Object Storage Service (OBS)

Store any quantity of data while ensuring high availability

Object Storage (OBS) is an alternative storage method that complements block storage (EVS). The storage space is relatively cost-efficient and well suited for both temporary and long-term data storage. OBS offers a high degree of data stability and monthly availability. The overall size of the OBS is scalable almost without limitations. As well as offering excellent value for money, it is also available as a standalone solution without a connected Elastic Cloud Server. For users, OBS is akin to “serverless storage as a service” that allows them to store large quantities of data with minimum effort. The data is protected against failure and can be made available for hosting static websites, storing log and media files, software depots, data lakes for big data, etc.

Object Storage Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

The Open Telekom Cloud offers an Object Storage Service that can be accessed via S3 or Swift APIs. Instead of using conventional directory structures, the OBS works with buckets in which common files such as jpgs, docs, pdfs, etc. are stored as “objects.” These individual objects can have a size of up to 5 TB.

OBS is available in three performance classes: standard, warm and cold. While the standard variant can be accessed multiple times per day, the warm storage class is suitable for monthly access, and the cold version is intended for access once per year. This allows users to optimize their OBS costs. It is easy to lose track of the amount of data stored over the course of time. Therefore, the lifecycle management solution is ideal for deleting data that has been stored for a certain period of time. Alternatively, OBS can also automatically move objects to a different storage class after a defined period.

The costs for the Object Storage Service are based on the amount of data stored, the number of times it is accessed and the storage class. Because it is billed according to a pricing scale, discounts are available for heavy usage.
