After a few months of beta, Object Storage by Scaleway is available to all. The service, compatible with the S3 API, allows easy storage and delivery of up to several petabytes of data.

nl-ams) and is being deployed in Paris (
Upload your first data is very easy, you just have to connect to the new Scaleway console.
Fast, Secure & Reliable
To make your files available in milliseconds, we have equipped Object Storage servers with SSD and NVMe SSD disks. In addition, we guarantee 99.999% integrity of your data and you can enable the bucket versioning from the command line or using the console to log all versions of your objects.
The visibility of your files is also configurable. Listing the objects in a bucket is by default private however, you can easily set it to be accessible to everyone. You can also choose to make an object public in order to share it on a website or in an email.
Network side, Object Storage has a redundant output capacity of 100 Gbit/s per rack. Connections are also encrypted with SSL and protected by our anti-DDoS security. Attacks are automatically identified and filtered by our mitigation algorithms.

Object Storage pricing is simple and cost-effective. It is made of a first pack of 500 GB of storage and 500 GB of outgoing transfer for €5 excluding tax per month then of a very competitive per-use invoicing beyond:
- €0.01/GB per month or €0.00002/GB per hour excluding tax for storage
- €0.02/GB excluding tax for outgoing transfer
In addition, outgoing transfer to Scaleway and Online by Scaleway servers within a region is free of charge (
nl-ams). Until the service is deployed in Paris, we even offer it from one region to another (
fr-par). It will then be billed €0.01/Go excluding tax, but we will of course notify you of this change.
In addition, incoming transfer is also completely free of charge.
