What is IBM Cloud Object Storage?
IBM Cloud Object Storage supports exponential data growth and cloud-native workloads with built-in high-speed file transfer capabilities, cross-region offerings and integrated services. The IBM Aspera high-speed data transfer option makes it easy to transfer data, and flexible storage class tiers help manage costs while meeting data access needs.
How it’s used
Backup and recovery
AI and big data analytics
IBM Cloud SQL Query
A serverless, interactive querying service for analyzing data.
IBM Cloud Object Storage highlights
Smart Tier automates tier classification and cost optimization based on data activity. It’s ideal for unknown or changing data usage patterns.
High durability and resiliency
Built for 99.99999999% data durability. Select the resiliency option for the location, availability and performance you need. Individual results vary.
Data protection and security
Manage encryption keys with IBM Key Protect. Set role-based policies and access permission with IBM Cloud Identity and Access Management Services.
Fast data transfer
Securely move data to IBM Cloud Object Storage with the natively integrated Aspera high-speed data transfer option. Upload data at no cost.
Query data in place
Analyze data fast in IBM Cloud Object Storage with IBM SQL Query. Tap into your data simply to extract, transform and load (ETL) data.
Immutable object storage
Preserve electronic records and protect data against deletion or modification.
Manage storage cost by limiting bucket usage. Once the limit is reached, you can’t add data unless you extend the limit. Set a threshold-based alert.
Keep your own key
Integration with IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Crypto Services offers enhanced data security, encryption options and more granular control and authority.
With a faster restore option of up to two hours, you can access your dormant data faster, while saving on storage costs for your long-term data.
