Likelihood to Recommend

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

It will be a very good decision to use Alibaba Object Storage Service if you need a good OSS at a cheap price. Alibaba is the answer to it, but you can't fully rely on it because sometimes on Southeast Asia server locations it will always have a high possibility of loss (can't be accessed, cant upload/download, etc.).

Azure Blob Storage

For cold backups, archive data, and if you need cheap online storage that will not be regularly accessed. Also very good for streaming videos or audio files, for example, if you have an online education portal, you can store all the video files in Blob storage and then just load them on your website. The same applies for storing website content, pdfs, etc.

Pros

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

  • Cheap
  • Many location options
  • Well documented
Mochammad Zachri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Blob Storage

  • Reduced cost. We were able to reduce our storage infrastructure by several hundred terabytes by consolidating redundant copies and dedupe/compression on files.
  • Extremely high level of redundancy. We can replicate data in a variety of ways that we would never have been capable of on our own hardware.

Cons

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

  • Reliability
  • Technical support
  • Availability

Azure Blob Storage

  • One thing we wish was done better is more guidance for building it out from day one. We did not know what we were doing and until we hired an implementation person that understood what we wanted to do. We spent a lot of time and money doing things over several times.
  • Help customers hook up with talented (local) implementation specialists would be great.

Documentation sometimes appears to be out of date or not fully documented properly with new releases. It is like documentation comes out for a specific version and is quickly out of date. Another issue is documentation is scarce on new releases and only seems to get properly updated (and sometimes is still wrong) once enough people hit the forums to complain.

Alternatives Considered

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

I used Backblaze as Alibaba OSS backup, Backblaze is good for you that need a cheap-first OSS service. In our team's opinion, Backblaze isn't too good for our region market (Southeast Asia) but its service can be reliable. So, we choose it as a backup service for Alibaba Object Storage Service.

Azure Blob is the only major cloud object storage platform that we use today.

Return on Investment

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

  • Storage efficiency
  • Cost efficiency
  • Low-availability
Mochammad Zachri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Blob Storage

  • Azure Blob Storage is just way cheaper than anything we could afford to do on-prem. Forecasting spend is way easier with predictable growth than it is with large capital expenditures every few years, and that ability to grow or shrink dynamically is simplifies things.
