What is On-premises Cloud Object Storage?

IBM Cloud Object Storage System provides highly scalable, cost-efficient storage.  Deploy in your own data centers using IBM appliances or IBM software running on industry-standard, certified hardware.

IBM Cloud Object Storage System features

Cost–efficient Geo-Dispersed Data Protection

The System’s Information dispersal technology requires only a single copy of data to be stored to support up to 8 nines availability and continuous-access to your data. 

Engineered for Scalability

Get started with Cloud Object Storage with as little as 72TB and grow to exabytes with investment protection. The system is designed to scale easily by simply adding storage nodes for capacity or accessor nodes for more throughput.

Highly Secure

The System protects data at rest using automatic AES-256 encryption and SHA-256 hash and secures data in motion using TLS/SSL or SNMPv3 with AES encryption.

WORM for Compliance Data

With Write-once-read-many (WORM) functionality, data can be locked down and set to be tamper proof. Customers can easily create a storage vault with a retention policy and lock down objects just by putting them in the vault.

Software Defined and Hardware-aware

Deploy an IBM Cloud Object Storage System using either IBM fully configured and supported appliances or deploy as a software solution in your data center on certified X86 hardware from the top storage vendors.

Simplified Management

Easily manage data at virtually any capacity with a small staff. Our robust management GUI allows you to easily provision, monitor, troubleshoot and secure the storage system with minimal intervention.
