Cloud Storage

Note: This feature is available in Ultimate and Team editions, as well as in CloudBeaver Enterprise.


Cloud Storage extends the functionality of Cloud Explorer to enable file management within cloud environments of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. This feature simplifies the process of interacting with cloud-stored files. To use Cloud Storage, you must have either an existing cloud provider access connection or configure a new one.

The following are the specific cloud storage services that Cloud Storage interacts with in each cloud environment:

Tip: For detailed setup instructions, refer to the Cloud configuration section in the Cloud Explorer article.

Cloud Storage

After configuring your cloud provider access, you can start using Cloud Storage. To access it, follow these steps:

  • Click the Cloud Storage button on the toolbar.
  • Alternatively, go to the menu and select Window -> Cloud Storage.

This action will launch a window displaying the cloud services for which credentials were provided during setup. In this window, use the dropdown menu to navigate through folders and view files stored in the cloud.

You can filter and sort your folders and files by their name or region using the interface's Name and Region columns. Click on the respective column header to organize the displayed folders, according to these criteria, especially useful when managing a large number of folders.
