As your business grows and your requirements change, you no longer need to estimate how much storage you will need in the future. With your NETWAYS Cloud Object Storage you are flexible and always well positioned!
Put your static web content in your Object Storage and load assets from there while your web application stays stateless.

Hosted, managed and made with love in Germany.

Metadata Tags

Your data is bundled with customizable metadata tags and a unique identifier to form objects, stored in a flat address space.

Protocol Access

S3 is the protocol developed by Amazon – Swift is OpenStack’s counterpart. With us, it’s possible to access your storage with both.

What Is Nice To Know

What are the advantages of object storage?
  • Scalability: Object storage can easily scale to accommodate large amounts of data, by adding more nodes to the storage cluster.
  • Durability: Data in object storage systems is typically stored redundantly across multiple nodes, making it highly durable.
  • Accessibility: Object storage allows for easy access to data from anywhere in the world over the internet.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Object storage can be more cost-effective than traditional storage systems, as it allows for the storage of large amounts of data at a lower cost per gigabyte.
  • Flexibility: Object storage supports a variety of data types and formats, making it suitable for a wide range of use cases.
Is the NWS object storage compatible to industry standards like S3?
Yes, Ceph object storage is compatible with industry standards like S3. Ceph provides an S3-compatible interface for object storage called RADOS Gateway (RGW). RGW is an object storage gateway that allows applications to store and retrieve data using the S3 API. It supports all S3 API operations, including authentication, bucket and object operations, and lifecycle management.

RGW can be deployed in front of the Ceph storage cluster, providing a unified storage solution for object, block, and file storage. This makes it possible to use Ceph as a single, unified storage platform for a variety of workloads, including cloud-native applications and traditional enterprise workloads.

Can I use objects directly in my application?

Yes, you can use objects from an object storage directly in your application. Object storage is designed to provide a simple and flexible way to store and retrieve data over the internet, which makes it an ideal storage solution for modern cloud-based applications.

Object storage provides a REST API that allows you to access objects from anywhere in the world over the internet. You can use this API to upload, download, and manage objects stored in the object storage system directly from your application code.

Most object storage systems also provide SDKs and libraries in a variety of programming languages that simplify the process of accessing and manipulating objects in the storage system. These SDKs and libraries provide a higher-level abstraction over the REST API, making it easier to integrate object storage with your application.
