Abstract

Representational State Transfer (REST) is a stateless architectural style and development approach that uses existing web technology and protocols, essentially Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes the concepts, architecture, and design of the DS8870 RESTful API implementation, available for the DS8870 Release 7.5 and later.
It demonstrates how clients can initiate RESTful API communications with their DS8870 storage from a web-browser client, or by using the cURL command-line tool.

This paper is intended for readers who want to explore and experiment with RESTful capabilities and the DS8870. This paper is also a reference for readers who want to understand the internal design points and architecture of DS8870 RESTful API services.
