Object Storage: A love story
The HP Cloud blog is running what is likely to be my last HP Cloud video. This one focuses on HP Cloud Object Storage.
Working with object storage has been one of my favorite projects while at HP Cloud. Together with Matt Farina, I built:
- A PHP library for working with object storage and CDN.
- A Drupal module that allows you to store Drupal file assets inside of object storage (and use CDN acceleration)
- And a file-sharing service backed to object storage that I hope HP Cloud decides to release some day.
Cloud-distributed data is convenient, and often a very powerful way to store and deliver files. Because it's so easy to come up with use cases (from cat photo storage to serving static websites to keeping application data), I have really enjoyed working with it. <!--break-->
