Working with Object Storage

IONOS S3 Object Storage provides a range of access options, including a web console, desktop applications, CLI tools, and an option to develop your application using API and SDKs.

Web console

In the DCD, go to Menu > Storage > IONOS S3 Object Storage to access IONOS S3 Object Storage via the web console. Here you can manage buckets, and objects, set access controls, and much more. To set up Object Storage, see Enable Object Storage access.

GUI tools

  • Cyberduck: An open-source GUI client supporting object storage among other protocols, presenting storage objects as local files for easy browsing, uploading, and downloading.

  • S3 Browser: A freeware Windows client for Object Storage, providing an easy way to manage buckets and objects, including file permissions and access control lists, through a visual interface.

CLI tools

You can access the IONOS S3 Object Storage via the following CLI tools:

  • AWS CLI: Unique in offering a wide range of commands for the comprehensive management of buckets and objects which is ideal for scripting and automation.

  • S3cmd: A CLI tool offering direct, scriptable control over object storage buckets and objects. However, it lacks certain features like versioning and replication management.

  • rclone: A CLI program for syncing files between local and cloud storage, distinguishing itself with powerful synchronization capabilities, specifically useful when handling large data quantities and complex sync setups.

API and SDKs

Being S3 compatible means you can use standard S3 API calls and SDKs with our storage solution. For more information, see IONOS S3 Object Storage API Reference.
