“Cloud” is a big name nowadays and rightfully so. It provides scalability, is economic (pay-per-use and reduced capital cost), flexible, globalization, reduced cost for technical infrastructures, and numerous other benefits.
One of the most common uses of “Clouds”, is shared or backup storage. A number of services provide free (limited) storage, and several provide an easy to use, comfortable interface, such as a folder (subdirectory) on your desktop where you may drop file to be automatically backed up (to the cloud service and retrieved – or even shared between users). Several of these services: Dropbox, Sugarsync, Skydrive, Googledrive, and iCloud offer free storage. These services not only provide storage services but also an Application Program Interface (API) where you can program your way of using those services.
Among these services, one prominent name is IBM. IBM Bluemix is a cloud platform as a service (PaaS). It supports several programming languages like Java, Node.js, Go, PHP, Python, Ruby Sinatra, Ruby on Rails. In this article I am going to describe how python can be used to store/delete files in bluemix object storage.
