This topic describes the application scenarios of OSS.

Massive storage for image, audio, and video applications

OSS can be used to store large amounts of data, such as images, audio and video, and logs. You can use a variety of devices, websites, and mobile applications to read data from or write data to OSS. You can write data to OSS by uploading files or using streams.

Dynamic and static content separation for websites and mobile applications

By using the high bandwidth provided by OSS, you can concurrently download a large amount of data from OSS over the Internet. OSS provides Transfer acceleration that accelerates uploads and downloads across countries and continents and improves user experience. You can also use OSS with Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver static data stored in OSS to CDN edge nodes. Users can access the data cached on CDN edge nodes instead of the same data stored in OSS. This way, the concurrent and repeated download of an object within the same region can be accelerated.

Cloud data processing

After you upload objects to OSS, you can use ApsaraVideo for Media Processing and Image Processing (IMG) to process the uploaded data.
