IONOS S3 Object Storage features

Secure data centers

IONOS Cloud offers maximum security thanks to encrypted, redundant data storage. IONOS S3 Object Storage is available in our highly secure European data centres.

High reliability

For maximum reliability, IONOS Cloud runs your IONOS S3 Object Storage in a highly available setup and backs up your data with local replication. You also have the option to choose georedundant data storage. There’s a charge for primary and georedundant storage usage.

S3 Object Lock for long-term storage

Once an object has been stored, S3 Object Lock protects it from being deleted, modified or overwritten – for years if required. You configure the retention periods according to your needs. If a new version of the same file is uploaded, the system automatically creates an additional version of the document. In this way, S3 Object Lock makes your data auditable and meets the legal WORM ("Write Once Read Many") requirements for long-term data storage.

Individual access protection

You control who accesses your IONOS S3 Object Storage. You can define access rights individually using access control lists, ensuring that data security is maintained at all times.

Fast setup

Quickly and easily integrate IONOS S3 Object Storage into your IT infrastructure by using our IONOS S3 Object Storage API, Compute Engine's Data Center Designer, third-party SDKs, or an S3-compatible client to configure your S3 buckets or transfer your storage objects to the cloud.

1 TB = 1.024 GB | Incoming traffic to any kind of VM (virtual machine) instance such as Compute Engine or Cubes as well as IONOS S3 Object Storage is always free of charge. Tiered pricing is applied to all outgoing traffic (accumulated from VM instances and IONOS S3 Object Storage), and the total amount is listed on the invoice. For outgoing VM traffic, the following definitions apply:

  1. Local traffic is traffic between VMs exchanged within the same IONOS Cloud data centre. This applies to traffic via private as well as public networks.
  2. Regional traffic is VM traffic between IONOS Cloud data centres within the same region (Germany: Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Berlin or the US: Las Vegas, Piscataway) via public networks. VM traffic between IONOS Cloud data centres in different regions is recorded as public traffic. IONOS Cloud operates various IONOS S3 Object Storage at different locations. For traffic from a VM to an IONOS S3 Object Storage, the definitions of local, regional and public traffic apply in the recording of network costs. The traffic from a VM to an IONOS S3 Object Storage within the same data centre is recorded as local traffic. Traffic from a VM to an IONOS S3 Object Storage within the same region but between different data centres is considered regional traffic. Traffic from a VM to an IONOS S3 Object Storage in a data centre in another region is charged as public traffic. Outgoing traffic from an IONOS S3 Object Storage is always charged as public traffic and the definitions of local and regional traffic do not apply, even when this traffic is addressed to another IONOS S3 Object Storage in a different data centre, or to a VM instance independent of its deployment location. | All prices for IONOS Cloud [Compute Engine, IONOS S3 Object Storage, Managed Kubernetes, Backup-as-a-Service, Private Cloud] are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax.
