Storing objects with Object Storage and Transmit 5
Transmit 5 - Overview
Object Storage allows you to store any kind of object (documents, images, videos, etc.) and retrieve them at a later time from anywhere.
For instance, you can store images and they will be accessible using HTTPS. You can use the control panel to manage your storage. Some tools exist to interact with Object Storage.
You may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:
- you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
- you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
- You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
- You have generated your API key
