IBM Cloud Object Storage

Scenarios where IBM Cloud Object Storage is well suited:
* Building enterprise-grade data solutions with large teams
* Where an all-in-one platform is needed to solve complex problems that require an ecosystem of tools to work together
* Where IBM services already exist in the business
* Projects where scalability, security and technology integration are key drivers
Scenarios where IBM Cloud Object Storage is not well suited:
* Small teams with small budgets may be better off using open source tools
* Solving niche industry problems that require niche solutions

Egnyte

Egnyte is great for working collaboratively on documents that are passed around from person to person. We use the WebEdit feature so only one person can edit the document at a time, which avoids confusion with multiple rounds of edits and is a huge help with version control. We have implemented our own detailed filing system and as long as this adheres to it, it means that there are never any missing files, or issues with finding/accessing documents when members of staff are on holiday or off sick. However, there are some documents that we still use Google Docs and Google Sheets for, as Egnyte doesn't allow multiple people to edit a document simultaneously. For collaborative work with clients, it's still very useful to be able to work on a document or spreadsheet at the same time and have instant updates, which Google services are good for.

Pros

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • IBM Cloud Object Storage is fast, secure, reliable and provides quick support when required.
  • Step by step documentation is easy to understand and implement for new users across the organization.
  • It is highly customizable and available based on the need of the use-case.

Egnyte

  • One of Egnyte's features that we use quite frequently is file sharing to individuals outside of our company - whether we're sharing documents with prospects, potential buyers, or clients, it's as easy as sending a link to share a file, or creating a guest profile for them to sign in if they need to upload documents to us.
  • Desktop sync is a feature in Egnyte that we could not live without! The continuous sync means that our systems always have the latest version of every document that's worked on almost instantaneously.
  • Password protected file sharing is a must - we are a business brokerage firm and so client confidentiality is one of our highest priorities. Having the ability to put our files behind a password-protected link for viewing and downloading has helped us immensely.

Cons

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • 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.

Egnyte

  • Workshops - a lot of people in our field have experienced a learning curve when implementing Egnyte. I think good workshops online would be excellent tools to allow them to reach Egnyte's full potential
  • Breaking links - If I share a confidential file, it would be excellent to easily re-access that link that was sent to that file and break that link (force it to no longer work). As it stands that often has to be done universally, and so one wrong move on our side has the potential to be catastrophic. There may be a way that I don't know about, but I think that points back to the idea of workshops
  • Varying user access - it would be nice to allow users to edit and delete only in certain parts of Egnyte, rather than giving them administrative access across the board.

We found that usage of Egnyte in our supported clients, with sufficient bandwidth, provided all the features and stability we required. The billing setup was fair and the support provided was ample for end users and well as our in house admins. There was a concern about high usage clients but this was taken into account during the vetting process.

We can really do anything we would like within Egnyte. If we find we're missing something, we can always go through their community and suggest changes. The major thing we're missing is the collaboration option within the desktop apps. It's working online though and for now, that's enough. Once it's implemented it will be 10/10.

Haven't had any issues with online page loading time. However, when downloading Keynote or Numbers files to WebEdit, there is often a delay in the file downloading or opening. Sometimes there are also issues with it opening multiple versions of the same file in WebEdit. One of these will be the WebEdit version and one will be a local version, if you don't notice this or accidentally close the wrong one, then you can lose your work. Sometimes this is retrievable through locally stored files but it does cause difficulties.

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.

I never had to reach out to customer support for Egnyte. I don't know any coworkers who have had to reach out to Egnyte for support either. As far as I am concerned, the support team is doing a good job since I have not had to reach out to them.

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.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Object Storage

I have evaluated Amazon S3 and Google's Cloud Platform.IBM Cloud Platform is well documented and very integrated with its other range of cloud services.It's quite difficult to differentiate between them all. IBM Cloud Storage is not a service I would have considered on its own merit, but with the power of Watson, which was an absolute pleasure to work with, alongside the cloud server options, I think the IBM cloud ecosystem provides something for everyone.

Egnyte

We also looked at Dropbox and a few others, and we found that Egnyte was (at the time) the ONLY HIPPA and Part 11 compliant software on the market. We loved the security features in Egnyte and felt safe trusting our data to such an innovative and reputable company. We are happy daily that we made the decision we did.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • Prior to cloud storage, we used on-premises storage devices to store and backup, and sometimes it was a headache to scale up or down the storage according to our needs. With the introduction of Cloud Object Storage, we don't have to worry about scaling.
  • The uptime is also improved a lot after the introduction of Cloud Object Storage in our organization
  • Obviously, it's a very cost-effective way to store and archive data.

Egnyte

  • Not having to install significant IT infrastructure is a real positive.
  • Rapid remote access to data helps business operations significantly.
  • Not having to hire in-house IT people to manage infrastructure is a significant cost saving.
  • Security is a concern as data could be accessed with just a password.
