- Horizon object storage container
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.
- 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| |---| |Public|Accessible to everyone| |Private|Only accessible with authentication|
After this, your container will appear and new options will become available:
- 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
