That was a fast reply!
@Tony : so, I’m in the process of validating various tools (both on the service side, as well as on the client side). On the service side, AWS-S3 has definitely been top of mind, but there is the possibility that we’ll want to use an on-premise S3-like provider (like Cloudian, for example).
In my poking around, I’ve found that most of the other client-side applications (such as cyberduck) don’t expose a ton of options which would be provider specific (besides port #, ability to toggle encryption on/off, and ability to disable multi-part). That said, its not always just plug-and-play, of course: if O-Drive were to provide ability to simply specify server:host (and perhaps have a couple mentioned toggles), and label the plugin as ‘S3-like’, it would give folks like myself the ability to try it out. If something specific didn’t work, it wouldn’t necessarily be O-Drive’s responsibility, since the provider of the storage service could also be contacted to improve their S3 support.
