Linode Object Storage is here!

Linode Object Storage has arrived! We built Linode Object Storage to make it easier and more affordable for developers to manage unstructured data such as content assets, as well as sophisticated and data-intensive storage challenges around artificial intelligence and machine learning.

For examples, instructions, and guidance, check out our documentation:

Linode Object Storage is S3-compatible, highly available, and easily scalable storage for any of your backup, big data and data archiving needs. There's no need to have or use a Linode virtual machine to benefit from storing your files or expanding your capacity. It's currently available in our Newark data center and will roll out to our remaining data centers starting in the months to come.

Plans start at $5/mo for 250GB, are limited to 1TB in outbound transfer and up to 100,000 objects, and scale up to 10TB.

BONUS: New customers can sign up with a $20 credit towards the first few months of service with the code OBJECT20.

Each Object Storage key pair on your Linode account has complete access to all of the buckets on your account.

Are per bucket permissions on the roadmap?

I quickly enabled object storage, and very quickly disabled it after seeing this.

Are per bucket permissions on the roadmap?

This is something we're looking into, but I don't have anything specific on if/when it would be available. I definitely see how it would be beneficial.

Would it be useful to be able to make keys that only work in one cluster (i.e. us-east-1) but can access all buckets there? What if bucket-level permissions were added, but could only be used through or the Linode API? I am aware that the ideal is that you could create a keypair that only has access to one bucket, I'm just trying to gauge the value in alternatives that could live alongside that.

I'd guess you'll be bringing this to European nodes at some point?! Are you able to share any brand details of a timeline?
