If you want to deploy VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension on top of an ECS cluster, the ECS cluster must meet specific criteria.
Following is a list of the ECS components that you must deploy.
- An ECS Admin Service HTTPS API endpoint accessible from the internal network of VMware Cloud Director. By default, the endpoint is configured to use port 4443.
- ECS S3 Service accessible from the internal network of VMware Cloud Director. By default, the S3 service uses port 9021 for SSL communication.
- ECS Management Console accessible from external networks.
The object lock and the object tagging features for ECS are supported from ECS version 3.6.
To synchronize the clocks of all VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension and ECS nodes, use the same NTP server.
