In this briefing, Red Hat's Eran Tamir gives a deep dive on OpenShift Multi-Cloud Object Gateway which is a new data federation service introduced in OpenShift Container Storage 4.2. The technology is based on the NooBaa project, which was acquired by Red Hat in November 2018, and open sourced recently. The Multi-Cloud Object Gateway has an object interface with an S3 compatible API. The service is deployed automatically as part of OpenShift Container Storage 4.2 and provides the same functionality regardless of its hosting environment. Simplicity, Single experience anywhere

In its default deployment, the Multi-Cloud Object Gateway provides a local object service backed by using local storage or cloud-native storage, if hosted in the cloud. Every data bucket on the Multi-Cloud Object Gateway is backed, by default, by using local storage or cloud-native storage, if hosted in the cloud. No additional configuration is required. The Multi-Cloud Object Gateway’s object service API is always an S3 API, which means a single experience on-premise and in the cloud, for any cloud provider. This translates to a zero learning curve when moving to, or adding a new cloud vendor. That translates into greater agility for your teams. There's more information over here.
