Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

Object Storage acts as our backbone for data used in our Machine Learning development. It allows cloud-based access to files. We can easily upload files through an API from our application and then use these in the ML model we are building in Watson Studio for our client. The main usage is storing images that are analysed with the Visual Recognition Service.

Pros

  • Easy API access
  • Cloud-base scalability
  • Comprehensive web interface

Cons

  • More analytics and usage alerts
  • Easy to upload and manage files.
  • Security and scalability from day one.
We have not used it so far but it is great to have a tool that can go beyond what we currently need. It feels like we have made a safe investment of our time in a platform that can expand to cover future needs when they come, also justifying our choices towards our clients.
We have not used IBM Aspera so far but it is great that such functionality is possible. We look forward to having a use case for this soon. When dealing with very large files, high-speed data transfers are crucial in order to accomplish the task in hand and provide a quick solution to the client.
Yes, different store class tiers can be very helpful in managing our costs. We are dealing with gigabytes of data which we use in training machine learning models. Keeping data in cold storage can allow us to retain these files in the IBM Cloud and access them at a later stage while keeping our costs manageable.
As we have selected the IBM Cloud for our ML development, IBM Cloud Object Storage is the perfect choice for our needs. The full integration of the IBM services simplify our development processes and allows us to provide a faster solution to our clients, without any surprises and incompatibilities that slow down progress.
Cloud Object Storage is a straightforward choice when working with IBM Watson. It is a very reliable service that does not get in the way of development. There is extensive documentation and examples on how to use the Cloud Object Storage. We have no complaints so far from our current usage and would highly recommend it.
