    Hello Matt,

    I'm Network Optix Support team representative. 

    First, let me disclose some future plans here.

    In 4.2 our team is going to introduce AWS S3-based Nx Cloud Storage with certain and specific licensing/billing.
    Not sure that it will meat your words about being "scalable", from how we see it now it's more about consumer-level customers.

    Second, having previous thing in mind it becomes clear that we're definitely gonna use S3 API to implement that. Not sure what company strategy will be in future, maybe they'll even decide to make that part of code available for all customers to build up their own Storage Clusters. I am personally a supporter of this idea and will root for.

    Third thing - not sure if you've heard of that - but with every Media Server installation there's special Storage SDK distributed which allows anyone with certain experience in C++ to develop their own implementation of any storage-related protocol.
    As of know I've heard of at least 2 cases of the more or less successful S3 integration. I don't have their contacts, sorry, but it would be really cool if they jump in if they see this discussion!

    I have a solution that works with S3 protocol on Windows based servers. It is on the operating system level and NX sees a new hard drive that can be used for storage. It is currently in private beta. Pricing will be competitive to AWS based storage.

    Sergey,   Thank you all for the follow up and update.  I look forward to seeing the new features as they are released.

     

    Matthew,  I sent you an email.

     

    If anyone else has experience with this kind of deployment, I'm open to ideas.

     

    Much appreciated,

    This was an interesting find on Freelancer... don't know if the project was ever executed or successful.

    We have this completed for both Ubuntu and Windows, the Plug-In supports both Main and Backup storage to AWS Cloud Buckets, along with storage retention times, the ability to shift from S3 Hot Storage to Glacier Storage Class for long term retention, etc. We are a few weeks away from finishing the licensing storage and final testing, but we hope to launch along with 4.0 production release. I will provide another update when ecommerce licensing site is up and live which will allow for Reseller Licensing and the Management of Cloud Storage on all Powered-By-Nx products, eta for production looks to be about 3-4 weeks, depending on when Nx Launches 4.0 for production.
