Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is the primary cloud storage solution we use in our organization. We store images, audios, videos, and other file assets, run reports and other analytics on the meta-data associated with those assets.
  • Compatibility with Amazon S3 API
  • Simple and quick to setup
  • Secure
  • Integration with other cloud services such as AI
  • Does not support S3 style versioning for public cloud
  • Documentation, while easy to use, certain configurations lack documentation (or hard to find) for further clarification.
  • Easy and straightforward solution for our cloud storage needs
  • Consumption based pricing and is cost effective
IBM Cloud Object Storage offers one key differentiator, which is its compatibility with Amazon S3. It is a key benefit we need as many of our applications work with Amazon S3 (a more popular and well supported solution), being compatible with its API, this allowed us to use IBM Cloud Object Storage without needing to make any additional changes.
If you are on IBM Cloud, the IBM Cloud Object Storage should be your "go to" solution for your storage needs. It is robust, easy to use, and is compatible with Amazon S3 API. You can also run SQL-like queries on the objects/files stored there. Its high availability also makes it very reliable.
