Wasabi Basics

To get the most out of Wasabi, let's review a few simple concepts. Wasabi stores data as objects in buckets. An object consists of a file and, optionally, any permissions and metadata that describes the file. A bucket is a storage container into which you upload your files.

You can have one or more buckets and, for each, you can:

Control access to it (who can create, delete, and list objects in the bucket)

View access logs for the bucket and the objects it stores
