Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

[IBM Cloud Object Storage] is utilized in our
IT department, most specifically. I have found it [to be] a convenient and
advanced tool for data storage as well as for the management of the data
lifecycle. It is a solution that is great for data recovery, storage,
cost-effectiveness, and time saver. A scalable tool that has the propensity to
store massive files of petabyte data.
  • IBM [Cloud Object Storage] is great for the data [storage]. Even [with] bulky files and we can [still] get access to those data files without facing any complex or perplexing situations.
  • It is a scalable tool, and has made it easy for us to scale our data as the volume of our files increases.
  • It is a highly protective and secure platform, and our company’s secrecy is maintained with it.
  • It provides details of the usage.
  • I am not content with its collaboration feature.
  • Sharing data is not easy, and should be improved.
  • The condition to get access to IBM cloud storage by only utilizing an IBM Cloud account is a bit unsatisfying for us.
  • We can get access to our company’s data from almost anywhere.
  • Our data is secure, protected, and easily accessible.
  • It is not [as] effective [with] sharing features , [which] has some negative impact on our business.
  • No other negative return on investment on our business except for sharing feature.
It is the most important feature for our company as it helps
in analyzing the data in a swift demeanor. [With] IBM [Cloud Object] Storage, we can look for
the required data within the storage using it. SQL Query is a feature to
facilitate data exploration, and it is performing its task in a highly efficient
way.
In an honest way, I am not [very] satisfied with its data
transfer, and I believe that these

features need a lot of improvement. This feature is
not going [as] well as we expected, [and] we have to face the consequences, as we
cannot effectively share data. I really want IBM to work on it and make it
more powerful, like all other features.
It provides us with
the diversity of storage class tiers, and is great for the data patterns. Its
mart tiers are useful for anonymous and changing patterns. IBM facilitates [this] in multiple ways, including the storage of data in different tiers. [This] provides utility to its clients in data storage and data access.

Are you happy with IBM Cloud Object Storage's feature set?

Yes

Did IBM Cloud Object Storage live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of IBM Cloud Object Storage go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy IBM Cloud Object Storage again?

Yes

It is not good for
individual users, but [for] organization[s], it is just perfect for data [storage]. For company data, one needs for a secure, reliable
tool that would protect important files. It is cost-effective, so a
company can easily afford it. As far as IBM is concerned, [they have] always
been a name of trust for us.
