This document summarizes practices in common application scenarios of Object Storage Service (OBS). Each practice case provides detailed solution description and operation guide, helping you easily build your storage services based on OBS.

Table 1 OBS best practices

Best Practice


Migrating Local Data to OBS

This section describes how to migrate local data from personal computers or on-premises storage servers to OBS.

Migrating Data from Third-Party Cloud Service Vendors to OBS

This section describes several migration methods that can migrate various volumes of data from third-party vendors to OBS, and provides operation procedures and guidance for each method.

Using Backup Software to Back Up Local Data to OBS

This section describes the backgrounds of backing up local data to OBS and the backup software supported by OBS. Commvault is used as an example to describe how to back up local data to OBS.

Accessing OBS over Intranet

This section describes how to access OBS from your Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs) through the internet or the HUAWEI CLOUD intranet. To optimize performance and reduce costs, it is recommended that you access OBS over the HUAWEI CLOUD intranet. ECS supports access to OBS through either Internet or the HUAWEI CLOUD intranet.

Using a User-Defined Domain Name to Host a Static Website

This section describes how to use a user-defined domain name to host static websites on OBS. You can quickly publish personal and enterprise static websites without setting up a website server.

Enterprise Data Access Control

OBS provides multiple permission control mechanisms to help you manage data stored in OBS. This section uses common scenarios of data permission control as examples to describe how to control access to data stored in OBS to ensure data security.

Verifying Data Consistency

Data inconsistency may occur due to network hijacking, cache, and other reasons during object upload and download. This section describes how to use the MD5 value calculating method to verify data consistency during data upload and download.

Performance Optimization

This section describes how to add random prefixes to object names to implement horizontal expansion for access requests, and thus improve the access rate and shorten the access delay.

Using a Presigned URL to Access OBS

This section describes how to use presigned URLs to access OBS from applications developed based on OBS. This method can better protect application data and prevent data leakage and unauthorized access in case of being attacked.

Accessing OBS Through an NGINX Reverse Proxy

This section describes how to configure the Nginx reverse proxy on an ECS, so that you can use a fixed IP address to access OBS.
