Creating an Object Storage Bucket in Oracle Cloud

In Oracle Cloud, object storage is used to store and manage data as objects, providing a reliable, secure and scalable service. OCI Object storage uses "buckets" as a method of organizing the objects (or files). Ultimately, you can think of a bucket as a container that stores -ideally related- objects within an Oracle Cloud compartment within a namespace. A bucket can only be associated to a single compartment and it's possible to set policies against the compartment & bucket which define the actions/permissions that a user or group have to manipulate the bucket and the objects in the bucket. In this post, I will explain how you can very easily create a object storage bucket in Oracle Cloud.

Creating a Compartment in Oracle Cloud

In Oracle Cloud, compartments are used to implement a degree of organization to your provisioned resources. They can also help you to more easily control access to your nicely organized resources. Assuming you are organizing things well, Compartments should be a collection provisioned resources that are related to one another and might typically be accessed/controlled by the same kind of user. In doing so permissions can be given to specific user groups to access and manage a compartment by an administrator. In this post, I will explain how you can very easily create a compartment in Oracle Cloud.
