Introduction


HCS is a cloud of distributed storage nodes designed to support your online storage needs with full replication, guaranteed high availability and asset durability. HCS is an enterprise- grade cloud storage solution, and can be used independently or in conjunction with your other Highwinds infrastructure solutions such as custom colocation and transit, or the Highwinds global CDN. Content owners and distributors can store assets online and choose to deliver them directly from storage or via the CDN... maximizing their options for both price and performance.

Find the "<settings>" section, add the following entry:

<setting name="cf.authentication.context" value="/auth/v1.0" />

Note for non-admin container level access: There is an issue with Cyberduck’s current configuration where users that have credentials to specific containers cannot connect with HCS containers using the latest version of Cyberduck: https://trac.cyberduck.io/ticket/851. This can be resolved by by downloading CD version 4.6.1 https://update.cyberduck.io/windows/Cyberduck-Installer-4.6.1.exe
