OCS Service (Oktawave Cloud Storage) allows you to configure your own system of object-oriented data storage in the cloud. In order to fully use it, you'll need an application that supports the RESTful API: an excellent tool for sharing data between multiple application servers. It works very well as a cheap and reliable engine delivering static files to your website. By using a desktop client (e.g. CyberDuck), you can use OCS as a reliable network drive.
To find more details about the API Oktawave that you can use to create a system of object-oriented data storage in the cloud, please visit Oktawave, in the section with the documentation of your platform.
To a limited extent (simple upload, download and viewing files) you can use the OCS service through the file explorer embedded OCS tab.
From the explorer you can browse the contents of previously created folders, create, rename, add, copy and move files.
Clicking a folder displays its contents. To enter the settings, select it and click Edit.
By default, the folder listing, and public access to it are enabled. If you want to change it, uncheck the appropriate item and click Save.
Entering the file properties is similar. In this case, you can add the Attribute and Value.
If you would like to create new container, then just click the buttom ADD CONTAINER. Remember that new container can be created only by main user admin.
If you want to add files, go to one of the folders in the root directory and click Add. You will see a box in which you should select File and then find it on the drive. In the same place you can add subdirectories and objects.
For file operations buttons Copy, Cut and Paste are used. If you want to move files from one folder to another, simply select the files, click Cut and then go to the destination folder and click Paste.
