Why is DreamObjects the perfect choice for your storage needs?

DreamObjects is object storage the DreamHost way. It’s way beyond a simple RAID array... it’s intelligent. This is fault-tolerant storage distributed across hundreds of disks and servers. It scales beyond the limits of a traditional filesystem and is all managed by our expert cloud engineers. And did we mention it’s built on open source software incubated in the DreamHost labs?

With three-times-replication, DreamObjects is the perfect place to store your backups. And since anything you store can be accessed with a URL, it’s perfect for web content like images and video, especially with the fully integrated CDN. It even distributes your content while keeping it private with time-limited links.

DreamObjects is also a very affordable option at only pennies per gigabyte. View the following page for further details on pricing:
