The Public Cloud Archive offer is an unlimited storage solution with simple billing tailored to your needs. There are many types of object containers:

  • For static hosting (static website).
  • For private hosting (e.g. storage of personal data).
  • For public hosting (to store everything that is accessible to the public).
  • For cold storage (archiving).

The first step is to create a container that will hold your files.
