How to access to SmartCloud Object Storage

Hey guys,

There are three ways to use SmartCloud Object Storage:

- API

- CloudNas

- Web Access (Beta)

- Third parties tool

If we want to use the API we need to see the documentation in Nirvanix, but we need to change the domain in all request:

http://services.nirvanix.com

by

http://services.smartcloudobjectstorage.com

If we want to access through CloudNAS, you can do via Windows or Linux:

Windows:

1.- Download the Windows CloudNAS application from here: http://services.nirvanix.com/cloudnas/nirvanixApps/win/cloudnas.html
2.- Rename the file to an “.exe” format.
3.- Download the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise object storage SSL Certificate from this link:

http://services.smartcloudobjectstorage.com/ws/Product/GetNewSSLCertificate.ashx

4.- Create this folder “Program Files\Nirvanix\Nirvanix CloudNAS\etc\certs” .
5.- Copy the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise object storage SSL Certificate to the “Program Files\Nirvanix\Nirvanix CloudNAS\etc\certs” folder
6.- Install CloudNAS but DO NOT complete the configuration.
7.- With a text editor, add the configuration setting to the file cloudnas.conf (you have to create it in the folder “Program Files\Nirvanix\Nirvanix CloudNAS\etc\ ” )

CloudNAS.MountPoint=T
Log.File.Dir=C:\Program Files\Nirvanix\Nirvanix CloudNAS\log
Cache.BasePath=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\nirvanix
Nirvanix.WS.ServicesUrl=http://services.smartcloudobjectstorage.com

8.- Change the permissions over the Nirvanix folder (right click over the “Program Files/Nirvanix” folder, and left click over properties). Set full control to the users in that host.

9.- Complete the configuration process for CloudNAS, Start-> Nirvanix-> Nirvanix-> CloudNAS Configuration.
The login details are:

Username: your_usernmae_in_the_child_account
Password: password
Application Name: app_name_of_the_app_pool
Application Key: app_key_of_the_app_pool

10.- Access from Mi PC

Linux:

4.- Create this folder “/opt/cloudnas/etc/certs ” .

5.- Copy the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise object storage SSL Certificate to the “/opt/cloudnas/etc/certs ” folder.
