Working with resources in Cloud Storage Solutions

Use Cloud Storage Solutions commands to create, change, and display resources. A resource defines a cloud server location and the credentials needed to access that location.

The cloud service provider or FTP server administrator must provide the location and credential information for the resource. Cloud Storage Solutions supports several cloud service providers, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Google Cloud Storage, and IBM Cloud Object Storage.

To create and use resources, you can use Cloud Storage Solutions commands or the Cloud Storage Solutions API to copy files between IFS directories on the IBM i computer and the cloud server. You cannot work with files in the /QSYS.LIB file system.
