Is the Object Storage limit (750 requests per second) per user?

The documentation states

Rate limiting: Users accessing Object Storage resources are limited to 750 requests per second, per bucket.

Is the limit per user?

To accommodate a large user base, can the bucket serve more than 750 downloads per second?

@Brett_0139 This limit is per bucket and per IP address. The request limit is not something that can be increased. This means, one IP address can make 750 requests per second on each bucket.

I hope this helps!

Wait, so with ten users, each making 750 requests per second, can the bucket handle 7,500 requests per second?

UPDATE: This rate limit is now 750 requests per second per bucket across all IPs.
