Object Storage

Store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere using native web protocols

The ideal service to store data for websites, web applications, mobile applications, IoT sensors, and devices. Object storage can also be used for data archival, data lakes, backups and disaster recovery. All object storage operations are done via a modern and easy to use REST API.

Geo-replicated object storage is designed for 99.999999999% of durability. Objects are automatically replicated to preserve three copies of the data, one in each region of the Catalyst Cloud.

Single region object storage is optimised for cost efficiency. Three replicas of the object are preserved as far away from each other within the chosen region.

Storage policies

Object storage containers can be configured for high durability (using the geo-replicated policy) or cost efficiency (using the single region policy).

High durability

Geo-replicated policy provides 99.999999999% of data durability. Three copies of the data are written to one region and then asynchronously replicated to preserve one copy in each region.

Data integrity

Automatic checksums run from time to time to ensure data integrity. Objects are automatically re-created from healthy replicas if data corruption is detected.

Access control

Containers can be made public or private with a single click. You can also generate temporary URLs for granular public access to individual objects.

Encryption at rest

Data stored in object storage is automatically encrypted at rest using an AES 256-bit cipher.

Object versioning

Containers can be configured to automatically store previous versions of objects when they are modified.

Temporary URL

Expose individual objects to the internet for a configurable time period.

Static websites

You can host static websites and serve them straight out of object storage, without the need of additional web servers.
