Chapter 18. S3 Compatible Object Store in a Container-Native Storage Environment
Support for S3 compatible Object Store in Container-Native Storage is under technology preview. Technology Preview features are not fully supported under Red Hat service-level agreements (SLAs), may not be functionally complete, and are not intended for production use.
Tech Preview features provide early access to upcoming product innovations, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process.
As Red Hat considers making future iterations of Technology Preview features generally available, we will provide commercially reasonable efforts to resolve any reported issues that customers experience when using these features.
Object Store provides a system for data storage that enables users to access the same data, both as an object and as a file, thus simplifying management and controlling storage costs. The S3 API is the de facto standard for HTTP based access to object storage services.
Before setting up S3 compatible object store for Container-Native Storage, ensure the following prerequisites are met:
- OpenShift setup must be up with master and nodes ready. For more information see Section 8.1, “Preparing the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform Cluster”
- The cns-deploy tool is run and Heketi service is ready. For more information see, Section 8.2, “ Deploying Containerized Red Hat Gluster Storage Solutions”
