Cloud Object Storage Features

  • A Cloud Object Store
    Store your objects across multiple datacenters over a straightforward HTTPS REST API. Objects are stored and returned with their header metadata. The namespace is hierarchical and can be searched (yea!) Objects can be arbitrarily large and numerous.
  • A Powerful Compute Service
    The lightweight jobs interface works directly on the object store in multi-level map and reduce phases. Standard pipelining using stdio-like flows mean the most common open analytic tools work on XcellHost today.
  • Highly Durable
    By default, XcellHost stores two copies of your data in two datacenters. Each object can be stored with more or less redundancy, between one and six copies. On top of that, each copy is redundantly distributed across physical storage devices using erasure encoding to further survive unfortunate physical failures.
  • Expandable
    Should you need to, it is also easy to add custom tools by including job-wide objects that can house applications and initialization scripts. You can even link to another user's public tool objects to share scripts and applications.
  • Developer Friendly
    If you've programmed for the web, you can use XcellHost as it is based on the Unix philosophy of offering small, well-crafted tools. Helper SDK support include: Node.js, Ruby, Java and Python, with more to come. Of course, the REST API is available to any language with HTTPS support.
  • Easy to Use Analysis
    From real-time web page display decisions, to machine learning, to scientific and engineering analytics, XcellHost can help. The built-in compute service lets you effortlessly initiate hundreds of thousands of analytic tasks and gather them to create on-demand insights. Manta is a Platform as a Service for Big Data.
  • Compute on Data
    XcellHost is designed with the novel idea of bringing compute to data instead of extracting data to do computation. Describing compute jobs is miniscule compared to large datasets. This means you now will have a durable system of record and a flexible analytics tool.
  • On-demand Jobs
    Ad hoc inspection of a large dataset can be performed at or near interactive speeds. Compute resources are quickly run from pre-provisioned compute pools. Explicitly designed jobs can be refined over time and run repeatedly in a simple JSON pipeline. Tasks are billed out in seconds, so you don't waste money on idle machines.
