What is Immutable Object Storage?

Immutable Object Storage by IBM Cloud provides WORM (Write Once Read Many) capabilities with a retention policy that can be enforced for long-term retention of data. This solution helps our clients with their requirements around the preservation of electronic data (records) in a non-rewritable and non-erasable format.

Now available: Immutable Object Storage in US Cross Region

Earlier in 2019, IBM Cloud Object Storage introduced this capability for our Regional resiliency. This enabled our clients to govern and enforce the retention duration for objects stored and prevent object deletion and modification until the expiration of the retention period and removal of all associated legal holds.

Today, IBM is pleased to extend Immutable Object Storage support to our US Cross Region. Clients with an IBM Cloud Object Storage Standard plan can now add a retention policy when creating buckets with US Cross Region resiliency.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
