Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading big data application provider for empowering data-driven enterprises, announced API support for Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), a web service available from Amazon Web Services and also for private cloud deployments. The new S3 storage solutions are supported on Solix Big Data Suite 2.3, as part of a new software update.

Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a scalable, cloud-based object storage system that simplifies enterprise data management, by storing data and its associated metadata as objects in user-defined containers (buckets). Buckets can be configured to meet a variety of purposes, including enterprise archiving, data lake, application retirement, and security and compliance requirements.

S3 provides low cost bulk data storage on commodity hardware and is an ideal infrastructure choice for enterprise archiving, data lake and unstructured data applications. The highly reliable file system features 99.999999999% uptime and near linear scalability in very large environments. Apache Hadoop file systems may be hosted on S3 enabling access to Apache Spark and MapReduce.

Customers can take advantage of both block and object data store capabilities through a simple unified interface to meet performance, cost and data tiering objectives,” said Kishore Gadiraju, VP of Products at Solix.

Gartner stated in its 20 October 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage” report, “By 2021, more than 80% of enterprise data will be stored in scale-out storage systems in enterprise and cloud data centers, up from 30% today.”
