What is it?

A data warehouse that you will use as:

  • A file repository with shared access of many people or servers
  • Large data archive
  • A way to quickly share resources
  • Space for static files that offload your main file system

Object storage

How does it work?

Quick start

At the Atman WAW-1 campus, in many rack servers with disk work that create the object storage system. This platform – over the Internet – provides you with a space with which you can connect via the S3 or Swift protocol.

  • STEP 1 / You receive from Atman two strings that are used for authentication: SECRET KEY and ACCESS KEY
  • STEP 2 / You choose your favorite tool that supports the S3 protocol and configure it
  • STEP 3 / You fill the space with your data

What you need to do?

  • from Atman / Agree the size of the space with Atman
  • from Atman / Receive credentials and user manual from Atman
  • on your end / Decide for yourself which tool you will use – there are many free, commercial and open-source programs on the market
  • on your end / Prepare the tool and start using the space
