How about that object storage? Any idea when we can use it? I’m beginning to think that it’s free through October because it won’t be released until November. :-)

Release details are not yet available, though as long as you’ve subscribed to the mailing list for Object Storage, details, once available, will be sent out :-).

I know that’s kinda cryptic, though we don’t want to push it out until it’s definitely ready for everyone to use for both personal and production workloads :-).

Why announce it everywhere when there isn’t even a date or pricing information? One of those startup business tactics of sending out an announcement press release to gauge interest, then build it?

Whatever it is, I hope it has an API compatible with S3. If it does, I can use it immediately. If it doesn’t… I might just see how it shakes out first.

Magically importing from S3 would be amazing.

Very curious to know what pricing will be, especially transfer to/from DO. I’m hoping free transfer from private IPs, and $.02 per GB/month. Pretty please.

@jtittle The link you posted says:

“Sign up for early access and receive 1TB for free through October 31, 2017.”

Does that date mean anything?

I signed up for that as soon as they sent out the email in June, have heard nothing back. My guess would be a select few got access to it.
