Guides - Create a Bucket
S3-compatible Linode Object Storage makes it easy and more affordable to manage unstructured data such as content assets, as well as sophisticated and data-intensive storage challenges around artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The Cloud Manager provides a web interface for creating buckets. To create a bucket:
If you have not already, log into the Linode Cloud Manager.
Click the Object Storage link in the sidebar, and then click Add a Bucket.
If you have not created an access key or a bucket before, you are prompted to enable Object Storage.
The Create a Bucket menu appears.
Add a label for the bucket. See the Bucket Name section for rules on naming the bucket.
