System Management

OpenIO SDS offers several tools for system management, for customers of any size and with different needs. A comprehensive web UI was developed directly on top of the OpenIO CLI and management APIs. This approach allows customers to build their own customized user interface and integrate commands in their scripts to automate tasks.

Deployment tools

A complete set of pre-built scripts, designed for easily installing and configuring large-scale clusters, simplifies deployment and configuration of large deployments.

CLI / Command Line Interface

A central tool provides comprehensive command-line access to the native Python API, with a consistent presentation of all the modules. Easily extended, it is easy to use and simplifies the management of an OpenIO SDS cluster.

The CLI tools mostly require network accesses to the grid, meaning the tools are meant to be run on grid nodes or their clients.

openio action ${container_id}/${objectid}


This is a graphical user interface that offers an overview of cluster status and enables easy monitoring for day-to-day operations without using the CLI. A comprehensive dashboard allows users to see the status of the cluster in real time, and to perform most day-to-day tasks including user management, cluster expansion, and maintenance, as well as performance analysis.

Replicator Service

The repicator service allows OpenIO’s customers to asynchronously replicate a namespace on an other namespace. In other words, the replicator is the key element in your multi-datacenters Disaster Recovery Plans (DRP).
