IBM Cloud Block Storage is used as the block storage for all Kubernetes and Openshift clusters used across the company and for customer projects.
It solves the problem of having a trusted Storage as a service, easily integrated with other assets and services deployed on IBM Cloud, and used to solve various business problems and challenges.

  • Quick to integrate
  • Cheap
  • Time for deployment
  • Separated billing
  • Documentation to be simplified
  • Price
  • Integration with cloud services
IBM Cloud Object Storage is better suited for application development and easy to use from a higher level.

IBM Cloud Block Storage is better suited as block storage as a service and totally integrated with the infrastructure as a service, making it easy to deploy and used either itemized or integrated into other IaaS offerings.

IBM Cloud Block Storage is well suited in scenarios where there is a need for the equivalent of shared block storage, as for deploying and using Kubernetes and Openshift platforms.
Each piece of Block storage is used on a 1:1 basis as a Persistent Volume for Kubernetes, and it allows high scalability and flexibility.

On the other hand, for software development or higher-level usage, IBM Cloud Object Storage would be a better fit.
