A Cloud Gateway to OpenStack Object Storage

As quoted from the OpenStack web site:

OpenStack Object Storage is software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of commodity servers to store terabytes or even petabytes of accessible data.

To summarize in a different way, it is open source software to build cloud storage on cheap commodity PCs.

Sounds like a pretty good deal? Certainly it looks attractive to service providers looking to enter the cloud storage market.

If you are building an OpenStack cloud storage offering in your garage now, you will find Gladinet a great help to provide a gateway to your cloud storage once it is ready.

Depending on what you need, you may use Gladinet Cloud Desktop, Gladinet CloudAFS or Gladinet Cloud Backup. You may need all of them as a cloud storage access suite.

The steps are simple and similar across three different products, mount OpenStack Cloud Storage as a virtual directory and then use it with the product as a virtual drive.

You will just need to provide details of the account information and point it to your access point.
