Fast, Scalable Object Storage in the Cloud

Scalable Cloud Object Storage

Cloud Files provides online object storage for files and media, delivering them globally at blazing speeds over a worldwide content delivery network (CDN). You can store as many files as you want—even very large files.

Our tightly integrated and easy-to-use CDN can distribute your public content—images, video, audio, and even HTML, JavaScript, and cascading style sheets—to hundreds of edge locations worldwide, so it’s close to your users. Less distance to travel means your users get your content faster.

Third Party Integration

Cloud Files integrates with a variety of 3rd party tools built for object storage, such as Cyberduck, Jungle Disk, and FireUploader.

Static Website Hosting

Cloud Files is perfect for non-dynamic web hosting. Host static websites such as blogs, brochure sites, and small company sites entirely from Cloud Files with a global CDN


When you enable a container for CDN, your media files receive a web-ready URL that you can share with anyone. CDN accelerates the speed in which your content is delivered by caching files locally to your users.

Private Containers

Security of your files is a top priority, which is why all traffic between your application and Cloud Files uses SSL to establish a secure, encrypted channel. You have full control over sharing your files publicly or keeping them private.

Take advantage of advance features like:  temporary URLs that provide access to your Cloud Files objects for a specified period of time and Large files upload for HD movies, or backups, in multiple file segments while still being able to download as a single file.
