Storage for the IBM Cloud
IBM Cloud Object Storage provides unstructured data storage for cloud applications. Libraries and SDKs support a common set of S3 API functions for connecting new applications to scalable cloud storage and integrating your data into other services on the IBM Watson and Cloud Platform.
IAM Policies - Bucket level access management
IBM Identity and Access Management (IAM) integration allows for granular access control at the bucket level using role-based policies.
All data is encrypted at-rest and in-flight by default. Keys are automatically managed by default, but can optionally be self-managed or managed using IBM Key Protect*. (*Key Protect is only available for buckets created in the US South (Dallas) and EU GB (London) regions.)
Regional and Cross Region resiliency options
Select the best resiliency option for your data. Choose "Cross Region" to store unstructured data across three regions, or choose "Regional" resiliency to store your data within a single region.
Data storage classes for Active, Less Active, Archive and Dynamic workloads
Choose storage classes for frequently accessed data, occasionally accessed data and long-term data retention with Standard, Vault, and Cold Vault. Or, choose Flex class for dynamic data access needs that fluctuate month to month.
