The DELL EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) is a rack-based, flexible, and expandable object storage solution. The ECS is configured through a Web Management Interface frontend (HTTPS). In combination with a Kemp load balancer, an ECS can provide object storage using the protocols S3, Atmos, SWIFT, and Network File System (NFS) in addition to the Web Management Interface. Other protocols such as CAS are also possible but are published without load balancers.

- ECS Portal and Provisioning Services
