IBM Cloud Object Storage is built for cloud scale

Unlock the value of your business data

Fuel digital innovation with object storage that can deliver the flexibility, scalability and simplicity you need to manage data growth. Choose the deployment option that fits your workload requirements and scales quickly as your business needs change. And discover the advantages of cloud object storage that give you unmatched choice, control and efficiency.

Uniquely flexible

Choose among on-premises, dedicated, hybrid or public cloud options. You can efficiently move workloads across these environments to scale with the changing needs of your business. In addition, use a common software infrastructure with complete license and interface flexibility:

  • On premises: Deploy object storage on premises for maximum security, reliability, performance and control. Our software runs on industry-standard hardware for flexibility and simplified management within your data center that is governed by your established processes and procedures.
  • Public cloud: Easily deploy object storage on the IBM Cloud to optimize cost and scale, or deploy it on dedicated bare metal servers to not only optimize cost and scale, but also performance and isolation.
  • Hybrid cloud: For optimal isolation, expanded capacity, increased efficiency and superior disaster recovery, extend your IBM Cloud Object Storage system beyond on-premises deployment by leveraging the IBM® SoftLayer® Cloud data centers to create a self-managed hybrid system.

Uniquely scalable

Scale storage to any size without compromise. The web-scale storage platform enables performance and capacity to scale independently—reaching exabyte levels and beyond:

  • Scalable capacity: Our single addressable global namespace delivers a unified, single point of management and access that can scale beyond the limits of traditional centralized metadata servers.
  • Scale locally or globally: Leverage our 40 global cloud centers on an open, scalable and secure high-speed network, delivering data when you need it, where you need it.

Uniquely simple

Manage massive volumes of data and streamline your storage with a new level of simplicity:

  • Simple to store: Optimize efficiency with storage that slices and disperses a single copy of data—helping eliminate duplicates and reduce cost, cooling, maintenance and personnel requirements.
  • Easy to manage: Deploy on premises, in the cloud, or across both, and manage each through a single pane of glass for unified storage management. Enjoy multilevel monitoring and built-in data integrity.
