Documentation and Resources for Developers

Memstore™ is based on OpenStack Object Storage, which is compatible to some extent with RackSpace Cloud Files.

Besides we provide extra methods through Memset API:

Authentication APIs

Memstore™ supports two authentication APIs: Auth 1.0 (swift) and Auth 2.0 (keystone; currently in beta). Please read our Container Access Control List documentation for details about user management.

Auth 1.0 (swift)

This authentication API is compatible with most OpenStack Object Storage and Cloud Files consumers.

  • URL:
  • Username: your Memstore™ access username (e.g. mstestaa1.admin).
  • API key: the user password.

Auth 2.0 (keystone)

This is the new authentication API that is replacing Auth 1.0 for new OpenStack Object Storage consumers.

  • URL:
  • Username: your Memstore™ username (e.g. admin).
  • Password: the user password.
  • Tenant name: your Memstore™ name (e.g. mstestaa1).

Depending on the library you're using you may also need the service name ('memstore'), the region (usually 'reading', check your Memstore's network zone in the control panel), and the URL type ('publicURL').
