What is IBM Cloud Object Storage?
Cloud Object Storage makes it possible to store practically limitless amounts of data simply and cost effectively. It is commonly used for data archiving and backup, web and mobile applications, and as scalable, persistent storage for analytics. Objects are stored in tiers (hot, cool, cold, flex and archive), depending on how often data access is needed, and it offers robust security capabilities and high durability. The integrated Aspera high-speed data transfer option makes it easy to transfer data to and from Cloud Object Storage, and query-in-place functionality, allows you to run analytics directly on your data.
