- Creating containers
- Uploading objects

- Listing containers and objects
- Downloading objects
- Deleting containers and objects

This allows us to operate our OpenStack Object Storage environment by allowing us to create containers, upload files, retrieve them, and set required permissions on them, as appropriate.
So in this particular subsequent fields, you are going to get a clear idea about various usages of OOS.
