Storm Object Storage delivers a durable, secure, highly available solution for storage needs of virtually any size. With object storage access occurs via API calls to the object storage cluster, which replaces the need to rely on additional servers for dedicated storage.
Here we use the client awscli to interact with Storm Object Storage. If you don’t have awscli installed then you can follow these instructions: How to Install an Object Storage Command Line Interface (awscli)

- These instructions are intended specifically for configuring awscli for use with Storm Object Storage.
- I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Core Managed CentOS 7 server with awscli installed.
Login to https://manage.liquidweb.com and view the details of the Object Store to which you’d like to connect:
Note the Access Key and the Secret Key.
Use the following command to begin the configuration:
You will be prompted with the following:
AWS Access Key ID [None]:
Enter your Access Key, which in my cases is: PT5E42JDUFAVUZATZEK7
Then you’ll be prompted for:
AWS Secret Access Key [None]:
Enter your Secret Key, which will be something like: YYaywzUgVLcd/m5k3JpKhJnXwRfE/LMujszKMV2m
Note: The above key pair will NOT work. It is just an example.
You will then be prompted twice more for:
Default region name [None]:
Default output format [None]:
You do not have to add any information to the last two prompts. Simply hit Enter at each prompt.
The information you entered above will end up in the following configuration file:
aws configure set default.s3.signature_version s3
