OCI customers may be aware that we have had a few datasources we had marked as "deprecated" because we intended to re-write them against our "storage" schema. This would allow them to:
Me More easily extensible by OCI engineering
Support the possibility of OCI engineering implementing performance support.
Well, that time is is now for HCP - Hitachi's object platform. I can get you early access to a data source patch that will allow you to deploy this re-written data source that will:
Add object count support for buckets and namespaces
Introduce performance support
We intend to ship this in the next OCI Data Source Service Pack and maintenance release, but this *missed* the freeze of those that we released a week ago, so the next ones are some number of months out.
