Tencent Cloud Object Storage (COS) is a distributed storage service offered by Tencent Cloud for enterprises and individual developers to store huge amounts of data. Users can store and process your massive data in batch through the Internet at any time. As a professional data storage service, Tencent COS features high scalability, low cost, reliability and security. You can use the console, API and SDK to connect to Tencent COS for real-time storage and management of your business data.
COS enables redundant storage of data across multiple architectures and devices and supports remote disaster recovery and resource isolation to provide up to 99.999999999% data persistence for each object, providing better data persistence than other storage architectures.
Hotlink protection is supported to block malicious access. Data transmission can be encrypted with SSL technology to control the read/write permission of each file. Defense systems can effectively defend against DDoS and CC attacks to ensure your business operates normally.
There is no need for the traditional purchase, deployment and OPS, or to pay to reserve storage space in advance. The service is used as needed, and billed based on use. Lifecycle management can be used to identify cold data to further reduce costs.
COS has a detailed RESTful API manual and a wide variety of SDK connection tools. There is also a seamless migration tool to quickly migrate your business into the cloud, helping you avoid high migration and connection costs.
COS can be integrated with other Tencent Cloud products, including CDN acceleration, Cloud Image processing, audio/video transcoding, file preview and other components, to provide an integrated solution for storage and processing. In addition, COS can be used as a data pool for big data computing and provide the data source for big data analysis and computing.
Whether it's a mobile app, a website or an HTML5 page, COS provides SDKs written in various languages based on application types for seamless access. In case of business or user-generated content (UGC) peaks, COS scales automatically in accordance with the amounts of requests and traffic to cope with massive business access. As UGC typically has time-dimensional access characteristics, COS can stratify cold and hot data to use standard storage for hot data and low-frequency storage for cold data. Together with the lifecycle rule configuration and storage type conversion, COS reduces storage costs.
Web services generally separate frequently-changed resources from infrequently-changed resources in dynamic webpages according to a particular rule. Static resources refer to unstructured data resources that remain unchanged for a long time.
COS Standard allows static resources to be stored and distributed so as to relieve the pressure on resource servers. With infinite capacity and highly frequent read/write capabilities, the scalability and reliability of static resources are assured. Users can host the static content (including audio/video files and images) of a website in COS Standard and distribute content using Tencent Cloud CDN. Using the capacity of Tencent Cloud CDN global acceleration nodes, users can distribute hot files to edge nodes ahead of time to minimize access latency.
COS can be used as a data source for big data analysis regardless of the type of data (medical or financial data, or multimedia files such as images, audio and video).
COS supports the storage of exabytes of unconstructed data, providing high availability, high reliability, high security and high scalability. Analysis apps can be rapidly built and deployed using the Tencent Cloud Big Data Suite. After your high performance computing need is met, you can archive the data to reduce service costs and store the data long term.
COS is billed on a postpaid basis according to actual usage. There is no minimum charge.
