    File recovering and easy data management from various cloud storage systems and the cost-effective capability on this IBM platform are excellent. Security on the system for the multiple data that are handled through the platform is excellent and the user can easily access any needed data from the cloud and provide useful data reports as well as excellent real-time data analytics.

    pCloud

    I need to store and share a lot of files. These include videos and other documents. Before using pCloud, I constantly had to clean up and delete files from my hard drive to free up space for new files. Sharing files and also using files on my website is now easier with pCloud's public folder.

    Pros

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.

    pCloud

    • pCloud helps us to store data very well and it is accessible from anywhere. It makes it easy for anyone to use it and secure the data. It is easy to upload data and access it while having a meeting with our client.
    • pCloud easily stores files from another platform as well like Google Drive or Dropbox. It easily exchanges information like images, videos, and documents. This feature is amazing as it gives access to files from other storage.
    • It had one feature known as pCloud Crypto which gives high-end security to the data when stored. It is highly secure and encrypted. It uses blockchain technology which requires a key to use called Crypto Pass to unlock your data. Really like it.

    Cons

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.

    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 just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

    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.

    pCloud's pricing is cheaper than alternatives. pCloud is modern and easy to understand.pCloud has mobile sync which is an amazing feature for me. Even it allows me to upload from a direct download link! pCloud has every feature that an average user required as a cloud backup or cloud storage.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
    Dana Rafiee | TrustRadius Reviewer

    pCloud

    • pCloud had worked very well for us. It had given the best service and features to us whenever we needed our data. It was there safe and secure.
    • The Synchronization issue is there with pCloud Data Storage. It needs to be updated by the developers if possible.
    • pCloud has helped us with the improvement of our business requirements, as it makes our work easier and fast enough to deliver the project details on time to clients.
