Object storage availability date?

Posted August 5, 2017 1.5k views

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.
