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.).

NetApp
The NetApp StorageGRID solution fits in perfectly with what our company was trying to accomplish. Our goal was to free up our expensive storage flash (SSD) capacity for our critical applications to allow for growth and added performance capabilities. I do not believe this solution would be greatly suited for those without a Cloud solution or secondary site/system to tier data.

NetApp Support was able to quickly resolve a networking issue during the deployment of the NetApp StorageGRID system, which we, unfortunately, could not figure out on our own. Not only did Support engage quickly, but they also provided guidance on how to properly troubleshoot various issues such as the one we encountered and also provided excellent documentation.

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.

NetApp
We chose NetApp StorageGRID because we were not looking for a true backup solution but wanted the features to included a DR centric ideology. The IBM Cloud Backup solution was purely backup focused and did not fit the requirements for our needs. NetApp StorageGRID checked all of our boxes in regards to cost, use case, and ease of manageability.
