Vault v2 offers advanced S3 API support and a compatibility tier that gives developers continued use of Amazon’s S3 Software Development Kit (SDK). By supporting native S3 API calls, developers can significantly ease their workloads by not changing SDK’s or API’s.
When deploying an open-hybrid cloud and/or moving data between providers, it is important to understand how compatible a storage platform is. S3 is quickly becoming the industry standard for object storage and this is not expected to change in the foreseeable future. Choosing the right storage platform can save your organisation money, and shave months off the time to deploy. Adherence to and compatibility with these standards is critical.
To make S3 simple for applications to access, Amazon is continually refining the operations available to applications through the S3 API. There is a total of 51 operations consisting of S3 Service, S3 Buckets, and S3 Objects. Compatibility is based on a storage platform’s ability to perform some, or all of the S3 API features.
