SwiftStack (www.swiftstack.com), leader in open source object storage, just unveiled SwiftStack Object Storage 3.0 the first day of the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo. Among the main features, this release offers a Amazon S3 API and a pay-as-you-grow pricing model. SwiftStack signed last year 50 new customers that's represent a very fast growth. For access methods, SwiftStack allows object and file mode respectively with REST, Swift and S3 APIs and SMB and NFS via the Maldivica based-gateway. The SwiftStack Controller has been enhanced with Active Secondary Controller, support of Active Discovery and the hardware profiles for resellers to simplify and accelerate deployment. The last element is the data protection with the choice between Erasure Coding and Replication based models. SwiftStack continues to enhance the product with regular updates, good to see a real customer adoption for Open Source Object Storage with a strong momentum. Congrats Mario and the team.
