    As an update, we have delivered an S3 storage adapter, and now are developing support for cloud object storage for documents and mailboxes. While we are prioritizing S3, we have plans to offer Azure as well

    Thank you for your participation in the request for enhancement community. We have evaluated your request and have accepted this idea to our longer term roadmap. Our current roadmap validated by majority of our customer base is to focus on Amazon S3 storage. In v6.0 of IBM Sterling B2B Integrator and IBM Sterling File Gateway we support S3 via a client service. In the near feature we will expand that usage to document storage.

    We will continue to monitor this RFE, as well as input on other clouds (Google, IBM, Azure etc) for prioritization. For further information, please reach out to your IBM sales representative.

    Really need B2B to integrate cloud storage (Azure, Google...)

    This is becoming a common pattern today in the integration world.
