Object Storage

Any Good Object Storage (s3 compatible) to recommend?
I have tried Digital Ocean. The only down side is they have minimal charge every month.

    Do you know where is their datacenter?

  • B2 is intriguing. But they are not S3 compatible

  • Just in case, a VPS running Minio it's something S3 compatible.

    It isn't though, the pricing isn't great.

    $11/month per 1TB of traffic, never mind storage cost.

    Another shoutout for Minio. Nifty little S3 compatible software.

    And yes, there is traffic charge for bandwidth within same datacenter.

    DO Spaces is $10/TB and $20/TB for storage. For object storage, OVH and DO are "basically free" particularly if you put them behind Cloudflare or BunnyCDN. You can't really put that together with similar quality and similar pricing on your own without some serious scale that is beyond LET's price range.

    I run a ton of static marketing sites out of OVH and for my time commitment is pretty cost effective. YMMV.

    They are open stack. I moved here from S3, and significantly decreased my bills. Yep, I had to rewrite code from S3 to OpenStack.

    Overall, I'd say AWS S3 is better, faster, and has more features, tools. OVH is cheap, but lack of tools, and UI sucks.

    I'm waiting for DO availability in Germany, will migrate.

  • I have not used it but DreamHost offers S3-compatible storage.

    And of course, how can we forget...

    For LET support, please visit the support desk.

  • Also note, OVH like every OpenStack, does not support Versioning. For example, you store backups in S3 and set versioning for 1 month. And S3 will automatically delete older archives. Very useful, unfortunately, OVH does not support it.

    I think OVH object storage is also S3-compatible. Openstack Swift supports S3 protocol.

    Not by default and OVH doesn't anymore, they used to though as far as I know.

    Indeed, OpenStack Swift has S3-compatible API, though it probably can be disabled.

    Just curious to understand what the scenarios and needs of all of you who are using object storage:

    • are you storing small or large files?
    • long term or short term?
    • what kind of files do you store?
    • private or public?
    • write/read speed does matter or you prefer lower cost? (SSD vs. SATA)?
    • why do you prefer an object storage instead of other storage methods?

    Thanks :)

    Both.

    • long term or short term?

    Long term usage. Most stuff gets updated 1-2 times a year.

    • what kind of files do you store?

    Static sites + assets with a CDN in front of it.

    • private or public?

    Public. If it was private, I'd be using a $5/TB dacentec server or whatever.

    • write/read speed does matter or you prefer lower cost? (SSD vs. SATA)?

    You'd need to match DO Spaces and OVH Object storage performance. Or don't bother.

    Exactly. No administration overhead at all, just upload the files and you can be assured that they won't go anywhere and will still be accessible after x amount of time.

    Please find me a CDN that caches rarely viewed content for 90+ days and charges $.02 or less per GB.

    Or, y'know, you can accept not everyone is going to pay for a CDN on top of the object store.

    This actually seems like the most fun project in relation to object storage. I've been wanting to do it too, just to do it. Minio is kind of great in that it leaves the reliability to you, and provides one hell of an object store on top of it.

    And if the origin server is down because you forgot to maintain it or check if it was up? :P I'm that lazy.

    Minio is great, I just can never come up with a cheaper setup than OVH / DO Spaces with it and acceptable performance.

    BunnyCDN.

    Max cache is 1 year, you can set it in the control panel.

    1c/GB for premium, or 0.5c/GB for volume tier (fewer POPs).

    Not object storage, but I've got that set up in front of OVH storage and it works beautifully

    Humor me and try to actually do that then don't view the file for 90 days. I've not seen something go unviewed and stay on BunnyCDN longer than 30 days to be 100% honest.

    But yes, I use BunnyCDN and Cloudflare to do the same thing. :p

    If it hasn't been needed in 3 months, why shouldn't it be relegated to "lukewarm" storage?

    Cache-Control means how long the maximum time a file can stay cached before needing a revalidation from the origin server for changes. The actual time a file stays cached depends on how often it gets accessed. If a file is not accessed within X days (14 in our case) or if the system needs to make space for more popular files it will get deleted from cache. I make sure we have as much space as possible on all nodes, which results in currently around a 98.5% global hit rate.

    No. They have a limit for obtaining auth tokens though, which, if you are using a correctly written application (for uploading files), won't affect you.
