Google Storage for Developers Interoperability01 Sep 2010 I finally got my Google Storage for Developers email invite the other day. They promised attendees of Google I/O would get them quicker, it took 3 months. I clicked on the link in my email and requested my keys and logged into the Google Storage Manager. It has a pretty basic interface for managing your buckets and objects. Just like Amazon S3. Then I wanted to test out the interoperability of it. Google claims:
Google Storage is interoperable with a large number of cloud storage tools and libraries that work with services such as Amazon Simple Storage Service. So I downloaded a common Amazon S3 PHP Class and changed the request endpoints, request headers, signature identifiers, ACLs, query string parameters and used my Google developer keys.And it work. It listed my buckets I had created through the Google Storage Manager. I am playing with more to see how I can store files and content at both Amazon S3 and Google Developer Storage. Now to figure out what I will use Google Storage for vs. Amazon S3.
