Features

Managed

IBM Cloud Object Storage Dedicated Service comes with a dedicated team of IBM experts to offer a public cloud–like user experience on a completely isolated, cloud object storage infrastructure. These IBM Experts perform the day-to-day operations and change management—for example, access control credentials, health management and provisioning. Gain access to IBM experts through phone, email and an online ticket system.

Flexible

IBM Cloud Object Storage Dedicated service is designed to be customizable based on capacity, durability and resiliency requirements. Take advantage of its flexibility, including a choice of data centers for deployment. Meet a range of storage needs that include data storage for cloud-based native-active applications such as Internet of Things and mobile, or less-frequently accessed unstructured data such as archiving, backup, and content repositories and compliance data.

Scalable

Start at a minimum initial capacity of 1 PB and scale up to virtually unlimited capacity as your needs increase. Scale your capacity usage up or down at any time and pay for only what you use.

Resilient

Avoid downtime due to component failures or during hardware or software maintenance. Design options include cross-regional deployments designed to maintain availability during large-scale power outages and link or site failures.

Secure

Protect data at rest using automatic provider-side AES-256 encryption and SHA-256 hash. Secure data in motion using built-in, carrier-grade TLS/SSL or SNMPv3 with AES encryption. Also generate and manage credentials for each user access, and use digital certificates to protect all network connections against rogue attacks.

Resiliency Options to meet your needs

Deploy your dedicated service within one region or across multiple regions, based on resiliency requirements specific to your workloads.
