Durable, fast and flexible NFS-based file storage.
Get total control and help minimize costs with flash-backed1 File Storage. Create file shares in granular increments —from 1000GB to 12000GB—and provision it all with a variety of flexible and power-based options.
Choose Endurance tiers for simple, predefined performance levels with per-GB pricing— ideal for most general purpose workloads. Or, build a fine-tuned environment with allocated IOPS from Performance options—ideal for well-understood performance requirements.
Customize to the Max
Choose easy to edit scaling options based on your particular size and performance needs.

Provision your volumes alongside your cloud servers in IBM Cloud datacenters around the world.
Flash-backed storage is available with 2 IOPS/GB tier options and higher and is currently available in DAL09, DAL10, DAL12, DAL13, SJC03 and WDC04 datacenters.
48,000 IOPS provisioned within Performance options is currently available in DAL09, DAL10, DAL12, DAL13, SJC03 and WDC04 datacenters.
Encryption for data at rest is currently available in DAL09, DAL10, DAL12, DAL13, SJC03 and WDC04 datacenters. All encrypted File Storage volumes provisioned in the select data centers have a different mount point than non-encrypted volumes. View the mount point information in the Volume Details page in the UI as well as access the correct mount point via an API call: SoftLayer_Network_Storage:getNetworkMountAddress() to ensure you are using the correct mount point for both your encrypted and non-encrypted file storage volumes.
20GB-4TB limit available in select datacenters.
Snapshots and replication provisioned within Performance options is currently available in DAL09, DAL10, DAL12, DAL13, SJC03 and WDC04 datacenters.
