Cloud Design Engineer Kyle Bryan explains how to use Cloud Object Storage infrastructure component in Bluemix and offers tips on how to back up Windows and Linux.
Object storage is a great way to cost-effectively store large volumes of unstructured data like you would need for analytics, IoT, social, cognitive, and mobile workloads. With the Cloud Object Storage infrastructure component, you can store and access your unstructured data via a self-service portal and APIs. The component is built on IBM’s innovative Cloud Object Storage system (with support for the S3 API) or OpenStack Swift.
Inside Cloud Object Storage
Learn the basics of object storage and take a fast technical deep dive into the Cloud Object Storage infrastructure component architecture.
How to back up Windows
Learn how to use the infrastructure component with open sources tools and how to build in some automation. Explore Duplicati, free backup software to store encrypted backups online.
How to back up Linux
For Linux backups, learn about rsnapshot, a filesystem snapshot utility based on rsync that makes it easy to make periodic snapshots of local and remote machines over ssh. You’ll also learn about S3cmd, a command-line S3 client for uploading, retrieving, and managing data.
