Creating a Bucket
This section describes how to create a bucket on OBS Console. A bucket is a container that stores objects in OBS. Before you store data in OBS, you need to create buckets.
On OBS Console, an account can have 100 buckets.
- In the upper right corner of the OBS Console homepage, click Create Bucket. The Create Bucket dialog box is displayed. See Figure 1.
- Set Region and Storage Class, and then enter a name for the bucket.
- Once a bucket is created, you cannot change the name of it. Make sure that the bucket name you set is appropriate.
- When a URL is used to access a bucket, the bucket name will become a part of the URL. According to the DNS rule, URLs do not support uppercase letters and cannot be used to access a bucket whose name contains uppercase letters. Therefore, a bucket name can contain only lowercase letters, digits, periods (.), and hyphens (-). For example, if you attempt to access bucket MyBucket using the URL, bucket mybucket will be accessed instead, causing an access error.
- Bucket policy: You can select the Private, Public Read, or Public Read and Write policy for a bucket.
- Direct reading of data in the Archive storage class: When directly reading is enabled, you can directly download objects from the Archive storage class without restoring them in advance. Direct reading is a billable function. For details, see Product Pricing Details.
- Tags: Tags are used to identify and classify OBS buckets. Each tag has only one pair of key-value. Each tag is represented by one key-value pair. For more information, see Tag Overview.
