Frequently Asked Questions

What is S3-compatible storage?

S3-compatible storage allows you to transfer and access your data via an S3 compliant interface. To do this, such storage platforms use S3-compatible APIs.

What are the benefits of S3-compatible storage?

The use of different cloud storage solutions can provide better flexibility in terms of costs, performance and scalability. You can store your data at a competitive price and with lower to no ingress and egress fees. You can also deploy your own private cloud or build a hybrid cloud environment by using an S3-compatible object storage on-premise.

What is the main difference between public and private cloud storage?

The main difference between public and private clouds is the control you can have over your data. A public cloud is a subscription storage service managed by a third-party vendor. A private cloud is usually hosted in the organization’s data center and maintained on a private network. A private cloud gives you full control over your data and delivers more flexibility to customize the environment.
