What does S3 compatibility mean?

I thought S3 is already a centralized data storage service like Storj but centralized. Does being S3 compatible mean that converting code that used to use S3 into code that uses Storj is easier?

Basically, if you wrote an application or tool that uses Amazon’s S3 storage services, you should be able to use the Tardigrade services instead with minimal changes.


Yup, @Knowledge is correct. It means compatibility with the S3 API. From an infrastructure architecture standpoint the platforms are much different!
