Object Storage

Store small to very large amounts of data – mirrored in two data centers

The perfect repository for storing small to very large amounts of data. This storage product adheres to the industry standard S3 protocol, which means it is supported by many products on the market today.

This is a “serverless” form of storage – it can be accessed via https directly. There is no need to pre-allocate storage on this medium – you just start writing data to it via https and get billed for the exact amount of data stored on an hourly basis.

Object storage has been designed to handle very large amounts of data (there is practically no limit on the address space).

Customers & Use Cases

Who is it for?

Object storage is primarily used for backups and archiving but can also be used as “regular” storage for infrequently used data like phots, videos etc. It is possible to store very large amounts of data on object storage and it can be “mounted” as a regular storage volume, but it has not been designed to support the semantics of a file system or the performance an SSD provides. It is ideal for storing for storing backups, archiving large amounts of data or infrequently used files.

A popular free client for connecting to S3 storage is Cyberduck, but many backup and archiving products support S3 compatible storage. For a way to mount S3 compatible object storage as a file system on a server, check out FUSE.
