EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) is a new EMC product to provide object storage (Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift APIs).
EMC has just released ECS Community Edition installer on Github that allows customers to try and use it on standard X86 hardware with Centos 7.
The goal of this post is to install and configure ECS on Gandi Cloud VMs :
- EMC ECS is Java based software
- ECS image will run into Docker container on Centos 7
- ECS image is available in EMCCorp docker registry
- GitHub repository is storing ECS installer (python), I don't know if docker image is open-source too.
So, let's go installing EMC ECS on Gandi VMs ;)
