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.
