A bucket is a public cloud storage resource or container that stores objects or data.
DigitalOcean Spaces uses buckets as logical groupings of data. The bucket contains all objects and data stored in Spaces. You use buckets to organize data and control who has access to the data; however, you cannot nest buckets.
Prior to 2023, DigitalOcean referred to buckets as “Spaces”, the same as the product name. Now DigitalOcean uses the term bucket to be consistent with industry standards.
