IBM Object Storage, now available on Bluemix, can simply and securely store and access growing volumes of unstructured data

ARMONK, NY – 07 Dec 2015 — / — IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced IBM Object Storage, an IBM Cloud service which allows developers to interactively compose and connect object storage into their apps. This service provides app creators with a fully scalable, API-accessible platform to store and retrieve unstructured data, as well as build apps around this content. Available in beta on Bluemix, IBM’s Cloud Platform, Object Storage also allows developers to access this valuable data from external apps.

IBM Object Storage makes it faster, easier and more secure for developers to tap into and store growing volumes of unstructured data, including content such as images, documents and videos. It’s estimated that out of the 2.5 billion gigabytes of data which are created every day, 80 percent is comprised of unstructured content.

To help solve the challenge of how to capture, store and gain intelligence from rapidly increasing amounts of unstructured data, IBM has built a strong portfolio of technologies – including IBM Object Storage and its recent acquisition of Cleversafe. Cleversafe’s portfolio allows businesses to efficiently store and manage massive amounts of data throughout their organization, enabling them to scale and connect into large-scale content repositories, backup, archives and more.

Through tapping the OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) API for API-based data access and OpenStack Identity (Keystone) for authentication, IBM Object Storage offers developers:

  • The ability to compose and bind apps to object files – both inside and outside of Bluemix
  • Identity management and authentication to help protect against unauthorized access to object-based data.
  • A service dashboard user interface for simple management
  • Object browser, drag-and-drop upload and download from the developer’s desktop
  • Industry-adopted OpenStack Swift API and SDKs to access the object store
  • Service keys to access and use Object Storage with external apps and services
  • Security isolation for each object storage instance within Bluemix

Find IBM Object Storage in the Bluemix catalog, or view an overview video on the IBM Bluemix Developers Community blog.

IBM launched Bluemix with a $1 billion investment in 2014, growing rapidly to become the largest public Cloud Foundry deployment in the world. The open-standards-based Bluemix catalog includes over 120 tools and services spanning categories of big data, mobile, Watson, analytics, integration, DevOps, security and Internet of Things. IBM Bluemix was recently shown to be the “developers’ choice” of PaaS, and is growing 10-times faster than the overall PaaS market, according to research firm ESG.
