Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

I used IBM to store data and apps for my NGO colleagues to simplify data access, usage, monitoring, and follow up on projects we serve to the community. It is a bit hard at the beginning. Once I got used to it, I found it easy and reliable with a wide access of supporting tools and community. Highly recommend it!
  • Speed of processing
  • Safe storage
  • Easy access and reliability
  • More user friendly interface.
  • Supporting video tutorials in other languages like Arabic.
  • Additional marketing investment to make sure IBM voice and products reach everyone on the globe.
  • We are NGO. We don't seek ROI, but speed is one example.
  • Sharing in a reliable way.
  • Monitoring tools and the way we generate our data is efficient.
It is very useful since SQL is widely used. Therefore, it can adapt to various situations and for a wide variety of usage scenarios.
In our country, internet connection is a bit limited, nevertheless, I found IBM storage really fast and reliable. I don't remember one single case that I could complain about. On the other hand, it is futuristic to be able to manage data this way and be able to serve multiple users or colleagues at the same time with really good quality and high reliability.
Yes indeed, I don't know how you guys do it, but as an end-user, I was able to manage costs and plan my projects in a faster way. Time means money, especially nowadays. The flexibility offered was really helpful, it saves time and resources. In the end, money was saved, and we can work on more projects at the same time.
This is the key. All tools at the same platform, that can be integrated with other well-known tools is an added value to all the provided services. The impact was positive. I enjoyed using the existing tools and the availability of monitoring effectively at almost no time/effort needed.
It is a very well adopted solution to scenarios when your privacy is a must. For example, in our case, private data to many local habitats and contributors are shared to make analytical studies and generate statics, especially during ththes pandemic. I believe it is a good solution for all scenarios but one little issue is the interface; it has to be more user-friendly.
