Use cases

Last Updated: Aug 21, 2018

• CSG has been widely applied. Here are some simple use cases:

• File gateway

  1. You need to build a large-capacity NAS instance with limited local storage.
  2. You need to store a large number of files on the cloud and expect that the files will be accessed through a file system so that you will not have to modify the code.
  3. You need to access the same set of files in multiple IDCs with NAS.

• Block gateway

  1. You need to back up data to the cloud using backup software that supports iSCSI efficient transmission.
  2. You need to import and store video streams to storage volumes through iSCSI.

As a lightweight storage gateway, CSG can be deployed in your own IDC as well as in the cloud. For more information about the deployment procedures, see the Quick Start Guide.
