Organization Name Changing Proposal

AOS is not a good name.

It’s hard to explain to users or developers what Application Oriented Storage really means.

So I propose to change a new organization name, here is related information.

Vision

Our vision is to build a fully open sourced (Under Apache 2.0) storage abstraction that production-ready, high performance, and vendor-agnostic.

  • Make it much easier for service providers to connect with the whole world.
  • Make it much easier for developers to build applications upon various storage services.
  • Make it much easier for users to control, manage, and fully use their data.

Governance

For now, we are sponsored by QingCloud.

We intend to be donated to CNCF, Apache, or others.

Roadmap

For now, we are focus on our golang implementations: go-storage.

In the further, we will

  • Support as many as services we can, see more in Service Integration Tracking.
    • ipfs
    • google drive
    • onedrive
    • minio
    • ftp
    • webdav
    • glusferfs
    • azfile
    • NextCloud
  • Bring this idea to as many as languages we can:
    • rust
    • java
    • python
    • javascript
  • Build applications upon our library
    • ftp
    • webdav
    • object storage services (works like an API gateway)
    • fuse (usersapce file system, allow user to mount a storage service as local path)
    • migration (allow migrate data between storage services)
    • backup (allow backup data between storage services)
    • management (allow manage data between storage services)

Please pick the best name for us!

(Leave comments if you have new ideas.)
