This topic describes the paths of vector data stored in Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS) buckets and self-managed Multi-Cloud Object Storage (MinIO) buckets.

Paths of vector data in OSS buckets

The paths of vector data in OSS buckets are in the following format:
oss://<access_id>:<secrect_key>@[<Endpoint>]/path_to/file

The Endpoint parameter is optional. If you do not specify this parameter, Ganos finds an endpoint. If you do not specify this parameter in a path, make sure that the path starts with a forward slash (/). The Endpoint parameter specifies the region where the OSS bucket resides. To import data at high performance, make sure that your RDS instance and the OSS bucket reside in the same region. For more information, see OSS domain names.

Paths of vector data in MinIO buckets

The paths of vector data in MinIO buckets are in the following format. For more information about MinIO buckets, see Multi-Cloud Object Storage.
mio://<id>:<key>@<host>[:<port>]/path_to/file

If you do not specify the port parameter, the HTTPS port is used. To import data at high performance, make sure that your RDS instance and the self-managed MinIO bucket reside in the same region and communicate over an internal network.
