Creating Containers

A container is a storage compartment that provides a way to organize the data stored in Oracle Storage Cloud Service.

You should create at least one container for your account. Containers are similar to a directory structure but with a key distinction: unlike directories, containers cannot be nested.
  • For information about creating containers by using the REST API, see Create Container in OpenStack Object Storage Service API Reference.
