15:29 pdurbin I'm confused. This guy is talking about S3 providers other than Amazon. I thought only Amazon provided S3: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/dataverse-community/zZDA5fLpA5w/t42UZTr9AQAJ
15:29 pdurbin Do other companies besides Amazon provide S3?
15:32 bene s3 is an amazon provided product
15:32 bene but there are other software projects that provide an s3-compatible api/endpoints
15:32 bene openstack has one iirc, and there are some open source on-prem/in-house variants written in various languages
15:33 bene https://www.minio.io/ e.g.
15:34 bene https://github.com/leo-project/leofs
15:34 pdurbin "Minio is an open source object storage server with Amazon S3 compatible API."
15:34 pdurbin "LeoFS is an Amazon S3 compatible storage system."
15:34 pdurbin bene: thanks. This is very helpful. In our app (Dataverse), we do already support the OpenStack S3 variant, which is called Swift.
15:35 dotplus most cloud providers have S3-compatible services. Definitely ORCL, GOOG and I think MSFT too.
15:35 pdurbin Our support for Swift is documented so I assume this guy is interested in a non-Swift, non-Amazon option like Minio or LeoFS.
15:37 pdurbin dotplus: thanks. For MSFT, a Microsoft developer is working on a driver for what they call Azure blob storage: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/issues/4247
15:37 pdurbin I'm not aware of Oracle or Google S3 offerings.
15:39 dotplus I think minio/leofs/etc. are software projects that _implement_ S3 apis. Each provider gets to choose how to implement:)
15:39 dotplus https://cloud.oracle.com/infrastructure/storage/object-storage/faq
15:40 pdurbin "Oracle Object Storage will continue to support both the native Object Storage API and the Amazon S3 Compatibility API." Interesting. Thanks.
15:41 bene S3 vs O2S... fight!
15:42 pdurbin O2S?
15:42 * dotplus recuses himself with a disclaimer about being a Oracle+Dyn employee
15:42 dotplus "Oracle Object Storage"
15:43 pdurbin oh, thanks
15:43 bene i'm making bad jokes
15:43 bene because it's a half day before a holiday
15:44 bene and i'm reading the intel management engine vulnerability info trying to figure out how many machines i have to update the bios on
15:44 bene and i really don't want to do be doing this :-/
15:46 pdurbin I was just listening to https://blog.openshift.com/podcast-podctl-16-day-to-day-operations/ yesterday and they were talking about how some people want to run Kubernetes on bare metal but then they remember that their skills in managing bare metal are rusty.
15:47 dotplus ha! this _is_ me
15:48 dotplus but fortunately it's ok, because someone is really responsible for the metal, whew.
15:49 pdurbin don't let your bare metal get rusty
16:05 * dotplus groans
17:47 jri joined #crimsonfu
17:47 pdurbin Oh good, someone replied to him, asking if he has a specific S3 provider in mind.
