Get started with OORT Storage

You can get started with OORT Storage by working with buckets and objects.

An object is a file and any metadata that describes that file.

A bucket is a container for objects.

To store an object on OORT Storage, you create a bucket and then upload the object to the bucket. Once the object is in the bucket, you can open and download it. You can delete an object or a bucket if you don't need it anymore.


OORT Storage offers a flexible pricing model that caters to users with varying storage and data egress needs.

Free Tier | Always Free

To get started, users can sign up for a free trial with no time limit and receive 20GB of standard data storage, 1TB of archive storage, and 5GB of data egress per month for free.


If users require more storage or data egress, they can easily upgrade to pay-as-you-go rates. With pay-as-you-go, users will receive a monthly bill and use OORT credits to pay for services. Any outstanding balance will be charged to the credit card on record. The credits will be automatically deducted from the user's account to pay for their monthly bills once the invoice is issued, providing a hassle-free payment process.

Storage providers

OORT's infrastructure employs an innovative three-tier node architecture that facilitates efficient and reliable hot and cold data services.

The three tiers are:

  • Super Nodes: These nodes are comprised of both public and private cloud servers, and provide support for compute and database services. Super Nodes are designed to offer scalable and high-performance computing resources for mission-critical workloads that require high availability and fast response times.

  • Edge Nodes: These nodes are small devices with storage and compute capabilities that are designed for use in homes and offices. Edge nodes support storage services, and are specifically engineered to accelerate and scale OORT's data services. Edge Nodes are optimized for low-latency and high-throughput data transfer, making them an ideal choice for distributed data storage, processing and analytics.

  • Backup Nodes: These nodes are deployed globally and utilize the storage capacity of popular decentralized storage networks such as Filecoin, Storj, Crust, and Arweave. All user data stored on OORT is backed up by these nodes, ensuring data durability and resilience against data loss due to hardware or network failures. OORT's integration with multiple decentralized storage networks ensures that user data is securely stored and easily accessible from anywhere in the world.
