New IBM Cloud Service for Apps Targeting Unstructured Data

IBM introduced a new, Bluemix cloud service that lets developers interactively compose and connect object storage into their apps.

IBM Object Storage 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.  It also allows developers to access this valuable data from external apps.

IBM said that to help capture, store and gain intelligence from rapidly increasing amounts of unstructured data, it has built a 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.
