You can list bucket contents with a web browser. To do this, visit the URL that consists of the external DNS name for the S3 endpoint that you specified when creating the S3 cluster and the bucket name. For example, mys3storage.example.com/mybucket.

Note

You can also copy the link to bucket contents by right-clicking it in CyberDuck, and then selecting Copy URL.

  • To download files, select them and click Download.

2.1.5. Obtaining and Validating File Certificates

Virtuozzo Infrastructure Platform offers integration with the Acronis Notary service to leverage blockchain notarization and ensure the immutability of data saved in S3 buckets.

To certify files stored in your buckets, ask your system administrator to enable the Acronis Notary service for the buckets.

After that, you will be able to do the following:

  • To get a notarization certificate for a file, select it and click Get Certificate.
  • To check the validity of a file’s certificate, click Verify.
