Overview

The first step to using the Public Cloud storage solution is creating a container for your files.
This guide explains how to create one from OpenStack Horizon.

Create the container

  • Log in to Horizon
  • Select "Object Store" on the left
  • Click on "Create Container"

A new window will open:
From here you can:
  • Name your container
  • Select the type of container
Public Accessible to everyone
Private Only accessible with authentication
After this, your container will appear and new options will become available:
You can:
  • See the details of your container
  • Make it public or private
  • Delete it

If you click on the name of your container you can also:
  • Create a pseudo-folder
In fact, the data placed in the Object Storage is not stored in a traditional hierarchical system (Folder > Subfolder and so on...)
Data is all stored at the same level, which makes files quicker to access.
Pseudo-folders are organised by a common prefix on the object's name which means that you can organise your data in a different way.
  • Upload your files
  • Delete your files and pseudo-folders
  • Download your files
  • Copy your files
