Namespace /object/namespaces API for provisioning and managing namespaces.
Replication Group /vdc/data-service/vpools API for provisioning and managing replication groups.

Note: Replication group was previously known as "object virtual pool" and the API still uses the term "vpool"

Base URL is used as part of the object address where virtual host style addressing is used and enables ECS to know which part
of the address refers to the bucket and, optionally, namespace.

For example, if you are using an addressing scheme that includes the namespace, so that you have addresses of the form:, you need to tell ECS that is the Base URL so that it knows that mybucket.mynamespace are the bucket and namespace
