Archiving to C14 Cold Storage's Glacier Class
Object Storage is natively interoperable with most solutions on the market by being 100% compatible with the S3 protocol. Our Object Storage supports two storage classes: the Standard class with Object Storage and the Glacier class with C14 Cold Storage to archive your data. You can easily manage your data with solutions such as Cyberduck on macOS, S3cmd in command line, Rclone to synchronize files, Duplicity for your Dedibox backups, or Nextcloud for your personal backups.
We use a strong erasure coding 6+3 to protect your data stored with Object Storage. Each object is split into six data fragments and adds three parity fragments to ensure the integrity of your objects. This mechanism prevents any impact on your data in the event of an incident when writing, storing or restoring your objects. In addition, Object Storage benefits from features such as access control lists (ACL), or private mode restriction of your buckets and objects, so you can keep control of your assets. In addition, your data archived through C14 Cold Storage’s Glacier class is stored in an ultra-secure databunker located 25 meters underground in Paris.
You get 75GB of free storage and external outgoing transfer on both Object Storage and C14 Cold Storage every month! The price charged above these 75 GB is €0.01/GB/month for Object Storage, per volume stored or transferred. In addition, transfer to and from other Scaleway products in the same region are completely free! You also don’t have any fees per API or console request. Your invoice is clear and without surprises.
C14 Cold Storage comes with full support of the S3 lifecycle management features. Lifecyle allows you to setup transition rules for your objects, to archive them from the Object Storage Standard class to the C14 Cold Storage’s Glacier class when you no longer need to frequently access them. It also allows you to define expiration rules, so you can schedule to delete your objects at a given time after their upload.
When you decide to archive your data, you only pay for the volume stored at 0.002€/GB/month. Indeed, the data transfer from the Object Storage’s Standard class to the C14 Cold Storage’s Glacier class is completely free of charge. This allows you to archive your data at a five-time cheaper price. Similar to archiving, data recovering from C14 Cold Storage’s Glacier class to Object Storage’s Standard class is free of charge.
You are not limited by the size of your files with Object Storage! You can upload your largest files with the S3 Multipart upload feature. Multipart upload allows you to upload an object into chunks. So if one chunk fails to upload because of a network interruption, you can re-upload it without affecting the other ones already uploaded, saving you time. With Object Storage, your large files are thus uploaded in a limit of 1000 chunks per upload and 5TB per object.
You can choose to manage your objects by API request or directly via the Scaleway Console. Our teams have designed a user-friendly interface with a Drag & Drop system, so you can easily manage your buckets in a few clicks! Through the Scaleway Console, you can choose to configure your objects and buckets in public or private mode, get an HTTPS link for your public files, add metadata or tags to them, rename them, or archive them to the Glacier class.
We ensure your services are always up and running. Our technical assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer all your questions and to assist you.

Popular Use Cases for Object Storage
Object Storage was designed to store very large amounts of unstructured data, i.e. data accessible with a unique ID and not through a complex structure with hierarchical folders. This structure allows you to access easily and very quickly all your static content such as photos, videos, text files, HTML and CSS web pages, etc. Access to your objects and their customizable metadata is performed using a standard HTTP API, meaning you can choose to access and share your files easily with a public URL!
The security of your data and the protection of your business are our major concern. Besides our demanding intervention processes, we use the most advanced parity mechanisms on the market to ensure the high availability of your data. Indeed, we store and distribute your data, stored as objects, on several disks of different machines. If any part of a file is damaged or missing, we can recover it very easily from a healthy part of the cluster. You can thus safely store all your logs and backups. In addition, you can define lifecycle rules for your files in order to archive them into the Glacier class or delete them after a given time.
Simplify your big data projects with unlimited storage capacity. Our Object Storage solution allows you to analyze very large amounts of data, train your most complex calculation models, or even optimize your streaming platforms, thanks to a scalable and cost-effective storage. Object Storage is particularly compatible with our IoT Hub solution! Thanks to the IoT Routes providing a gateway between cloud services and your IoT Hub, you can use Object Storage to store your largest messages in an S3-compatible object storage bucket.

Object Storage supports multipart upload. We recommend uploading by chunks, in a limit of 1000 chunks per upload and 5TB per object.
You can access your files via HTTPS by creating a public link from the control panel. Click on the file name and enable the public link by clicking on the corresponding button.
In order to make an object public, click on Visibility in the drop-down menu, set it to Public and save the setting.
If you upload a file by using the CLI, you can make it public by using the parameter:
Note: You can only configure the visibility (public or private) of one object at a time. It is not possible to perform this action on an entire bucket, on which visibility is defined by default as private. Allowing public visibility on a bucket only allows the viewing of a list of objects that are stored in the bucket.
The object storage service was not designed to be used as a CDN: it is not fine-tuned for this kind of usage. We do not recommend it.
You can still use Object Storage as a backend for a CDN. All you need is to put a caching layer in front of it.
