The secure next-generation storage platform
Cloud Storage from UKCloud is a secure and highly adaptable storage service designed to address a wide variety of use cases. As an object storage platform, it is natively optimised for cloud storage in terms of scale, resilience and accessibility.
What the service can help you achieve
Primary storage for cloud native applications
Integrate Cloud Storage into your cloud-native/mobile applications using S3 API to support next-gen web, mobile and cloud applications.
Utilise a low-cost, high capacity UKCloud storage solution as a natural repository for your backup and archive data, which fully supports native S3 connectors.
Move infrequently accessed files off expensive primary storage
Typically 80% of files on primary storage are inactive. Cloud storage allows organisations to reclaim capacity on expensive T1/T2 storage, and enables automation with policy based file movement.
