Creating Containers

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

Any user with the Service Administrator role can create containers. 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 Java library, see createContainer in Java API Reference for Oracle Cloud Storage Service.

For information about creating containers by using the REST API, see Create Container in OpenStack Object Storage Service API Reference.
