Container Operations

Containers resemble Amazon S3 buckets, but unlike S3 buckets, containers can be used to store any type of data. Containers are created and managed either from the dashboard or by using the RESTful Containers Management API [Beta]. You can also perform some container operations through the Simple-Object Web API:

  • GET Service — lists the containers that are visible to the user who sent the request, according to its tenant.

  • GET Container — returns the objects that are stored in the data container.

  • HEAD Container — checks whether a container exists and the user has permission to access it.

You can find examples of Simple Object Web-API container-operation requests in the Working with Data Containers tutorial.
