What is most valuable?

This solution is very accessible and you can deploy applications from remote locations.

What needs improvement?

This solution can be very slow, which was a big problem for us. Deploying applications took a long time. I would like to see a more user-friendly deployment process in the next release of this solution. It was very complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the trial version of this solution, so we have not paid anything.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also use Amazon Cloud. In the past, I was using Google Cloud, Amazon, and IBM Bluemix (now IBM Cloud). I compared all of them and found that IBM Cloud was the best product. Amazon is a little more stable than the others.

What other advice do I have?

There was a mix of versions in our project, with some people using the trial version and others using the paid version of this solution. I think that the full, paid version was better. This product is very good because it is accessible in… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with AWS and Azure clouds. IBM Cloud is the cheapest of these three, and I found it to be more flexible in terms of third-party integration.

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

The features that I have found most useful with this product are their reliability and their support.

What needs improvement?

An improvement that I would like to see is better configuration capability. So far, our service is only large enough to demand one server. Their service and their website is okay in servicing our needs. We find it reliable and user-friendly. However, features wise, they could enhance their support… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing fees are straightforward and predictable.

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would have for people considering this service would be that they should try it. If they are something like a small enterprise, they can use this IBM solution.
