IBM Cloud File Storage features

Simplify entering and storing data

IBM Cloud File Storage is persistent, fast and flexible network-attached, NFS-based file storage you can add to your apps using Kubernetes persistent volumes (PVs). Choose between predefined storage tiers with GB sizes and IOPS that meet the requirements of your workloads.

Features that work for you

Ease your file storage process

Endurance provisioning

Support most workloads and various application needs at your desired level with simple, predefined, per-gigabyte pricing tiers up to 48,000 IOPS.

Performance provisioning

Manage rapid data changes and well-defined performance requirements. Control both storage capacity and total number of IOPS per storage volume.

Expandable volumes and adjustable IOPS

Increase or decrease your IOPS and expand existing volumes to meet dynamic workload demands. Pay only for what you need, when you need it.

Snapshots and replication

Capture point-in-time snapshots and replicate them to other data centers for business continuity.

Volume duplication

Create a new, independent volume from a snapshot. Increase the size and performance for a new volume and immediately manage like other volumes.

Data at rest encryption

Provider-managed encryption at rest by default protects your data at no additional cost or impact to performance.

Concurrent access

Mount block devices for high availability and durability while clustering configurations. Avoid data loss during maintenance or failures.

Data center availability

Implement flash-backed storage, encryption for data at rest, snapshots and replication, volume duplication, expandable volumes and adjustable IOPS.
