StoneFly S3 Object Storage Solutions: Overview

StoneFly Local S3 Object Storage Appliances 2

StoneFly offers three S3 object storage options:

  • Cloud: Serverless S3 object storage in AWS cloud or any other S3 compatible cloud. 
  • Virtual: Deploy SCVM as a VM on VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Citrix (formerly XenServer) hypervisors and provision S3 object storage volumes using the available storage stack. 
  • Physical: Purpose-built local S3 object storage appliances. 

Our S3 object storage solutions (cloud, virtual or physical) can be configured as storage targets for backup software such as Rubrik, Commvault, Veritas, Veeam, and more. 

StoneFly S3 solutions can be seamlessly integrated with S3 compatible applications, servers, and software. 

S3 Object Storage in the Cloud

StoneFly Local S3 Object Storage Appliances 3

Integrate cloud S3 object storage repositories with your on-premises infrastructure using StoneFly cloud storage gateway.

Our cloud storage gateway can let you configure S3 storage in AWS or any other S3 compatible cloud. These cloud-based S3 repositories can be set up as target storage locations for your:

  •  Backup software like Rubrik, Veeam, Commvault, Acronis, etc. 
  • On-Premises Infrastructure: NAS, SAN, unified systems, and Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)
  • Virtual Machines (VMs) running on VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, Citrix (XenServer)
  • Relational Databases such as MySQL, Hadoop, Docker, PostGreSQL, etc. 
  • And More! 

StoneFly cloud storage gateways are available as virtual gateway and hardware gateway appliances. 

The virtual gateway appliance can be deployed as a VM on VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Citrix (formerly XenServer) hypervisors.

What is Local S3 Object Storage?

StoneFly Local S3 Object Storage Appliances 4

Local S3 object storage repositories deliver cloud-like performance and scalability; enabling you to leverage affordable on-premises storage without having to worry about network, bandwidth and file size limitations, data and server security, compliance, and egress costs. 

With our technology, you can set up local S3 object storage in two ways: 

  • Deploy StoneFly SCVM as a VM on your VMware, Hyper-V, KVM or Citrix (XenServer) hypervisor and provision S3 object storage volumes repurposing unused storage resources.
  • Set up enterprise or value-tier purpose-built S3 object storage appliances. 

StoneFly SCVM and S3 object storage appliances support cloud connect to AWS and other S3 compatible clouds for data archiving and long term data storage.
