Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is being used as a repository of photos and images for our growing online community forum which is 13 years in existence now. Our media assets need to be kept in a reliable object storage service provider that is intuitive, affordable, and fast, and we find IBM Object Cloud Storage to be the perfect place for our files, videos, audio, and pictures. After we have uploaded these files into IBM Cloud Object Storage, we get the public URL of these files and make them available for view on our forum site. We also want to keep all other media assets in IBM as a back-up drive in case something happens to our phones and laptops. So far, we are enormously satisfied with IBM's storage service. There is just one feature that we hope to see in the future - that is the option to have a preview of every photo we've uploaded in IBM. When photos are in the thousands, a preview or thumbnail of each photo saves time in our decision-making whether to use it or not.

We have not used this feature of IBM Cloud Object Storage. Nevertheless, we are very much interested to explore this great feature once we are ready and as the need arises.
The transfer of files is lightning-fast. You don't have to worry once you've uploaded your files.
Yes, it helps a lot. With active storage, all photos can be linked to our network of blog sites and forum sites, being stored in a public bucket.
IBM Cloud Storage makes things simple and delivers the same result. We don't need to complicate things, from a user's perspective, if the purpose of cloud storage is just simple.
We have yet to try the other services offered by IBM Cloud.
IBM Cloud Object Storage is well suited as a content delivery network (CDN) service. It is also best for backing-up any file that can be accessed publicly or stored privately forever.
