Benefits

Cloudist S3 Storage supports next-generation web, mobile, and cloud applications, providing direct access to Cloudist S3 using the S3 API. Utilize the low cost and high capacity Cloudist S3 as a natural repository for your backup and storage solutions, which fully supports native S3 connectors such as Veeam, Commvault, Synology, Cohesity and Isilon among others. Also, as 80% of files on primary storage are typically inactive, organizations can reclaim capacity on expensive block storage systems, and automate with policy-based file movement.

Compatible

Wide support for developer languages and frameworks — provides simple, secure access using almost any language or framework including .NET, Java, C, Flex, PHP, Python, Ruby, and JavaScript with language bindings.

Protected

With the ability to set retention or versioning on the object you can prevent unwanted editing or deletion of the object.

Fast

Centrally located with <15ms latency to all major cities in the Nordics.

Encrypted

Encryption of data at rest using 256-bit AES encryption— allows you to ensure the protection of your data.

Object Lock

If you run Veeam or similar backup software, you can configure buckets for Object Lock with great advantage, which increases protection against ransomware.

Third party compatible

Compatibility with a range of solutions from third-party cloud solutions - for example Dell EMC Cloudpools or CloudArray.

Do not pay for any hidden costs such as I/O data, but only for the area you consume. We also have no start-up fees or minimum fees, and like our other services, we don't bind you to any time-based contract.

An example of one of the many areas of use is to connect your Veeam, Commvault, Cohesity or other backup software to, for example, move out all backup data that is older than 1 month. Via policies, you can set up a good model that suits you or your end customer.

1TB or 500TB or why not 2PB? Our system scales better than anything else and you'll never have to worry about running out of space.

FAQ

What is S3 object storage?

S3 object storage also know as S3 compatible storage is a shortening for Simple Storage Service and is developed by AWS. Instead of organizing files in a directories, object storage systems store files in containers often called as buckets and use unique IDs to retrieve them. It is simple and quick to set up and compatible with thousands of softwares and storage systems.

What is Object Lock?

With Object Lock, you can prevent objects from being deleted or overwritten for a certain time or indefinitely. You can use Object Lock to meet regulatory requirements that require WORM storage, or to simply add another layer of protection against object modification and deletion.

What type of storage is S3 used for?

Let us say that you have a backup of your workload and are runing out of diskspace, then you can utilize S3 storage for a way to move older infrequent data to a S3 bucket and free up space. The same principal goes for a NAS (file storage). Another case is that you want to archive files and object away from your expensive primary storage. Container services or applications is also a usecase for S3 Storage.

How does S3 storage work?

S3 compliant object storage means that the service talks to S3 via API, applications that support S3 API can use this service. The user gets a special storage pool (namespace) and within his namespace the user creates buckets which are a form of a directory. Each bucket has its own policy and is controlled by the bucket creator. When files are uploaded, associated permissions set on the bucket control who can and cannot access the files. For example. If a policy is set that user1 has read-only rights, all requests with this reference can only list and view objects located in that specific bucket. Another example is that we can set that only users with IP no x.x.x.x get access etc.
