As you might have seen in a couple of our product/development updates, we’ve been working on a new S3 gateway. The biggest difference between this new gateway and our existing gateway is that the new gateway is multi-tenant, and Storj Labs will be hosting a few of them. This means you’ll be able to integrate with the Storj network via HTTP, and you won’t have to run anything extra on your end.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Gateway MT is still in BETA, so DO NOT run anything mission-critical on it.
How Can You Help?
We need your help to test the Gateway MT. We’ve done a good deal of internal testing and could use some fresh eyes and different use cases to help us uncover bugs to figure out where we need to improve. Take a look at theGateway MT GitHub repo If you want to learn more!
We’re also looking for beta testers on a new Satellite in a closed beta called US2. This Satellite has many improvements, including multipart upload support—we’ll share more about these improvements at a later date. If you’re interested in helping us test the new functionality, please email email@example.com
Where do you report issues?
The best place to report issues while testing the Gateway MT is this forum topic. Our Gateway MT engineering team will be checking it and asking questions/ trying to resolve any uncovered problems. Depending on what we have going on internally we may not be able to respond immediately.
Known Issues with the Gateway MT:
- It doesn’t support multipart upload yet
- It doesn’t support end-to-end encryption yet
- There are some performance issues
