Lumen Network Storage can help your organization generate storage in your network as data creation and consumption shifts from core data centers to the cloud and the edge.
Object Tier is deployed in a series of "regions" which include data centers for each Lumen Network Storage geography (view a full list of available regions). Object Tier uses "buckets" to hold "objects." Buckets are flat (no hierarchy) and can contain an unlimited number of objects and unlimited amount of storage. Object Tier "users" have an "access key ID" and "secret access key" which act as the user's username and password for accessing storage.
Object Tier is for key-value data. It is a schema-less repository that can store large objects (up to 5 TB) and is perfect for archive data, Microsoft Office documents, and more.
Data stored in an Object Tier region is stored in a highly available, fault-tolerant way. When data is stored, it is written to a data center where it is stored in an industry standard, highly redundant method. Data is also replicated to an additional data center in the same region where it is again stored using the same redundant method. This combination of redundancy and replication yields a robust, always-on Object Tier solution.
Bucket administrators can use the Lumen Network Storage portal to create users, create buckets, and secure buckets. Object users and developers have their choice of numerous best-of-breed tools for interfacing with objects.
No, the Object Tier API for retrieving bucket lists only returns buckets where the tenant is the owner. Users within the tenant can use the Network Storage portal to view buckets across all users within their respective tenant.
Once you have configured a Network Storage node, it must connect to the bare metal server. The below articles contain steps and terminal commands necessary to mount the node to the server.
