Gateway inherits the following GCS limitations:
- Maximum number of multipart parts per upload is 1024.
- Only read-only or write-only bucket policy supported at bucket level, all other variations will return API Notimplemented error.
- List Multipart Uploads and List Object parts always returns empty list. i.e Client will need to remember all the parts that it has uploaded and use it for Complete Multipart Upload
- Bucket notification APIs are not supported.
