As an IT architect who works on big data and cloud platform solutions, one common challenge is uploading files, especially files larger than 1TB. The problem becomes exasperated when there is no browser plug-in for a reliable and secure upload.
We solved this problem inside NetApp IT by implementing a highly scalable, reliable, and secure upload solution using StorageGRID®, a software-defined, object-based storage solution from NetApp. Because StorageGRID leverages S3, we were able to secure and upload over https with pre-assigned URLS for added security. There were no client-side plug-ins as with the UDP transport layer communication protocol. As a TCP-based solution, the file uploads were fast and reliable. Our solution supports up to 2 TB with multi-part upload features including pause, resume, and cancel features. It was fast and easy to implement with well known technology stacks like S3 SDK, Angular, and Node.
