Reliable and secure object storage

Transition to lower-cost classes easily

Configure your data with Object Lifecycle Management (OLM) to automatically transition to lower-cost storage classes when it meets the criteria you specify, such as when it reaches a certain age or when you’ve stored a newer version of the data.

Multiple redundancy options

Cloud Storage has an ever-growing list of storage bucket locations where you can store your data with multiple automatic redundancy options. Whether you are optimizing for split-second response time, or creating a robust disaster recovery plan, customize where and how you store your data.

Easily transfer data to Cloud Storage

Storage Transfer Service offers a highly performant, online pathway to Cloud Storage—both with the scalability and speed you need to simplify the data transfer process. For offline data transfer our Transfer Appliance is a shippable storage server that sits in your datacenter and then ships to an ingest location where the data is uploaded to Cloud Storage. 

Archival storage you can actually use

With low latency and a consistent API across Cloud Storage, the Archive and Coldline tiers deliver cold storage you can actually use. Tap your data archived in Archive or Coldline directly from applications with low latency, comparable to the other storage classes. When it comes to archival and business continuity, Archive and Coldline change what the industry can expect from cold storage in the cloud.

Storage classes for any workload

Save costs without sacrificing performance by storing data across different storage classes. You can start with a class that matches your current use, then reconfigure for cost savings.

Standard Storage: Good for “hot” data that’s accessed frequently, including websites, streaming videos, and mobile apps.

Nearline Storage: Low cost. Good for data that can be stored for at least 30 days, including data backup and long-tail multimedia content.

Coldline Storage: Very low cost. Good for data that can be stored for at least 90 days, including disaster recovery.

Archive Storage: Lowest cost. Good for data that can be stored for at least 365 days, including regulatory archives.
