Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

We are using IBM Cloud Object Storage for storing and accessing structured and unstructured data for our company as part of our overall IBM Cloud package. We are using it across the whole organization. It addresses our security concerns about the data, it is able to keep our data secure and private, and it's able to store our data on the cloud so that we can access it easily--and we like the high-speed file transfer services. It also integrates well with other IBM services.
  • High-speed file transfer
  • Integrates well with IBM services
  • Data security
  • The user interface can be made simpler
  • Options for different languages
  • More training resources for users
  • We can study our data for a long time
  • Multiple people have easy access to the data
  • Easy data transfer
Using IBM Cloud SQL query based in Apache Spark, we are able to perform fast and complex analytics on IBM Cloud SQL Query data, combining the power and utility of Spark with our data. We can produce the results we are looking for faster and we are able to make decisions faster as well, based on the data.
IBM Cloud Object Storage integrates with IBM Aspera, which allows for high-speed data transfer to and from. The other thing is that the data can be of any size, which is ideal for us, as we don't have to worry about the size of the data or the distance when making the transfer. So we can transfer to any part of the world at high speed.
The storage class tiers for data have been great for us, as they have different pricing, so we can choose the options that suit us best at a cost that we can afford. This flexibility has helped our organization to manage costs more effectively based on our data access needs. We don't have to worry about getting a package that we don't need.
  • IBM Watson Studio (formerly IBM Data Science Experience)
It's more suited when you want to save structured/unstructured data easily in a safe and secure environment that will be easy to access anytime from any computer with internet access. Your data will be safe and you will be able to transfer it to any device or devices at high speed as well. It's not appropriate for users who have limited training in using IBM Cloud in general, as it takes a little bit of time to know your way around the program.
