Welcome to the VMware Cloud Director® Object Storage Extension™ documentation page.

VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension is an integrated storage solution that is provisioned and managed within the VMware Cloud Director framework.

VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension is a standalone middleware service that runs atop of a storage cluster or AWS S3 and provides object storage capabilities to the users of VMware Cloud Director.

VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension supports Cloudian HyperStore, DELL ECS, and Amazon native S3 platforms. You can also integrate any S3 compliant object storage platform using an extension point called Object Storage Interoperability Service (OSIS). OSIS defines a set of management API specifications for VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension to communicate with third-party object storage platforms and exchange tenant and user information. For more information, check the VMware Object Storage Interoperability Service Development Guide.

The following diagram illustrates the architecture of VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension and the network connections between VMware and storage platform components.
