Object Storage

An S3 compatible Object Storage provided from various Cloud Service Providers.

Getting an S3 compatible Object Storage bucket is as simple as specifying a Kubernetes object called ObjectBucket. A few seconds later you get access to a freshly provisioned Object Storage bucket, with the credentials to access it available in a Kubernetes Secret.

This allows you to specify the need of a S3 compatible Object Storage bucket directly together with your application deployment.

The user documentation is available under docs.appcat.ch.
