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.

Object Storage is the first storage brick of the Scaleway cloud ecosystem. It allows developers to host files regardless of their number, size or organization and to distribute them instantly, anywhere in the world. The service is currently available in our Amsterdam datacenter (nl-ams) and is in Paris (fr-par) since March 19th, 2019.

Upload your first data is very easy, you just have to connect to the new Scaleway console.

Once your bucket is created, drop your files to upload them.

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.

S3 API Compatibility

We designed the product to be compatible with S3 API, considered as a reference in the object storage market. You can therefore use Object Storage with most data management tools through the s3.fr-par.scw.cloud and s3.nl-ams.scw.cloud endpoints. To help you get started, we came up with plenty of tutorials.
