The service provides general-purpose online file storage and retrieval intended primarily for long-term archival purposes. It handles routine backup and file sync functions, with an emphasis on reliable transfers of large files for environments tolerant of latency in completion of requests. It adapts the Reed-Solomon algorithm to minimize overhead while storing data across servers, and the processing time required may slow system response.
API methods support uploading and downloading data, along with file management functions like listing and deleting files stored. Methods also handle metadata management and monitoring system performance.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
