This week I’m headed to Austin for two events: Tech Field Day 10, which I run, and a really special conference, TECHunplugged. I spoke at TECHunplugged London back in April and loved the experience. Now it’s coming to the USA for the first time, and the agenda is packed with great content. I highly recommend attending these events!
A Fairy Tale of Two Storage Protocols
It’s clear how this fairy tale ends. So many companies are using “S3 plus” as their standard interface, and even inside their solutions, that it’s safe to say it’s won the cloud storage API battle. But S3 isn’t a finalized spec – the industry will extend and improve it over the coming years. Soon we’ll have a cloud storage standard based on S3, just like we have a LAN file services standard based on CIFS.
