IBM Storage Systems at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Feb 11, 2021
We use the vendor component. Two years ago, I worked as a technical lead and I expanded the business partner channel. We found some new clients requiring cloud object storage, but unfortunately, IBM didn't have a data center in the required location. IBM compares favorably in terms of price, however. A lot of companies have this same problem, in terms of a lack of data centers. Some Polish businesses are thinking about adapting their infrastructure to the cloud, but there is not enough uptake at the moment, unfortunately.

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. If you're adding storage, it costs the same as buying a new one. You don't get discounts. It's no problem to add extra capacity, but it really depends on the type of storage you are using. Of course, the final cost depends on the type you are using and how much space you'll need in the future.
