Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Object Storage

Flexible, cost-effective and scalable cloud storage for unstructured data
  • scalable cloud
  • cost-effective
  • flexible
  • transfer rate
  • different workloads
  • manage costs
  • security
  • innovation
  • flexibility
I think it is very beneficial because of the robustness and security it provides us.
I think it is a point where the transfer rate could be optimized.
It is very beneficial, it is an aspect that I think is a great advantage because not all the information should be in the fastest storage, placing the information in its correct place helps us to optimize storage and final costs.

  • IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers
  • Veeam on IBM Cloud
The good thing about working with IBM is because they have the whole set of products for all needs, they all work as one.
From my experience I recommend this product, IBM Cloud Object Storage, when we need flexible storage, and maybe not recommended when we need to manage costs.

IBM Cloud Support and Implementation

The implementation of this product took me longer than expected.
We don't use IBM professional services to implement IBM Cloud Object Storage.
Basic (free) - we are a company that makes implementations, so we must learn how to do things
IBM support is very good, they always help me with the implementation of IBM Storage Insights and other products that we have previously implemented.
  • Central Documentation and Learning Hub
  • IBM Cloud Docs
  • IBM Cloud product demos and tutorial videos
IBM documentation is excellent, it is very useful
IBM support and documentation make it easy
