Integrate Scaleway FREE 75GB Storage with NextCloud and ShareX

Scaleway is providing  75GB of free storage and external outgoing transfer to Internet. It is fully compatible with S3 protocol. This should give us an opportunity to mount it into NextCloud as an external storage.

In this post, I am going to describe the steps to integrate Scaleway Object Storage with NextCloud and ShareX together. 


Previously I have done this similar integration for Backblaze in following post;

But that was directly using ShareX upload to BackBlaze B2 free tier storage. There are quite a few quota for the traffic and only 10G storage free to use. 

Scaleway does provide more generous free tier solution which has 75GB for free. Lets see what they have in their free tier storage:

Storage Price from Scaleway Object Storage:
