Support for the S3 REST API

The StorageGRID Webscale system supports the storage and retrieval of objects from client applications that interface with the StorageGRID Webscale system by using the Simple Storage Service (S3) Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface (REST API).

Support for the S3 REST API enables you to connect service-oriented applications developed for S3 web services with on-premises object storage that uses the StorageGRID Webscale system. This requires minimal changes to a client application's current use of S3 REST API calls.
