Use Cases

Based on IONOS S3 Object Storage features and benefits, the following use cases are derived that meet your business demands:
  • Data Backup and Restore: IONOS S3 Object Storage backs up critical databases and data with ease. With replication and resilience features along with versioning of buckets, the data security and access are enhanced.
  • Website Asset Storage: You can store specific website assets like images or downloadable files on Object Storage even if you do not host the whole site, helping in cost-saving and server space optimization.
  • Static Website Hosting: Utilize Object Storage for hosting static websites that load quickly as Object Storage does not require server-side processing.
  • Multimedia Asset Hosting: Storing static multimedia files like images, videos, audio, and documents, which seldom change, is easier in IONOS S3 Object Storage and does not need block storage volumes. With a dedicated URL to each object, you can easily embed or host these assets on a Static Website without needing a server.
  • Private File Storage: Safely store private data with default settings, making objects inaccessible through regular HTTP. You get the flexibility to modify object access permissions whenever needed.
  • Storing Unstructured Data: A flat data structure is ideal for storing and managing large datasets outside of traditional databases. You can customize the metadata of objects to classify and retrieve data such as images, videos, audio, documents, and Big Data more efficiently.
  • Artifact Storage: Storing and sharing development artifacts such as log data via Object Storage URL is an ideal solution for developers. Using access keys, you can safely share artifacts with intended users only. Developers can also store software applications as objects in the Object Storage.
  • Software Hosting and Distribution: Developers can upload software applications as objects in the buckets and easily provide access to their software via unique URLs, making it a go-to solution for hosting and distributing software.
  • Periodic Data Retention: For periodic logs that need to be accessed only for a certain period and removed after a specific duration, Object Storage Lifecycle Rules make it possible to retain data and delete data objects on the specified data expiration date; thus it is ideal for periodic data storage.
