Learn how to configure Paperspace for use with Filebase.

What is Paperspace?

Paperspace is a cloud computing platform that enables developers to create next-generation applications from within their web browser. Paperspace offers a variety of Machine Learning models and fully managed cloud GPU platforms for endless development environments. Paperspace allows you to use and store data on S3-compatible storage services such as Filebase.

Read below to learn how to use Paperspace with Filebase.


1. First, we need to configure our Filebase bucket to have a CORS policy that allows connection to Paperspace.

For more detailed information on CORS, check out our documentation here.

To do this, create a new file called cors.json with the following content:

        "AllowedHeaders": [
        "AllowedMethods": [
        "AllowedOrigins": [
        "ExposeHeaders": [],
        "MaxAgeSeconds": 3000


2. Next, apply this CORS policy to your Filebase bucket with the command:

aws --endpoint s3api put-bucket-cors --bucket filebase-bucket --cors-configuration=file://cors.json

3. To confirm the CORS policy was applied correctly, use the following command:

aws --endpoint s3api get-bucket-cors --bucket filebase-bucket

4. Login to the Paperspace dashboard.

When prompted for the product type, select Gradient. You’ll be brought to the Gradient dashboard.
