Object storage in Germany
plusserver object storage exclusively uses data centres in the Federal Republic of Germany in the various regions. The data centres’ security concepts are based on the highest industry standards. plusserver does not independently transfer data to third countries.
Highlights of object storage
- Software development kits for many programming languages
- Objects can be made available right on the Internet
- Ideal for stateless containers
- Virtually infinite scaling
- Attractive price

Users upload their files via http(s) via an S3-compatible API or via the web interface and manage their files in the same way. This works for all types of files.
- Offsite backup
- Media archive
- Provisioning with static web content
- Permanent storage for stateless computing
- Acquisition of IoT sensor data
- Big data analytics

What is object storage?
Unlike file storage or block storage, files are not stored hierarchically or in blocks. They are instead stored in a flat structure as objects in a large storage pool. They are also provided with metadata and an ID. Applications can then use this ID to request the relevant object. Metadata can be defined as you wish; for example, the type of application to which the object is linked, the degree of data protection, the instruction that the relevant object will be replicated to another site or other locations, when the object will be moved to a different storage level or geography and when the object will be deleted.
What is S3?
S3 is now a widely used standard storage interface that emerged from AWS' storage offerings. It is based on HTTP(S) to meet the needs of a geographically dispersed infrastructure. Like HTTP(S), S3 uses the commands "Get" (for downloading) and "Put" (for uploading). Stored objects can also be retrieved directly from a user's browser. Objects (files) are stored in "buckets". These buckets do not have a folder structure but serve as an administrative instance. Using object storage thus requires at least one bucket to be created.
