Table 1 OBS Console functions



Basic bucket operations

Allow you to create and delete buckets of different storage classes in specified regions (service areas), as well as change bucket storage classes.

Basic object operations

Allow you to manage objects, including uploads, multipart uploads, downloads, storage class change, restore of Cold objects, and deletion.

Server-side encryption

Encrypts data on servers to enhance security of data stored on OBS.

Object metadata

Allows you to set properties for objects.


  • Cloud Eye can monitor the following OBS metrics:

    • Download Traffic

    • Upload Traffic

    • GET Requests

    • PUT Requests

    • First Byte Download Delay

    • 4xx Errors

    • 5xx Errors


With Cloud Trace Service (CTS), you can record data operations associated with OBS for later query, audit, and backtrack operations.

Fragment management

Manages and clears fragments generated due to object upload failures.


Stores multiple versions of an object in the same bucket.


Logs bucket access requests for analysis and auditing.

Event notification

Allows you to receive messages and emails from OBS.

Permission control

Controls OBS access permissions through IAM policies, bucket/object policies, and bucket/object access control lists (ACLs).

Lifecycle management

Allows you to configure lifecycle rules to periodically expire and delete objects or transition objects between storage classes.

Cross-region replication

Implements object replication across regions under the same account. By configuring cross-region replication rules, you can enable OBS to automatically and asynchronously copy data from a source bucket to a destination bucket in another region.

Therefore, cross-region replication provides the capability for data disaster recovery across regions, catering to your needs for off-site data backup.


Identifies and classifies buckets in OBS.

Static website hosting

Supports the hosting of static website content in buckets, and supports redirection of bucket access requests to specific hosts.

User-defined domain name configuration

Binds your website domain names to bucket domain names. This function applies to the following scenario: migrating files from a website to OBS without modifying the code of the web page, and keeping the link of the website unchanged.

URL validation

Provides URL validation to prevent object links of OBS from being stolen by other websites.

Cross origin resource sharing (CORS)

Allows a web client in one origin to interact with resources in another one. CORS is a browser-standard mechanism defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). For general web page requests, website scripts and contents in one origin cannot interact with those in another because of Same Origin Policies (SOPs).

Requester pays

Lets the requester pay for data transfer and API calls associated with accessing resources in the bucket and you (the bucket owner) pay for only data storage in the bucket.
