The Amazon S3 API has become the de-facto standard for object storage API access. As such, many software products adopt the S3 API first. The Storage Made Easy File Fabric provides an S3 compatible API endpoint for any storage backend. This means that non-S3 storage providers such as Dropbox, Azure, Google Drive, OneDrive, Sharepoint and others can now be accessed via the S3 API.
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Command Line Interface (CLI) is a command line tool for accessing AWS compatible services. AWS CLI is one of the most feature rich S3 tools publicly available (Free!!!) .
This article will outline the setup AWS CLI with the SME File Fabric and non-S3 compatible storage providers.
