Applies to

  • IBM Spectrum Scale 5.0.4 (May apply to other versions)
  • StorageGRID 11.x

Answer

  • IBM Spectrum Scale 5.0.4 can be configured to connect to StorageGRID as a cloud destination using Swift3. 
  • Swift3 is an emulated version of S3, and can be used in IBM Spectrum Scale to connect to object stores like StorageGRID.
  • Traditional S3 can only be used on IBM Specture Scale with Amazon cloud, and cannot be configured with any cloud destination like StorageGRID.
  • For more information on how to configure IBM Spectrum Scale 5.0.4 using Swift3, visit the IBM Knowledge Center.
    • NOTE: Swift3 uses an emulated version of S3 API, and does not use the Swift API as the name would suggest
