What is IBM Cloud File Storage?

Deploy and customize flash-backed NFS-based file storage from 25 GB to 12,000 GB capacity with up to 48,000 IOPS. Increase storage capacity or adjust your performance on the fly to quickly adjust to changes in workload demands.

IBM Cloud File Storage features

Flexible customization

Choose predefined Endurance tiers with per-GB pricing — ideal for most workloads. Or, fine-tune your environment with allocated IOPS — ideal for workloads with well-defined performance requirements.

Smart and safe management

Stay confident with storage designed to protect against data loss during maintenance or failures with at-rest data encryption, volume duplication, and snapshots and replication.

Predictable billing

Lock in your costs without the surprise of hidden fees or additional charges. Ensure lower costs with terabyte increments. For greater flexibility, choose between hourly or monthly billing for long-term or short-term storage needs.

Global footprint

Provision file storage alongside your cloud servers in IBM Cloud® data centers around the world.

IOPS provisioning options


Provision with predefined, per-gigabyte pricing tiers up to 48,000 IOPS — ideal for most workloads. Starting at USD 0.05 per GB | 0.25 IOPS per GB.
