SwiftStack Primary Use Case

Scientific Information Officer at a consultancy with 201-500 employees

Right now, it's a backup storage system, so it's used as a backup repository. We point our Commvault backups to it and soon to be Veeam backups.

The primary use case is general purpose object storage for preproduction types of test and development. We use it in research, development, test, and evaluations (RDT&E) for software development.

We are using it for the backup and recovery and object storage. We use the Swift and NFS. We have a NAS gateway such as Avere in front of it. So, it is multipurpose. I would like to use it for more direct NFS, if that feature does become available.

We have a number of use cases. The most important one is that we run a data-sharing service for Dutch universities and higher education and research institutes. The service is used to share research data. It's based on cloud software which uses the object store as a storage backend. That is our most important user. 

We have another user from Leiden University, which has the most data in it. They have a few very huge electron microscopes. They do research with them and distribute the data through SwiftStack to their customers.

It's all in the nonprofit sphere.
