We have two use cases. The primary one is a backup target for our backup software and we also use it for archiving off of our primary storage. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. View full review »

Ron Trompert
Group Leader Online Data Services at Surfsara
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. View full review »

Chris Gatch
Chief Technology Officer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
We are a data center operator and service provider. We deliver cloud storage as a service solution to other customers. So, it's a multitenant cloud service solution, like Amazon S3 or Azure Blob Service. Therefore, cloud storage is our use case. Our customers are getting file volumes, storage volumes, or object containers from us. They put data on them and manage them on our portal. We are using the current version of the product.
