Amazon S3 compatible API

We provide support for the Amazon S3 API. This means you can use the S3 compatible object storage API to access files on Google Docs, RackSpace Cloud Files, or Microsoft OneDrive, or any of the many other clouds that we support.

The S3 API is available on our SaaS services and on the appliance.

To use the S3 API you will need the:

  1. Cloud S3 Endpoint
  2. Access Key ID
  3. Secret Access Key

1. Cloud S3 Endpoint

For our SaaS services use one of the following S3 API endpoints:

Naturally http endpoints are not secure and should not be used for production data.

For appliances contact your administrator for the “Cloud S3 Domain Name”.

2. Access Key ID

The Access Key ID is your SME or File Fabric username.

3. Secret Access Key

You can obtain the API secret key by logging into the File Fabric going to My Account from the sidebar and copying the key from where it says API secret key.

The File Fabric's S3 interface can be used with almost any S3-compatible tool including Storage Made Easy's S3 Cloud Explorer and AWS' command line iterface (AWS CLI). Here are links to some information about those tools:
