Consolidate data on premises, from edge to cloud
IBM Cloud® Object Storage provides a software-defined hyperscale storage solution which runs on premises. This industry-leading storage solution integrates with data on the edge, in your data center or on a private cloud.
New efficiencies that lower costs; increase performance
Customers can lower storage costs up to 12%, using new 18 TB SMR drives and increase throughput up to 55 GB/s for a 12 node cluster, with up to 300% better performance for reads and up to 150% for writes.
Leverage IBM Spectrum® Discover for AI workflow
With new integrated connections to IBM Spectrum Discover metadata is automatically populated from IBM Cloud Object Storage into "Actionable Data." Search billions of objects in seconds using multiple search criteria. Data can also be tagged for future analysis and AI workflows.
Store objects and files at significantly lower cost
The dsNet® software within Cloud Object Storage uses patented information dispersal algorithms (IDA) to store unstructured objects at petabyte scale and beyond. The dsNet IDA uses erasure coding rather than replication to meet data storage reliability and availability requirements.
Reduce the complexity of managing large-scale storage
IBM provides an object storage solution that lowers TCO and reduces the complexity of managing petabyte or even exabyte-scale storage. This solution offers lower costs at start-up while delivering the scalability to ensure rapid growth in unstructured data will not outgrow storage capacity.
IBM Cloud Object Storage brings data from edge devices with a virtual machine that provides a SMB or NFS interface to object storage.
A leader in object storage for 5 years
Learn why IBM was named a leader in 2020 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage, for five years in a row.
Built-in industry compliance for safe data protection
WORM functionality allows data to be tamper proof. Customers can easily create a storage vault with a retention policy and lock down objects simply by putting them in the vault. The system supports strict SEC17a-4f requirements using standard S3 interface for access and uploads.
Flexible local or geo-dispersed data protection
The information dispersal technology requires only a single copy of information to be stored to support up to 8 nines availability and continuous access to your data.
Engineered for massive scalability
Get started with as little as 75 TB and grow to exabytes with investment protection. Cloud Object Storage is designed to scale easily by simply adding storage nodes for capacity or accessor nodes for throughput.
Easy to use software and flexible configurations
Leverage your hardware and management tools with IBM software to lower your costs and simplify your environment with the massive scale and efficiency of IBM Cloud Object Storage.
Autodelete with policy enabled object expiration
With new data life-cycle management, a simple policy can be set to automatically delete an object or objects from a bucket.
