A few years ago, moving anything infrastructure related to "the" cloud was assumed to make life easier for everyone from the systems administrator to the application developper. A number of complexities and hidden costs came to light recently, and one of the main causes for this is that there is no single "the" cloud. There are multiple clouds.
Scality has been a Gartner Leader for software defined storage for the past few year, and saw that problem coming 2 years ago. Its core product, the RING, provides a software solution to storing petabytes of data on private clouds across multiple sites.
Recently, Scality developped an open source solution that provides an aggregated view of all data stored across clouds, and lets the user use one single API (the S3 API) to access multiple cloud data backends (S3, Azure, Google Cloud, Backblaze, among others). It allows for Cross Clouds Replication, metadata search across clouds, and comes with a handy management UI: Zenko Orbit.
This presentation will cover the current situation and challenges described above, then describe Zenko Open Source, and conclude with a demo (bring your laptop!) and Q&A.
