Today, we are formally introducing our Managed Object Storage (MOS) service. 

As there are several object storage services available today, we didn’t tread into this offering lightly. Deft’s MOS is the result of extensive research and development, feedback from customers and partners, and a thorough analysis of market requirements. We realized there is a need, from our ecosystem, to provide object storage the Deft way.

Managed Object Storage basics  

  • MOS stores data as objects within buckets.  
  • An object consists of a file and optionally any metadata that describes that file.  
  • Before you can store data in MOS, you must create a bucket.  
  • You can create as many buckets as necessary for your configuration.  
  • For each bucket, you can control access to it (who can create, delete, and list objects in the bucket/view access logs for it and its objects).  
  • Buckets, by default, are private and can be made publicly accessible as needed.  
  • To store an object in MOS, you upload the file you want to store to a bucket.  
  • When you upload a file, you can set permissions on the object, including public or private access, as well as any metadata associated with the file.
