Object Storage service

Ceph Object Gateway provides Object Storage (Swift) API for end users in MOSK deployments. For the API compatibility, refer to Ceph Documentation: Ceph Object Gateway Swift API.

Object storage enablement




Enables the object storage and provides a RADOS Gateway Swift API that is compatible with the OpenStack Swift API.

To enable the service, add object-storage to the service list:

    - object-storage

To create the RADOS Gateway pool in Ceph, see Container Cloud Operations Guide: Enable Ceph RGW Object Storage.

Object storage server-side encryption


Ceph Object Gateway also provides Amazon S3 compatible API. For details, see Ceph Documentation: Ceph Object Gateway S3 API. Using integration with the OpenStack Key Manager service (Barbican), the objects uploaded through S3 API can be encrypted by Ceph Object Gateway according to the AWS Documentation: Protecting data using server-side encryption with customer-provided encryption keys (SSE-C) specification.

Instead of Swift, such configuration uses an S3 client to upload server-side encrypted objects. Using server-side encryption, the data is sent over a secure HTTPS connection in an unencrypted form and the Ceph Object Gateway stores that data in the Ceph cluster in an encrypted form.
