Object storage gives the enterprise reliable, low-cost storage of essentially unlimited capacity, providing the perfect platform for big data sets, media stores and other high volume use cases. On its own, though, object storage is a poor fit for end-user use cases such as home directories and departmental shares because it doesn’t integrate with the Windows file system.
To make object storage work for Windows users we created the S3 Drive, a robust, scalable desktop app that turns any S3-compatible storage into a fully functional Windows 7, 8 or 10 filesystem. You can access the S3 Drive from the Windows command line, from any Windows application and through Windows Explorer just like any other drive on your Windows machine. Standard Windows features such as copy-paste and drag-and-drop are supported.
