Object storage from the dashboard

Using the dashboard

Data must be stored in a container (also referred to as a bucket) so we need to create at least one container prior to uploading data. To create a new container, navigate to the “Containers” section and click “Create Container”.

Provide a name for the container and select the appropriate access level and click “Create”.

Note

Setting “Public” level access on a container means that anyone with the container’s URL can access the content of that container.

You should now see the newly created container. As this is a new container, it currently does not contain any data. Click on “Upload Object” to add some content.

Click on the “Browse” button to select the file you wish to upload and click “Upload Object”.

In the Containers view the Object Count has gone up to one and the size of the container is now 314 Bytes.
