Object Store GUI Clients

We tested a number of GUI clients for our object store and identified 3 good ones:

  • S3browser
  • CyberDuck
  • Gladinet
S3browser

After S3browser starts up, it will prompt you to add a new account.

In the 'Add New Account dialog', fill in the fields as follows:

  • Account Name: ObjectStore.eu (or whatever you see fit)
  • Access Key ID: Your access key, which looks like '0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef'
  • Secret Access Key: Your s3 secret, which looks like '0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef'

After you've entered these, click 'Advanced' in the bottom-left corner of the dialog.

In the pop-up dialog, tick the 'Use Amazon S3 compatible storage' box, and fill in the S3 hostname, which looks like 0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef.objectstore.eu. You can find your personal hostname in the CloudVPS Interface, on the S3 token tab.

CyberDuck

In the top dropdown box, select ’Swift (OpenStack Object Storage'. 

Then fill in the fields as follows:

Server: identity.stack.cloudvps.com
Port: 443
Username: Your Objectstore Project/Tenant ID and username, separated by a colon (:). Both can be found in the Objectstore order/delivery email. E.g: 69ee4b34372d7904a94a8d324abcd64f9:objectstore@yourdomain.com

After the first time login you are asked for the Secret Key.

The Secret Key is your Objectstore password which can be found in the Objectstore order/delivery email.

Click Login to connect with the CloudVPS Objectstore.

Gladinet

In the Gladinet Management Console, select "Attach Cloud Storage".

As the storage service, select "OpenStack Swift KeyStone". For the Virtual Directory, fill in a name for your account, e.g. 'ObjectStore.eu'. Then click 'Next'.

In the second step of the wizard, fill in the fields as follows:

  • User Name: Your object store user name
  • Password: The object store password
  • Container Name: The name of the container you wish to use.
  • Access Point: "https://identity.stack.cloudvps.com/v2.0/tokens"
