Creating Your First File System

This topic guides you through creating your first Storage Gateway file system.

Think of a file system as a namespace containing a dataset that’s accessible through Storage Gateway. A Storage Gateway file system in this context represents a mapping between a directory on your on-premises host and a bucket in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage. When you create a Storage Gateway file system, you define the connection credentials that Storage Gateway uses to connect to your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure tenancy.
