Reading Time: 3 minutes

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 Cyberduck to interact with Storm Object Storage. Cyberduck can be downloaded from here:

Step 2: Configure Cyberduck to Connect to Storm Object Storage

To make setting up Storm Object Storage connections easier in Cyberduck we’ve created a new default Cyberduck profile. This profile contains all the preconfigured settings you’ll need to successfully connect to Storm Object Storage and will load those settings into a connection profile.

  • Download and save the Liquid Web Object Storage Profile for Cyberduck.
  • Open the connection profile (by clicking on it). This will start a process that adds a Liquid Web Storm Object Storage profile to the Cyberduck interface.
    Double Click the LiquidWeb Cyberduck profile file
  • Once this completes it should open a new Cyberduck connection settings window.
    After double clicking, Cyberduck will open with a new connection window.

Your Cyberduck app is now configured to work with Liquid Web’s Storm Object Storage. You only need to do this step once, after you’ve done it you can set up new connections to Storm Object Storage as usual.

Step 3: Make your first connection to Storm Object Storage
  • Enter a nickname for the connection bookmark. (Optional)
  • Enter your Storm Object Storage Access Key. Then, close the connection configuration settings window.Enter connection information
  • Double-click on the connection you just configured to open the connection to your Storm Object Storage.
  • Enter your Secret Key and click Login.
