Using volumes via the API


If you store your files on AWS, the CGC API lets you connect your storage to the CGC. Once such a connection is established, files and objects from your cloud account are available for computation on the CGC. Similarly, files in your account on the CGC can be exported into your connected cloud storage. Please note that export to a volume is available only via the [API](doc:start-an-export-job-v2) (including [API client libraries](doc:api-language-bindings)), and through the [Seven Bridges CLI](doc:volumes-1#section-exports-start). Learn more about [connecting cloud storage](doc:connect-cloud-storage-overview) from our documentation. Operations on volumes are handled by the CGC API. For the API reference, see the [Volumes](doc:volumes-v2) section of the API documentation.
