UMIACS Object Store
An object store is a 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.
UMIACS users are initially allocated 50GB of storage. Faculty are allocated 500GB. To get started, log in and you will be redirected to the initial help page. You can also find the link from our https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu site as "OBJbox Object Store".
