9.10. Scaling Multicloud Object Gateway performance by adding endpoints

The Multicloud Object Gateway performance may vary from one environment to another. In some cases, specific applications require faster performance which can be easily addressed by scaling S3 endpoints.

The Multicloud Object Gateway resource pool is a group of NooBaa daemon containers that provide two types of services enabled by default:

  • Storage service
  • S3 endpoint service

9.10.1. S3 endpoints in the Multicloud Object Gateway

The S3 endpoint is a service that every Multicloud Object Gateway provides by default that handles the heavy lifting data digestion in the Multicloud Object Gateway. The endpoint service handles the inline data chunking, deduplication, compression, and encryption, and it accepts data placement instructions from the Multicloud Object Gateway.
