IBM Cloud File Storage

IBM Cloud File Storage is well suited for storing and retrieving data in large organizations. In smaller organizations, I would recommend choosing another solution that is lighter and easier to administrate.For example, I had to retrieve all the financial transactions from Jan 2018 to August 2018 that had some specific features, so that I could run my ML algorithms on it. It was pretty quick to retrieve that data even though it was stored in different locations

Our contact at IBM helped the entire company roll out with the cloud and it really helped. They were available all the time to answer any questions, adn troubleshoot any hiccups along the way. Most of our issues were use error, and they never got frustrated and were always willing to help

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud File Storage

My company also uses Citrix for academic course purposes. But we are in the service sector, Citrix was not appropriate and also slower. Our purpose has been well served by the features of IBM Cloud File Storage such as great capacity, and faster and safer tech
