Creating a Bucket

If you need to store data that you generate during a caliban cloud run, storing data in a Cloud bucket is the easiest choice.

Your bucket is a reserved “folder” on the Cloud filesystem; you’ll use this to save models and measurements, and as a staging ground for model workflows you’re submitting to Cloud.

To create your bucket, add the following lines to your ~/.bashrc file:

export BUCKET_NAME="totoro_bucket"
export REGION="us-central1"

Run source ~/.bashrc to pick up the changes, then run the following command to create your new bucket:

gsutil mb -l $REGION gs://$BUCKET_NAME

That’s it.
