A bucket is a container of your objects. Each object must be stored in a bucket in OSS. The objects in a bucket are stored in a non-hierarchical structure instead of a directory-based file system. You can set and change the attributes of a bucket to control the region, ACL, and life cycle of the bucket. These attributes apply to all the objects stored in the bucket. Therefore, you can create buckets with different settings to complete different management tasks.

The following figure shows the overview page of a bucket.
