Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG) - Supports Express Synchronization
Nov 18 2019Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG)
Target customers: 1. Organizations that run businesses in multiple locations, for example, large enterprises that have offices at different places, large retail chains, and supermarkets. 2. Organizations that want to distribute data stored in OSS buckets, for example, organizations that run businesses in the fields of film and television, education, and genetic and medical services. 3. Small and medium-sized websites or forums that upload data to OSS and process data in Elastic Compute Service (ECS). Features released: you can use a file gateway to detect incremental changes in OSS with a delay of a few seconds, and synchronize the metadata to the attached clients. With express synchronization, the file gateway is not required to scan all the objects. Express synchronization provides the following benefits: 1. Data changes can be detected and synchronized to ECS instances mapped to file gateways with a delay of a few seconds, and then processed at the earliest opportunity. 2. If you write data to an OSS bucket, file gateways mapped to the OSS bucket can read the data at the same time even if they are deployed in different regions. This simplifies data distribution and sharing for enterprises and institutions that manage their workloads across regions.
