Post Seagate Releases New Kinetic Open Storage API at the Open Stack Summit


Seagate Technology announced it is expanding the open source program associated with its Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform to include API (application programming interface) and libraries. By expanding the platform’s open source initiatives, the company is taking the next big step in fully-enabling software and hardware partners to leverage the new key/value programming interface and integrate it into cloud software stacks, additional devices and new systems.

Following up on contributions to interface specifications contributed to Open Compute Project earlier this year, Seagate is opening the platform’s API, libraries and simulator technologies and enabling the OpenStack community to design, test, and deliver applications and system designs built upon Seagate Kinetic technology. The result is a simple, cost-effective path to object-based solution development at a reduced time to market.

The release of the API and associated libraries will expose source code for various software development languages enabling storage software to talk directly to a Kinetic drive. The Kinetic Open Storage API encourages both software and hardware suppliers to get involved and integrate Kinetic commands into their solutions. The libraries being released today include support for the C++, Java, and Python languages. The open source libraries also encourages developers to leverage the protocol directly and write their own libraries if desired.

Announced in 2013, the Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform is a device-based open source platform that leverages a traditional hard disk drive assembly while adding the essential elements of both a key/value API and Ethernet connectivity to enable greater performance, scale, simplicity, and a lower TCO for scale-out storage architectures.
