Sharing legacy application data with cloud native application using S3 protocol

Many legacy applications use file systems to share data sets. You can access and share the legacy data in the file system by using the S3 operations.

To share data:

  • Export the pre-existing file system datasets, that is, RWX volume such as Ceph FileSystem (CephFS) or create a new file system datasets using the S3 protocol.
  • Access file system datasets from both file system and S3 protocol.
  • Configure S3 accounts and map them to the existing or a new file system unique identifiers (UIDs) and group identifiers (GIDs).
