More Huawei FusionStorage Pros →

"One of Cloud Object Storage's best features is infinite capacity. This is one of the main advantages if you don't want to use your own storage. You also have the ability to write only, write once, and read many. It's like tape storage but software-based. This feature is essential for financial institutions that require that kind of protection if you write backup or data there.""IBM Cloud Object Storage integrates well.""IBM has the most number of additional services, this is the main advantage."

More IBM Cloud Object Storage Pros →

"Their cloud services could be improved."

More Huawei FusionStorage Cons →

"The performance could be better. It isn't bad, but everything is network-based, so you have a performance penalty on the network. You can never achieve the same performance as hardware. That's the disadvantage of cloud storage solutions in general. Cloud performance is one of the main issues clients have.""The performance could improve in IBM Cloud Object Storage. The throughput or objects per second can have degradation.""IBM Cloud storage is not cheap, but it could be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "Pricing is not cheap."
  • "You have the option of a monthly or yearly license. Most customers choose the monthly option. I understand what you would like to say. IBM also lets you choose among four types of Cloud Object Storage. The difference is usage, performance, etc. Of course, high-performance storage is more expensive, while low-performance storage is for cold data, and it's really cheap."
