ClearDATA recognized their challenges and made efforts to resolve them. However, they learned DR was not their forte. Instead, they turned their focus towards cloud application and data hosting. Considering the relationships built, I would try their services again, especially with some of our applications needing to be moved into a legacy format.

IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is a very good solution for storing data in the cloud, especially if you are already using other IBM Cloud offerings. It has feature parity with Amazon S3 and is compatible with its APIs, making migrations from one to another easy. Its native integration with Aspera makes transferring large files (several gigabytes or more) fast and efficient.

Pros

ClearDATA

  • Leadership is very attentive, working hard to forge interpersonal relationships

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • Highly secure way of storing and sharing data as it needs authorization to be accessible.
  • Pre-built API calls and code snippers make accessing data via secure APIs a breeze.
  • Easy to migrate data to and from data storage
  • Ability to manage large amounts of data with considerable speed

Cons

ClearDATA

  • Support was a challenge. Often tickets would sit until escalated.
  • Clear expectations on both sides caused communication challenges.
  • Data stored in the cloud was over 7 days old, and if there was a need to restore the data, business continuity would be greatly affected.

  • While this platform has been around, it does take some getting used. The interface could be refined. My Firefox Browser automatically closed when selecting some options and creating new objects as an example.
  • The tutorials are a bit outdated in comparison to the screens shown. We understand the system is constantly improving. The tutorials should reflect the changes in the interface.
  • There are many pre-trained models. However, it is not clear as to how those models were trained, what bias may exist in the training data, and how a user could improve those models unless we simply have to build our own.

I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

Zadara:This is our current provider. We have a SaaS (Storage as a Service) solution coupled with cloud disaster recovery. So far, this service has been exemplary.

Aws platforms requires a lot of prerequisite knowledge, which is of very high cost to developers and data scientists in general. Although we were able to facilitate training for usage of aws, the overhead of maintenance and onboarding still poses a big problem. This is why IBM Cloud Object Storage comes as a very good out of box solution.

Return on Investment

ClearDATA

  • Hard to say as we never really tested the data recovery, even though it was part of the scope of the project.
  • Considering the challenges, I would say we paid for something we didn't receive. However, when escalated we got somewhere.
  • From a customer service standpoint, it was 50/50.

  • For example, we had a user that was expending a lot of money with database storage on IBM Cloud. We created a workflow to offload the data from database to object storage. This saved the customer money and helped us to retain the customer on IBM Cloud.
