Objects Overview

OORT Storage is an object store that uses unique key-values to store as many objects as you want. You store these objects in one or more buckets, and each object can be up to 100 GB in size. An object consists of the following:


The name that you assign to an object. You use the object key to retrieve the object.


The content that you are storing.

An object value can be any sequence of bytes. Objects can range in size from zero to 2 GB. For more information, see Upload Objects.


A set of name-value pairs with which you can store information regarding the object. You can assign metadata, referred to as user-defined metadata, to your objects in OORT Storage. OORT Storage also assigns system-metadata to these objects, which it uses for managing objects.
