Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

IBM Cloud Object Storage is used to store and manage data in the cloud. The product addresses the need for reliable and scalable storage and provides a way to access data from anywhere in the world. The scope of our use case is to manage data for a large number of users and to make it available to them on demand.
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage is designed to provide high durability and availability for data stored in the cloud. It does this by replicating data across multiple Availability Zones within a region, and by storing data in multiple geographic regions.
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage also provides a number of features that make it well-suited for storing large amounts of data. For example, it offers infinite scalability, meaning that you can store as much data as you need without having to worry about capacity limits. It also offers a variety of data protection features, such as encryption at rest and in transit, and the ability to create snapshots of data for easy recovery in the event of data loss.
  • A few areas where IBM Cloud Object Storage could improve include:
  • Making it easier to manage data and permissions. It can be difficult to keep track of who has access to what data, and what they can do with it.
  • Adding more features for analyzing and visualizing data. It would be helpful to be able to see more information about how data is being used and to have better tools for exploring it.
  • Improving performance. Sometimes the system can be slow, particularly when dealing with large amounts of data.
  • Making it easier to integrate with other systems. It can be challenging to connect IBM Cloud Object Storage to other tools and platforms.
  • The positive impact of IBM Cloud Object Storage on business objectives includes increased efficiency and productivity, reduced costs, and improved customer satisfaction. The negative impact includes increased risk of data loss and decreased security.
Yes, the built-in query capability has been very beneficial. It has allowed us to quickly and easily analyze data sets that we otherwise would have had to spend a lot of time and effort to process manually.
Tests show that data transfer to and from Cloud Object Storage is very effective when using IBM Aspera. Data transfer rates are high and there is little to no latency.
Yes, it has helped us more effectively manage costs.
