Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is being used by a cross-institutional research group for sharing data among researchers in different universities. Data sharing for files with huge sizes has become easy and organized.
  • Fast uploading/downloading, drag-and-drop options available for files
  • Detailed tutorials available
  • The user interface is cluttered. Very difficult to navigate to the relevant resources for a beginner. The navigation process is not obvious.
  • Have not been using it long enough to provide a justifiable assessment.
This feature has not been used by me so far.
IBM Cloud Object Storage is useful for collaborative projects with team members in different physical locations.
I feel Dropbox Business is more seamless, easier to use compared to IBM Cloud
Sharing data greater than 1TB seems like a job for IBM Cloud Object Storage.
