Create a container

Create a container

  1. In Control Panel, go to Object StorageContainers.

  2. Click Create Container.

  3. Enter a name for the container. For compatibility with the S3 API, the container name must be unique within the object store and conform to Amazon's S3 bucket naming rules, see the Bucket naming rules instructions in Amazon's documentation for details.

  4. Select the type of container:

    • private — for storing backups and other data with access by login and password or authorization token;
    • public — for distributing the content of a website or web application, available without authorization.
  5. Select a storage class:

    • standard storage — for storing and distributing frequently requested data;
    • cold storage — for storing rarely requested data.

    Storage class only affects resource cost, technically and speed-wise the classes are the same. Once a container is created, the storage class cannot be changed.

  6. Optional: if you need a container with Virtual-Hosted-Style addressing to work with the S3 API, in the Addressing block, check the Virtual-Hosted checkbox. You can enable Virtual-Hosted addressing only once.

  7. Click Create Container.
