IBM Cloud® Object Storage storage classes, natively integrated IBM® Aspera® high-speed data transfer capabilities and integrated partner solutions make it cost-effective and easy to move and archive data in IBM Cloud Object Storage.
Archive data to IBM Cloud® and realize cost savings directly related to reducing IT infrastructure and operational costs, and help make data that was once out of reach accessible to your organization.
Store cold data to help reduce the cost of expensive network-attached storage (NAS) and take advantage of the global data access and scale available through cloud storage.
Store non-read and write-intensive data with two restore options: the archive option for lowest cost with restore in 12 hours or less and the accelerated archive option for faster restore in two hours or less.
Use the archive option to avoid upfront costs and virtually eliminate the cost and burden of maintenance.
Use data archiving on object storage to help manage regulatory requirements for data compliance. Adhere to various compliance mandates and store data for an extended duration.
Preserve large amounts of rich media content, such as images or videos, inexpensively on traditional storage.
Use data archiving on object storage, such as genome data or IoT data, that needs to be preserved for future use.
Apply age-based policies to transition objects to lower-cost archive storage to reduce costs with smart tier, standard, vault and cold vault.
Get data storage for as low as USD 0.00099 per GB per month and restore at USD 0.02 per GB.
Use the simple API with support for S3 API constructs for transition lifecycle and restore. Write applications with IBM Cloud Object Storage SDKs.
Implement data-integrity mechanisms to check, validate and apply self-repair capabilities. It's designed for data durability of 99.999999999%. Individual results vary.
