Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

1. What is S3?

Simple Storage Service (S3) is a data storage service without creating a hierarchy. It is basically a file hosting service that allows you to store any amount of data and receive it at any time via the Internet.

2. What is Object Storage?

Object Storage stores data, called “objects” in containers. Each object has its own identifier, which is used to access an object. Objects are stored with metadata used to describe object properties. Each object has its own URL, so accessing data is often as easy as sending an HTTP request, either by visiting the object in the browser or by extracting it from the command line. 

3. What kind of data can I store in object storage? 

You can store any kind of data. All data can be divided into two categories: "hot" and "cold". "Hot" is the content that is used very often - photo, video, audio files, files for downloading, business documents and so on. "Cold" data is the rarely used files that require storage - backups, CCTV records, archives. 

Note: If your data change regularly, it is better to consider alternative ways of cloud storage.

4. How much data can I store in Cloud4U Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage?

You can store an unlimited amount of data in Cloud4U Object Storage.

5. What is the Amazon S3 Compatibility API?

The Amazon S3 Compatibility API is a set of Object Storage APIs that you can use to create products and services that interact with other storage services, such as Amazon S3.

6. What are the benefits of the Object Storage?

  • Storage of unstructured data in their original format.

  • Reducing the load on your current capacity. Storage utilization is reduced by uploading content from storage rather than from web servers.

  • Scalability of the service as your data volume and/or number of requests for data grows.

  • Optimization of data storage costs. You only pay for actually used resources (Pay-as-you-go).

7. Is the Object Storage Suitable for Big Data?

Absolutely! Object Storage allows you to store and give your applications unlimited amounts of data. 

8. Will the Object Storage work with any kind applications?

The application must support S3 REST API. 

9. What is the advantage of non-hierarchical data storage?

Building a hierarchy significantly extends the route to the data (object) and thus the response time of the application. In object storage, the data lies in a flat environment and can be almost instantly transmitted to the application or the Internet via http/https.

10. What information can metadata include?

Absolutely anything from various characteristics of an object to the access rights to the object for each particular user.
