    OBS uses storage policies to optimize storage management efficiency.

Ease-to-Manage Policies

  • OBS APIs and OBS Console are available for you to manage storage policies, and the following data management functions are supported:

    Data lifecycle management: OBS provides programming and policies to set a lifecycle for objects. Therefore, expired data can be batch deleted automatically. If the versioning function is enabled, you can configure a lifecycle policy to delete outdated versions of objects. 
    Event notification: When operations in OBS such as uploading and deleting objects trigger preset conditions, the SMN service can push reliable, extensible, and massive notification messages to subscribers through emails and text messages over HTTP or HTTPS. This simplifies the system coupling.
    Static website hosting: Bucket policies can be configured for static website hosting in OBS. A static website contains only static content (such as HTML) or client scripts.
