Overall Satisfaction with Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

Alibaba OSS is used to store uploaded files and static files for our platform usage. It's used for all platforms in our organization and it solves our problem of file storage availability. We used Backblaze too as a backup if something happens with Alibaba. We choose Alibaba because price-wise it's much cheaper than Amazon
  • Cheap
  • Many location options
  • Well documented
  • Reliability
  • Technical support
  • Availability
  • Storage efficiency
  • Cost efficiency
  • Low-availability
I used Backblaze as Alibaba OSS backup, Backblaze is good for you that need a cheap-first OSS service. In our team's opinion, Backblaze isn't too good for our region market (Southeast Asia) but its service can be reliable. So, we choose it as a backup service for Alibaba Object Storage Service.

It will be a very good decision to use Alibaba Object Storage Service if you need a good OSS at a cheap price. Alibaba is the answer to it, but you can't fully rely on it because sometimes on Southeast Asia server locations it will always have a high possibility of loss (can't be accessed, cant upload/download, etc.).
