Amazon S3 & S3 Compatibles

s3logoIn a recent Amazon S3 blog, it is reported that Amazon S3 has reached 905 billion objects. As usual, we will plot the new number together with its historical numbers and see the trend line.

Worked out the math, it takes Amazon S3 247 days to double. So it doubles every 8 months.

We have been following it for a while and it is almost like a broken record now. Congratulations to the growth of S3 and the validation of cloud storage market.


This article will now discuss more about its Compatibles.

As a recent development, Amazon and Eucalyptus teamed up to allow Eucalyptus to use its “API” and Eucalyptus has been compatible with AWS for quite a long time.

There are many other S3 compatibles implementations out there in the market. To name a few, Google Cloud Storage started with S3 compatible before moving into version 2 of the API; Scality and Mezeo provide S3 compatible APIs for their storage system. If you search for “S3 compatible” on the Internet, you may be finding a lot more.
