Secure, Object Storage in the Cloud

Designed for the enterprise: highly available, with automatic replication

For large-scale cloud applications, object storage is far more efficient than hierarchical file systems. To this end, CenturyLink Cloud offers enterprise-grade object storage. Our cloud servers store and manage your files in a highly scalable, fault-tolerant distributed database.

Each file stored in our object storage is replicated three times, offering native high availability.


S3-compatible API and Authentication

Already have S3 code written? Re-deploy it with CenturyLink - our API supports service, bucket, and object-level operations. Our object storage is compatible with most S3 file management utilities as well; see the Resources below for recommended programs.

Secure, Key-Pair Permissions

Store collections of files in buckets that are protected with unique key-pairs. Point-and-click to assign permissions to other users as needed.

Storage for Large Objects

Store any type of file in the CenturyLink Cloud – multimedia, documents, database backups, archives, and more. Supports direct uploads for files up to 5 GB; larger objects may be stored in the CenturyLink Cloud using multipart file uploads.

High Availability

Object storage from CenturyLink stores multiple copies of your object natively, so high availability is already built-in.

Use Cases

Storage for Cloud-Native Apps

Most new applications built on web services require the flexibility and high availability of object storage. Use object storage from CenturyLink to host multimedia files and much more – all featuring high availability.

Long Term Storage of Static Data

Object storage is ideal for off-site archiving of static data. Store files for a low monthly fee, and recall them at any time using HTTP.

Secure, Managed File Transfer

Email is problematic for large file transfers, and many free utilities don’t offer the level of security and protection enterprises often need. Object storage from CenturyLink is a much more secure alternative.
