Cloud Storage

Cloud Storage is a service offered by Selectel for storing and distributing static data. The service is built on OpenStack Swift which offers extensive opportunities for integrating with various applications and sites.

Cloud Storage can be used for a variety of different purposes: storing backups, distributing static content for web apps and sites, hosting static sites, and more.

All files uploaded to storage are replicated on three independent servers, providing maximum data durability. Storage automatically scales to match growing data loads.
