Cloud Object Storage as a Service: IBM Cloud Object Storage from Theory to Practice – For developers, IT architects and IT specialists
An IBM Redbooks publication
The digital enterprise has resulted in an explosion of data, and data volumes are expected to grow in zettabyte scale in the next few years. This explosive growth is largely fueled by unstructured data, such as video, social media, photos, and text. IBM® Cloud Object Storage (previously known as Cleversafe®) provides organizations the flexibility, scalability, and simplicity required to store, manage, and access today’s rapidly growing unstructured data.
Cloud Object Storage (COS) provides access to your unstructured data via a self-service portal from anywhere in the world with RESTful APIs, including OpenStack Swift API and S3-compatible API, enterprise availability, and security.
IBM COS is available in the following deployment models:
- Private on-premises object storage
- Dedicated object storage (single-tenant)
- Public object storage (multi-tenant)
- Hybrid object storage (a mix of on-premises, dedicated or public offerings)
This IBM Redbooks® publication focuses on the IBM COS public offering, IBM COS Public Services, and hybrid solutions leveraging this offering.
This book is for solution developers, architects, and IT specialists who are implementing Cloud Object Storage solutions.
