IBM Announces New Capabilities to Help On-Premises Customers Effectively Manage Compliance Data with Object Storage
Customers Can Now Deploy Entry-level Cloud Object Storage With the Ability to Scale to Larger Configurations
Oct 9, 2017
ARMONK, N.Y., Oct. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced two significant milestones in making the on-premises IBM Cloud Object Storage System much more accessible for customers with new compliance-enabled vaults and concentrated dispersal mode capabilities.
Customers, especially those in regulated industries who are typically large private cloud users, need a better, more efficient way to store their growing compliance data. The financial services, healthcare and government sectors often have strict regulatory obligations that effectively limit them to a smaller number of choices when it comes to cost effectively storing compliance data in their company data centers. Another key barrier to leveraging on-premises object storage is the lack of lower capacity, lower cost options for companies that want to get started with a smaller object storage system and have the flexibility to scale as needed. Currently, a financial services provider that needs object storage capabilities for regulatory compliance data less than 300TB is left with very limited cost-effective options.
IBM is designing capabilities to change the economics for companies that manage compliance data on-premises while also reducing the costs of entry with two new object storage capabilities that help customers:
"The new on-premises object storage capabilities are designed to expand use cases for IBM Cloud Object Storage to archives requiring protection against data deletion and modification, and to significantly lower the cost of a system with capacity as low as 72TB, for any use case, making initial deployment more attainable without losing the ability to scale up as usage expands," said Rob McCammon, Offering Leader, IBM Cloud Object Storage.
The new compliance-enabled vaults and concentrated dispersal mode capability is currently planned to be generally available December 1, 2017.
