Get Started with Object Storage

Object Storage provides unlimited, high-performance, durable, and secure data storage. Data is uploaded as objects that are stored in buckets.


Flexible storage for unstructured data

The Object Storage service can store an unlimited amount of unstructured data of any content type, including analytic data and rich content, like images and videos. Object Storage provides several connectivity options, including a native REST API, along with OpenStack Swift API compatibility, and an HDFS plugin. Object Storage also offers a Java SDK and Python CLI access for management.

Strong encryption

All data stored in Object Storage is encrypted at rest using the AES 256 encryption algorithm.

Deep integration with Identity and Access Management

Tight integration with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management policies manages access to buckets and objects.
