Cloud Object Storage

Cloud object storage is a format for storing unstructured data in the cloud. Object storage is considered a good fit for the cloud because it is elastic, flexible and it can more easily scale into multiple petabytes to support unlimited data growth. The architecture stores and manages data as objects compared to block storage, which handles data as blocks, and logical volumes and file storage which store data in hierarchical files.

Object storage, along with the metadata, can be accessed directly via application program interfaces (APIs), HTTP and HTTPS. That differs from block storage volumes, which only can be accessed when they are attached to an operating system.

SpectraCloud provides Cloud object storage from Amazon SES & Wasabi.
