UMIACS Object Store

A object store is a simple web based storage solution focused on reliability, scalability and security. It is best suited for public content storage/distribution, archiving data or secure data sharing between users. Our Object Storage can be used through the web interface, the command line UMobj utilities, third-party graphical clients, and even programmatically using many popular programming languages. We support a subset of the Amazon Simple Storage Services (S3) API, built around a technology called Ceph.

Getting Started

UMIACS users are initially allocated 50GB of storage and faculty 500GB. To get started you just need to log in to create your account and you will be redirected to the initial help page. You can find the link from our https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu site as "OBJbox Object Store".
