  • Container - represents a container which can contain multiple objects. You can think of it as a folder on a file system. Difference between container and a folder on file system is that containers cannot be nested. Some APIs and providers (e.g. AWS) refer to it as a Bucket.
  • Object - represents an object or so called BLOB.
