I am an Independent Creative Developer. We offer Design, Development, and products. Our-end users are related with Food, music, art, design, travel, and more else.
Ok. Right now, I'm trying to automate tasks with IBM Cloud Object Storage.
Now, I am in charge of the IT migration platform for a robust and reliable company, who want to offer a flexible and scalable Cloud infrastructure. We have been getting problems with the deployment and the documentation IBM offers is interesting and easy to read, [easy to] understand syntax.

We want to migrate some projects related with K Percussion (hybrid percussion) related with E-Learning about percussion music and programming technologies to engage with end users around the world. What is our commitment? To provide an robust an responsive platform for customers, clients and stakeholders.
  • Reliability. One of the most important interests in the industry. A well performance, low latency and high flexibility for tasks, as CI/CD through pipelines. Positive
  • Security. Customers needs is the reason to exist right? Privacy about their content, and how they handle it, is the entire reason the IBM offers to their customers. Positive
  • Documentation. About it, it is interesting because it helps to know more about their products, knowledge. Positive
  • Learning. IBM brings me continuous education and improvement. Well, I try to apply this knowledge to design user experiences or get more insights. Know applying this to the IBM Object Cloud Storage. Positive.
  • No complaints about anything.
Right now, as I said, I don't have complaints, or issues. It [would] be interest[ed] to find a blog or a blog community for developers and people involved with IT technologies and Cloud Database Migration directly with IBM.
