IBM Cloud Object Storage makes it possible to store practically limitless amounts of data, simply. It is commonly used as storage for web sites and mobile applications, data archiving and backup, enterprise file services, and analytics. Flexible storage class tiers with a policy-based archive lets users manage costs while meeting data access needs. The integrated Aspera high-speed data transfer option makes it easier to transfer data to and from Cloud Object Storage, and query-in-place functionality supports running analytics directly on users' data.
Storage classes. Manage costs while meeting data access needs. Storage class tiers are available for active (Standard), cool (Vault), cold (Cold Vault) and dynamic (Flex) data
Archive. Apply an age-based archive policy to move objects from any storage class to long term, lower-cost storage
Resiliency options. Meet availability and resiliency needs. Options include Cross Region, Regional or Single Data Center
Integrated Aspera high-speed data transfer. Quickly transfer data to and from IBM Cloud Object Storage with no cost for data ingress
Query-in-place. Run analytics directly on data at rest using IBM SQL Query
Data durability. Designed for 99.999999999-percent data durability
Encryption. Leverage server-side encryption. Optionally manage encryption keys or use IBM Key Protect
Identity and Access Management. Manage access control using role-based policies

- IBM Cloud Object Storage is designed to provide high durability and availability for data stored in the cloud. It does this by replicating data across multiple Availability Zones within a region, and by storing data in multiple geographic regions.
- IBM Cloud Object Storage also provides a number of features that make it well-suited for storing large amounts of data. For example, it offers infinite scalability, meaning that you can store as much data as you need without having to worry about capacity limits. It also offers a variety of data protection features, such as encryption at rest and in transit, and the ability to create snapshots of data for easy recovery in the event of data loss.
- A few areas where IBM Cloud Object Storage could improve include:
- Making it easier to manage data and permissions. It can be difficult to keep track of who has access to what data, and what they can do with it.
- Adding more features for analyzing and visualizing data. It would be helpful to be able to see more information about how data is being used and to have better tools for exploring it.
- Improving performance. Sometimes the system can be slow, particularly when dealing with large amounts of data.
- Making it easier to integrate with other systems. It can be challenging to connect IBM Cloud Object Storage to other tools and platforms.
- Manage, restore and available data as per demand.
- Easily maintain data on COS.
- High availability.
- COS can be provided as hyperlink to directly drag and drop.
- Easy management.
- Buckets can be made public.
- Free storage options.
- UI can be improved.
- Easy to access stored business information
- The reports on multiple data processing are quickly created.
- Capacity planning and other cloud data storage platform management
- Implementation on the initial usage of the platform
- Migrating a large amount of data across platforms is not an easy task.
- Setting the advanced Cloud functionalities is not easy also.
- Nothing to add
- Cost Effective
- Can be made more developer friendly.
- The documentation can be made better.
- integral data storage ecosystem
- data security and backup storage efficiency
- Maximize performance
- simpler creation template
- more visible execution status
- Objects (data) in an object-storage system are accessed via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
- You can store any number of static files on an object storage instance to be called by an API.
- File storage
- Block storage offers an alternative to file-based storage—one with improved efficiency and performance.
- Linkages with thirds party ( Aure / AWS etc).
- IBM [Cloud Object Storage] is great for the data [storage]. Even [with] bulky files and we can [still] get access to those data files without facing any complex or perplexing situations.
- It is a scalable tool, and has made it easy for us to scale our data as the volume of our files increases.
- It is a highly protective and secure platform, and our company’s secrecy is maintained with it.
- It provides details of the usage.
- I am not content with its collaboration feature.

- They have a cold vault service that is perfect for backups
- Easy to scale
- Easy to setup with multiple devices
- The speed, this was a important part, but we still have many desyncs.
- Setup with specific rules and data migrations can be a hassle.
- The UI can be daunting, it needs another look from UX perspective.
- Scalable unstructured data storage
- Built-out client APIs
- Competitive IO
- The price
- Better storage class management
- Cloud compatibility.
- Storing and/or managing unstructured data.

- Data and files storage
- Security to our organization information
- I have not come across any potential challenge that can lead to changes.
- There is no missing functionality.
