S3 Storage

Your cost-effective object storage in the German cloud


Power your cloud with state-of-the-art storage

Use our S3 storage for cost-effective and highly scalable object storage. Get high availability, optionally backed up with geo-redundant data storage. With object lock, you can make data read-only to prevent tampering, such as ransomware. Customers with high compliance requirements benefit from GDPR-compliant data storage in Germany.

Icon Kosten

Simple pricing model

S3 requests and data transfers are always free. Storage is billed based on usage.

Easy to use

Manage your data easily via an S3-compatible API or the intuitive web interface.

plusserver Skalierbarkeit Icon

High scalability

Scale to infinite petabytes with a hyperscale data structure.

plusserver Icon Hybrid Connector


S3-compatible storage offers the standard S3 APIs and can thus interact with other S3 storage.

Digital sovereignty

You always retain data sovereignty and your data never leaves German jurisdiction.


You can encrypt objects and buckets yourself.


S3-compatible storage provides the standard S3 APIs, allowing it to interact with other S3 storage.

Fast connectivity

Short distances through peering, especially from Germany, and fast connection to our backbone.

Object lock

Use this feature to prevent data from being modified or deleted.

Service classes

Choose from three service classes (type of storage & redundancy) by adding -mirr or -repl to the bucket name.

Use Cases

A data lake as the foundation for analytics

The Internet of Things (IoT) is dramatically increasing the amount of data available to businesses. In smart manufacturing, for example, the IoT connects machines, sensors, and products. In addition to process and product data, a large amount of unstructured data is generated about the status of a machine or system. S3 Object Storage is an excellent way to store this and other IoT data. Organizations can use it to build a data lake. The high scalability of S3 pays off here, as terabytes to petabytes of data can quickly be reached.

S3 Storage Anwendungsfall Backup

Data backup and recovery

The golden rule for backups (3-2-1 rule) is that there should be three copies of all data (one of which is the original). The copies should be on two different media. One of them must be stored off-site. S3 storage provides a cost-effective, secure, and highly scalable solution for offsite data protection. Data can be quickly restored from the object storage and with plusserver there are no traffic costs. In addition, disaster recovery strategies can be implemented with the cloud provider.

Next-gen applications need the right storage

Whether preparing legacy applications for the cloud or writing a cloud-native application, Object Storage gives developers the right data storage in the cloud with minimal effort. Regardless of the infrastructure used for development and deployment, the storage can be accessed from anywhere. S3 storage is especially well suited for mobile applications, such as collecting and processing user data generated by an application.

S3 Storage Anwendungsfall Archivierung

The safe for your valuable data

Data that is rarely or never used (cold data) still needs to be archived. Storage hardware in your own data center is expensive to purchase and operate. When capacity is exhausted, large investments (fixed costs) must be made in new systems. By moving cold storage to the cloud, you can save money in the long run. Security or compliance concerns can be quickly addressed with the plusserver offering.

S3 storage pricing

All prices quoted are for the storage class Standard an are net plus applicable taxes and duties. Prices are subject to change. Additional storage classes can be selected (Replication, Mirror) at additional cost. Traffic fair use policy: standard behavioral network usage will not be charged.

Some of our satisfied customers

Grow with our storage "Made in Germany"

Trust in the highest security and availability of your data in our certified data centers in Germany. As a founding member of Gaia-X and a BSI-C5 audited provider, we offer you future-proof cloud solutions that focus on your sovereignty and innovation.


Object Lock prevents objects from being deleted or overwritten for a specified or indefinite period of time. Objects are stored in the write once, read many (WORM) model. This prevents employees from accidentally damaging data and cybercrime such as ransomware. Storing data in the WORM model may also be part of regulatory requirements.

Optional geo-redundancy lets you back up a copy of your data from S3 object storage to a geographically remote pluserver datacenter. This is recommended for business-critical data. If the first data center fails, your data is still available at the second location.

No, you will only be charged for the amount of storage you actually use for the duration of your usage (pay-as-you-go).

With plusserver, you get the traffic for free, which makes our offer particularly attractive for large data volumes such as in the IoT environment. Zudem liegen unsere zertifizierten Rechenzentren in Deutschland und Ihre Daten verlassen zu keiner Zeit den Rechtsraum.

The object storage behind our product is virtually infinitely scalable, providing unlimited storage. In numbers, this means up to 50 million objects per bucket, up to 5 TB of object size, and up to several petabytes of total data.

Yes, the S3 service supports object encryption. This means that as an S3 storage user, you can encrypt all objects in your S3 application when you create them.
An S3 client is a piece of software for a specific operating system (e.g. MacOS, Linux, Windows) that is designed to facilitate the day-to-day use of S3 buckets. There are many S3 clients on the market, which differ in their feature set and also in their performance when creating or deleting.
