Announced during the last OpenIO Summit 2018, the new release OpenIO SDS 18.10 has been announced.

OpenIO SDS transforms commodity servers into large object storage and compute pools. They build a scalable solution designed to grow as you need, that can handle from terabytes to petabytes. This Object Storage solution became Open Source in 2012 (with AGPLv3 license). OpenIO is a pure (open) software object store.

Usually OpenIO SDS has a 6-month release cycle and now following the OpenIO SDS 18.04 released in August 2018, this new version version of SDS is now available with a long list of new features and improvements all throughout the software.

  • Index and search,
  • New alerts and monitoring,
