Versity Gateway

The Versity Gateway serves as a bridge between file based storage systems and applications that rely on S3 object interfaces. It enables applications to interact with file storage using familiar S3 operations like put and get, allowing for easy integration and compatibility. Built from scratch in Go, a highly efficient programming language known for its performance and scalability, the Versity Gateway leverages Go’s benefits to deliver exceptional speed and efficiency.


  • The Versity Gateway is designed to meet the community’s need for a reliable open source, high-performance object to file translation tool
  • It provides seamless file storage capabilities for S3-based applications, enabling compatibility with file based storage systems and offering scalability for demanding workloads
  • The Versity Gateway is an Apache 2.0 licensed open source project
  • Collaborators include Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre
  •  Versity invites the community to contribute to the Versity Gateway’s development, growth, and enhancement

Benefits of the
Versity Gateway


Multiple Versity Gateway instances may be deployed in a cluster to increase aggregate throughput. The Versity Gateway’s stateless architecture allows any request to be serviced by any gateway thereby distributing workloads and enhancing performance. Load balancers may be used to evenly distribute requests across the cluster of gateways for optimal performance.

High Performance

The Versity Gateway utilizes Fiber, a lightweight and high-performance HTTP server framework, to handle incoming requests. Compared to older web frameworks like gorilla/mux, Fiber offers improved performance, resulting in faster processing and response times.

Modular Backend Support

The Versity Gateway currently supports generic POSIX file backend storage and Versity’s ScoutFS filesystem. The system has been designed with modularity in mind, making it easy for the community to add additional backend storage systems in the future.
