CloudFlare R2 announced

Cloudflare have announced a new storage service named R2. I get the feeling they were planning on releasing May 4th, but something slowed them down :slight_smile:

It uses the S3 API so is presumably compatible with Kopia. Worth a look, as pricing is reasonable, and Cloudflare have a history of offering high-performing products.

I’ll be testing their free tier and will post results in this thread.

It looks like the S3 API is not fully implemented by R2.

error: can't connect to storage: unable to determine if bucket "test" exists: GetBucketLocation not implemented

Checking their API status page suggests that this is a known shortcoming.

So it looks like we may need to wait this one out.
