Object Storage

Structure for unstructured data.

Archive, manage, and serve large amounts of unstructured data with ease and cost-effectiveness. Based on OpenStack Swift, SoftLayer object storage provides a robust, highly scalable object-based storage solution—ideal for storing static data such as virtual machine images, media, and email archives. With pay-as-you-go pricing, built-in SFTP, full integration with our content delivery network, and the ability to store, retrieve, and leverage data the way you want to courtesy of SoftLayer engineered tagging and search capabilities, you can add the capacity you need, when you need it, and access it however you’d like.


Infinite Scalability

Scale how, when, and where needed with practically infinite capacity, pay-as-you-go pricing, CDN integration, and full access and control via RESTful API, customer portal, and mobile applications.

High Availability

Objects are kept safe and accessible by writing data multiple times per cluster (with auto-healing capabilities in case of drive failure) on storage clusters in North America, Europe, and Asia, all connected via private network.

Advanced Control

Quickly access and manage data with powerful tagging, search, and indexing capabilities, or intelligent management rules to dynamically route data to the right storage system.
