Bucket

Before you proceed it is important to understand the meaning of "buckets". To use the Object Storage service each Object Storage account needs to first create a container where to store/save the files. The technical term to define this container is "bucket". Within the remote space the bucket is represented by a folder created by the user. The name of such created folder will generate the URL of the files it contains.

Here is an example of the URL which reaches the file uploaded in the folder:
http://URL Region/bucket/file name other http://bucket.URL Region/file name
Therefore if for the Region URL we have "r1-it.storage.cloud.it", for the folder name we have (bucket) "backup" and for the uploaded file we have "example.txt" the result would be:
http://r1-it.storage.cloud.it/backup/example.txt other http://backup.r1-it.storage.cloud.it/example.txt

There are a few rules, which need to be respected and considered, with regards to the folder (bucket) which the user will be creating in the remote space:
  • the system requires that each bucket has a unique name within the same Region;
  • the name "bucket" cannot be used;
  • it needs to be between 3 and 63 characters long;
  • the name can include letters (small letters) and numbers; it cannot include spaces; it cannot include special characters apart from the symbols . – provided they are not placed at the beginning or at the end of the name and are not placed one after the other;
  • the buckets cannot be nested but can only be created in the root of the remote space;
  • it is possible to create up to 100 buckets for each account;
