Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is currently being used by the whole organization to upload files on the IBM Cloud.
As I work in a bank, security is very important and this is possible by offering the possibility of encrypting the loaded data by using Key Protect. We're also using it to archive infrequent accessed data for long-term retention.
  • File storage.
  • Data protection and security.
  • Query data in place.
  • Data archiving.
  • At first, it is not easy to master the user interface.
  • Flexible storage class tiers and low-cost archive.
  • Reduced time to set up an IBM COS instance.
  • Security.
  • Data Analysis.
IBM Cloud Object Storage is very beneficial because it has full support for large joins, window functions and arrays.
In my company, the most used storage class tiers is less active workloads. IBM Cloud Object Storage is used for less active workloads that require infrequent data access, but that require immediate, real-time access when needed.
IBM Cloud Object Storage looks a lot like AWS S3. However, we use IBM Cloud Object Storage because IBM Cloud is our cloud provider.
  • IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service
  • IBM Cloud Container Registry
  • IBM Cloud Garage
  • IBM Cloud App ID
  • IBM Cloudant
  • Devops Insights
  • IBM API Connect
Easy of use and IBM Cloud Object Storage integrates easily with other IBM Cloud services.
  • Encrypt data stored in IBM Cloud Object Storage.
  • IBM Cloud IAM roles can be enforced to be applied to IBM Cloud Object storage.
  • Flexible storage class tiers and low-cost archive.
  • Possibility to protect data against deletion or modification (Immutable Data Storage).
