Welcome to Augeias’s documentation!¶
Augeias is a small, RESTful, webapplication that allows you to store digital objects in an object store. While it allows you to communicate with you objects as a service, it also decouples the storage implementation from the interface.
For this purpose, Augeias, allows you to define multiple collections. Every collection can be served by a different storage module. So, one collection might store it’s objects on the filesystem while another one might store it’s objects in an Amazon S3 environment. The client that communicates with Augeias doesn’t need to know where the digit alobjects it’s receiving are stored.
