9.5.2. Adding namespace resources using the Multicloud Object Gateway

Add existing storage to Multicloud Storage Gateway as namespace resources so that they can be included in namespace buckets for a unified view of existing storage targets, such as Amazon Web Services S3 buckets, Microsoft Azure blobs, and IBM Cloud Object Storage buckets.

      If you need to add a new connection, click Add New Connection and enter your provider details; see 「Adding provider connections to the Multicloud Object Gateway」 for more information.

    2. In Target Bucket, select the name of the bucket to use as a target.
    3. Enter a Resource Name for your namespace resource.
    4. Click Create.
