IBM Cloud File Storage features
Simplify entering and storing data
IBM Cloud File Storage is persistent, fast and flexible network-attached, NFS-based file storage you can add to your apps using Kubernetes persistent volumes (PVs). Choose between predefined storage tiers with GB sizes and IOPS that meet the requirements of your workloads.
Features that work for you
Ease your file storage process
Support most workloads and various application needs at your desired level with simple, predefined, per-gigabyte pricing tiers up to 48,000 IOPS.
Manage rapid data changes and well-defined performance requirements. Control both storage capacity and total number of IOPS per storage volume.
Expandable volumes and adjustable IOPS
Increase or decrease your IOPS and expand existing volumes to meet dynamic workload demands. Pay only for what you need, when you need it.
Snapshots and replication
Capture point-in-time snapshots and replicate them to other data centers for business continuity.
Create a new, independent volume from a snapshot. Increase the size and performance for a new volume and immediately manage like other volumes.
Data at rest encryption
Provider-managed encryption at rest by default protects your data at no additional cost or impact to performance.
Mount block devices for high availability and durability while clustering configurations. Avoid data loss during maintenance or failures.
Data center availability
Implement flash-backed storage, encryption for data at rest, snapshots and replication, volume duplication, expandable volumes and adjustable IOPS.
