IBM® Cloud Object Storage is a breakthrough platform that helps solve unstructured data challenges for companies worldwide. It is designed to provide scalability, availability, security, manageability, flexibility and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Ultra-secure with built-in compliance features, Cloud Object Storage is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the securities industry for preserving records in non-rewriteable and non-erasable format, applying retention policies and legal holds. It can be deployed in multiple configurations and is compatible with a wide range of servers.
Offers 72 TB to greater than an exabyte, and easy to scale capability or performance.
Provides encrypted data with IBM keys or yours, plus FIPS 140-2 certified and secure write-once read many (WORM) policy options.
Access data concurrently from any location—always online, virtually management free.
Delivers geo-protected data with Information Dispersal Algorithm (IDA) efficiency; available as software only or fully supported solutions.
With new integrated connections to IBM Spectrum Discover metadata is automatically populated from IBM Cloud Object Storage into "Actionable Data" and massive amounts of data is easily searchable with capabilities to search billions of objects in second.
IBM Cloud Object Storage offers a comprehensive and cost-effective object storage solution to address growing unstructured data storage challenges across a wide range of use cases including analytics, archiving, backup, cloud storage and content distribution.
Leverage your hardware and management tools with IBM software to lower your costs and simplify your environment with the massive scale and efficiency of Cloud Object Storage.
The dsNet® software within Cloud Object Storage uses patented information dispersal algorithms (IDA) to store unstructured objects at petabyte scale and beyond, at significantly lower cost than traditional storage systems. This is possible because the dsNet IDA uses erasure coding rather than replication to meet data storage reliability and availability requirements.
Cloud Object Storage is designed to scale easily by simply adding storage nodes for capacity or accessor nodes for throughput.
WORM functionality allows data to be tamper proof. Customers can easily create a storage vault with a retention policy and lock down objects simply by putting them in the vault.
Cloud Object Storage has been ranked number one by Gartner for all Object Storage use cases and has over 70 certified solutions to modernise your IT infrastructure and bring new value to your business.
Cloud Object Storage offers a scalable, secure destination for backing up your critical data. It reduces the cost of backups while still retaining immediate access.
Consolidate archive data and store in IBM Cloud Object Storage, where it is affordable, permanently available, and protected.
Build integrated apps using compute runtimes and micro services and Cloud Object Storage services for data storage. SDKs support API functions.
IBM Cloud Object Storage offers worldwide locations for your data storage needs.
IBM Cloud Object Storage service provides three resiliency options for geographic coverage.
Your data is stored across three regions within a geography for regional concurrent access and highest availability.
