IBM Cloud Object Storage

This application-data archive and backup platform offers persistent cloud storage and data encryption by default. Made for electronic records retention, it helps with regulatory compliance.

IBM Cloud Block Storage

IBM Cloud® Block Storage for VPC is a hypervisor-mounted, high-performance data storage solution for your virtual server instances. Block Storage for VPC offers a capacity range that spans from 10 GB to 16,000 GB across all available profiles, allows volume capacity increments in GBs along with IOPS tuning for a volume attached to an instance.

IBM Cloud File Storage

IBM Cloud® File Storage for VPC is a zonal file storage offering that provides NFS-based file storage services. File shares in an availability zone within a region can be created, shared with multiple virtual server instances within the same zone or other zones in your region, across multiple VPCs. You can also limit access to a file share to a specific virtual server instance within a VPC and encrypt the data in transit.

Tech takes kids to Antarctica The Mawson’s Huts Foundation teamed with IBM Business Partner ISW to create an interactive, AI-powered learning platform to educate children about Antarctica. The platform runs on IBM Cloud Foundry and uses IBM Watson® Assistant to interpret questions and deliver answers through videos, images and documents — all stored and retrieved from IBM Cloud Object Storage.
