S3 API Compatibility Guide

This guide provides details of the supported, and unsupported Lyve Cloud API calls relative to Amazon Web Services’ Simple Storage Service (AWS S3). This guide is intended for S3 aware application developers and architects responsible for storing data.

Public bucket access

Lyve Cloud does not support:

  • Any anonymous access to buckets, as all API calls to Lyve Cloud must be authenticated.
  • Generating a pre-signed URL with a custom domain name to access s3 buckets.
  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) for websites, nor does it support hosting static websites using custom domains.
  • Creating a prefix with an empty name.
  • Creating an object with the same prefix name at the same level.
  • Unlisting of prefixes when using the ls command, even if it contains only delete markers when versioning is enabled.

Signature Versions

Lyve Cloud supports Signature Version 4 (SigV4).
