HOW CLOUD FILES WORK

UPLOAD FILES TO THE CLOUD

Store and manage unlimited files using our online control panel, desktop software, or programmatically via the API.

ONLY PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE

Unlike traditional storage solutions, there's nothing to buy and no upfront costs for cloud storage. You'll pay only for the file storage space and outgoing bandwidth that you actually use.

KEEP DATA PRIVATE OR SHARE IT PUBLICLY – YOUR CHOICE

Each container that you create for your files can be marked as either private or public. (See "Public or Private" below.)

PUBLIC OR PRIVATE CLOUD FILES

PUBLIC CONTAINERS ON CLOUD FILES

In public containers, your media files receive a web-ready URL that can be shared with anyone. Public files are served blazingly fast too, thanks to Cloud Files integration with the Akamai Content Delivery Network.

PRIVATE CONTAINERS ON CLOUD FILES

With private containers, all traffic between your application and Cloud Files uses SSL to establish a secure, encrypted channel. This ensures that any data (usernames, passwords, and content) cannot be intercepted and read by a third party.

CLOUD FILES IS BUILT WITH OPENSTACK

OpenStack is an open source, collaborative software project among dozens of big players and hundreds of developers in the Cloud Computing space. The mission of the OpenStack community is to productize a ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform.

The Cloud Files development team created and contributed the underlying source code that has become OpenStack Object Storage software, which is the underlying software currently powering Cloud Files.

THE TECHNOLOGIES BEHIND CLOUD FILES

Speed, simplicity and unlimited cloud storage.

High Speeds Cloud Files provides unlimited online storage on demand. Easily upload, store and transfer files and digital media. And, in an industry first, you can deliver that content to your users at high speeds over Akamai's Content Delivery Network (CDN).

CLOUD FILES STORAGE TECHNOLOGY

Files can be uploaded to Cloud Files in one of three ways:

  • Through our online control panel
  • Via the Cloud Files API, or
  • Via software third parties from the desktop and mobile devices like the iPhone or Android phones.

Inside the Cloud Files datacentre, intelligent software makes multiple copies of your data on at least three different devices in two distinct zones of the datacentre. (Each datacentre zone uses separate power and network connections).

CLOUD FILES CDN TECHNOLOGY

The files you elect to be public are shared out over a content distribution network with locations all over the world. The first time your content is served to a worldwide user (one in Hong Kong, for example), a copy of the content will be stored in cache on the edge servers in that location.

The next time the content is requested, its pulled directly from the cached copy on the edge servers, dramatically reducing delivery time. In this way, the CDN technology integrated into Cloud Files gives your content world-wide presence.
