Project “littles3” launched

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

I have launched a project, “littles3“, on Google Code. This project is a Java web application which provides a storage service based on the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) API.

So far, I have implemented a StorageEngine which stores content to the local file system. It currently does the basic storage function outlined in the S3 api. What isn’t implemented yet?

  1. ACL
  2. Custom metadata

Why am I doing this? I think that Amazon S3 is a pretty neat thing. It provides hosted storage at a very reasonable rate. But there may be times when you want to store your data locally but still use the Amazon S3 API. This server will do that.
