this webinar, we'll highlight real-world incompatibilities found in various object storage implementations. We'll discuss specific examples of existing discrepancies, such as missing or incorrect response headers, unsupported API calls, and unexpected behavior. We’ll also describe the implications these have on actual client applications. This analysis is based on years of experience with implementation, deployment and evaluation of a wide range of object storage systems on the market. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of the challenges around compatibility and how to address them in their own applications. During this webinar, we'll call for participation in a Cloud Object Storage Plugfest, facilitated by SNIA and co-located at Storage Developer Conference (SDC) 2024, aimed at improving cross-implementation compatibility for client and/or server implementations of private and public cloud object storage solutions. This endeavor is designed to be an independent, vendor-neutral effort with broad industry support, focused on a variety of solutions, including on-premises and in the cloud.
