Application Process of the Object Storage Service

Application Process of the Object Storage Service

This section introduces the application process of Object Storage Service and provides guidance for users to use Object Storage Service.

Figure 3-1 shows the application process of the object storage service after the OceanStor 9000 hardware and software are installed. The process includes the service configuration on the OceanStor 9000, preparation for upper-layer application clients, service provisioning for end users, and routine system operation and maintenance.

OceanStor 9000 does not integrate a client of object storage service. After the OceanStor 9000 completes the initialization and basic configuration, the OceanStor 9000 operators need to provide clients of the object storage service and provision services to end users. Administrators need to ensure timely maintenance and management during the daily operation of the OceanStor 9000.

Figure 3-1  Application Process of the Object Storage Service

Object storage service can be used as the process below:

  1. Initialize.

    The initialization is performed on the OceanStor 9000.

    1. Initializaing the System Autentication Mode.

      When logging in to the system for the first time after software is installed, you need to initialize the system autentication mode.

    2. Initialize the system.

      When logging in to the system for the first time after software is installed, you need to initialize system configurations. For details, see Initializing the System.

    3. Configure the storage area.

      Configuring a storage area includes configuring public parameters, managing the storage area, managing AZs, managing clusters, managing cluster groups, and monitoring cluster status.

    4. Configure the access parameters for clients.

      The parameters include the domain name of the object storage service, DNS, the NAT IP address translation, and whether time verification is enabled in the authentication.

  2. Open an account of the object storage service.

    The account is the credential for using the object storage service. OceanStor 9000 provides the following methods to open and manage accounts:

    • The super administrator can create and manage accounts by using the GUI-based DeviceManager.
    • You can develop configuration interfaces for account management by using the account management APIs of the OceanStor 9000. For details, see OceanStor 9000 Account Management API Specification and OceanStor 9000 IAM API Reference.
  3. Configure value-added services.

    1. Configure billing services.

      The object storage service enables end users' operations and the size of the data that is stored to be recorded and generated as charging data records (CDRs), which are used for the OceanStor 9000 operators to charge end users.

      You can enable billing services by configuring DeviceManager and CLI and analyze CDRs by referring to OceanStor 9000 Charging Data Record API Guide.

    2. Configure data reconstruction.

      This configuration ensures minimum data loss when disks or nodes fail.

    3. Configure data balancing.

      This configuration ensures balanced data distribution in the system.

  4. Provide services for end users.

    After the object storage service is deployed and its basic configuration on OceanStor 9000 has completed, you can enter the stage of providing services.

    1. The OceanStor 9000 operators provide clients of the object storage.

      The Object Storage Service of the OceanStor 9000 supports interfaces but does not provide upper-layer application clients. The operators need to prepare the clients. For details about how to use APIs and how to develop upper-layer application clients, see OceanStor 9000 Object Storage Service API Reference, OceanStor 9000 Account Management API Specification, OceanStor 9000 IAM API Reference, and OceanStor 9000 Object Storage Service Development Guide.

    2. Provide services for end users.

      After the clients are prepared, OceanStor 9000 users can provide the object storage service for end users based on their self-defined rules.

    3. End users use the object storage service.

      End users can access the storage system by following the rules and use the object storage service.

  5. Manage and maintain the system.

    Due to the continuous running, the system needs timely management and maintenance to ensure normal running.

    1. Manage security policies and certificates.

      Security management is aimed to ensure system security. The system needs timely examination and maintenance.

    2. Manage the cluster.

      You can monitor and maintain the running status of the cluster.

    3. Manage nodes.

      You can start, stop, and delete a single node, and change its IP address and service type during maintenance.

    4. Manage switches.

      You can adjust and manage the location and discovery policy of a switch.

    5. Manage alarms.

      You can handle the generated alarms during system running.

    6. Manage background tasks.

      You can view and manage background tasks during system running.

    7. Connect to external NMSs.

      You can add the OceanStor 9000 to external NMSs for unified management.
