Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This product is very good because it is accessible in remote locations, and anyone can deploy from any place.""The price of IBM Cloud is most valuable for us. The service is personable and gives us a good rapport. I can't say it's the best, but it was enough for our needs.""The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good.""One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware.""This is a predictable and dependable service.""There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product.""It is easy to deploy what you need for the initial setup""For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors."

"We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications.""Provides support throughout the whole platform.""The solution provides a lot of flexibility to the application team for running their applications in the container platform, without needing to monitor the entire infrastructure all the time. It automatically scales and automatically self-heals. There is also a mechanism to alert the team in case it is over-committing or overutilizing the application."

Cons
"I would like to see a more user-friendly deployment process in the next release of this solution.""Maybe performance enhancers and reports could be better improved. If they do so, it would be better. Of all the drawbacks I saw, this would be the biggest enhancement.""The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right.""There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved.""They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities.""It could be more secure.""The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement.""They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved."

"Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions.""The solution only offers support for one server.""Documentation and technical support could be improved. The product is good, but when we raise a case with support—say we are having an image issue—the support is not really up to the mark. It is difficult to get support... When we raise a case, their support people will hesitate to get on a call or a screen-sharing session. That is a major drawback when it comes to OpenShift."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are using the trial version of this solution, so we have not paid anything.""The price of IBM Cloud is very cheap compared to competitors AWS and Azure.""The licensing fees are straightforward and predictable.""Pricing is not as fair as Amazon or Azure.""In order to be competitive, you have to commit to a contract for at least one year, but you pay a fixed monthly fee."

"I don't deal with the cost part, but I know that the cost is very high when compared to other products. They charge for CPU and memory, but we don't worry about it."
