How does cloud object storage work?

Simplify data migration, scale immediately, and reduce costs — without disrupting your workflow. Object storage handles all the PBs of unstructured data you need cost-effectively, making it ideal for storing and managing large files such as media, backups, and logs.


Get high throughput while minimizing upload failures. Object storage enables S3 Multipart Upload & Download, which leverages parallel connections to optimize bandwidth availability and guarantee fast transfers and recovery options.


Protect your data from ransomware and accidental deletion while maintaining compliance with audit and retention requirements. Cloud object storage upgrades your backup strategy with S3 Object Locking & Versioning features.

S3 compatibility.
