CloudVPS Object Store beta tester contributes Java library

Our customer 42 was one of the first customers that joined the CloudVPS Object Store beta test. An object store is a distributed cloud storage platform that allows objects (files) to be stored and retrieved using simple API-commands. It is an ideal way to store images and other media files in the cloud. The most well-known example of an object store is Amazon S3. Our solution will be significantly cheaper and will address the privacy concerns related to storing valuable data with a US company.

We intend to launch a production version of our object store soon and besides helping us to test, 42 have also been working to make their own lives easier. They did this by creating a Java library that allows applications to communicate with our object store. Their Java library connects specifically with the OpenStack API, as our object store is based on the OpenStack Swift project.

CloudVPS Object Store Beta test - More testers welcome

Besides further improving the current storage infrastructure by adding SSD caching we are busy developing an object store. An object store is a distributed storage platform that allows objects (files) to be stored and retrieved using simple API-calls. This solution is ideal for larger pieces of information like images and other media files or backups. Object stores have been gaining popularity rapidly, especially with large companies and developers of web-applications with large amounts of static data.

At the moment the most well known example of an object store is Amazon S3. Our solution will be significantly more affordable than the solutions currently being offered. We will ask sensible compensation for storage and outgoing traffic and do not plan to charge for API calls. You will be able to order this product independently of our virtual server products.
A major benefit of our solution will be a Dutch location for your data. We are also not subject to the Patriot Act. This is the law that forces US companies to hand over your data to US government agencies no matter were it is located.
