What is most valuable?

One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware. Customers do not want to have a full data center but they can order virtual machines… more »

How has it helped my organization?

There are several advantages to migrating to a cloud-based data center. Some of these are that you don't need 24/7 power or power backup units, local staff for maintenance, or to handle your own… more »

What needs improvement?

There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved.

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

The price of IBM Cloud is very cheap compared to competitors AWS and Azure. The licensing fees are billed on a monthly basis and some costs vary between cities. For example, data centers in smaller… 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?

The suitability of this solution depends on your organizational requirements and how you want to function, as well as the policies. One example is that a lot of financial institutions do not want to… more »

What is most valuable?

The artificial intelligence helps with the analytic data and can parse information faster than you can set it up. The analysis portion of the solution is very important to our business.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to be more autonomous. It should let the DL go to allow for more jobs on the cloud. It could have a better interface as well.

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

We looked at Oracle as well. We switched to IBM because IBM had a professional approach. They cared about our business and what we could do. The way they were preoccupied with our concerns as a customer, as well as a service provider, impressed us. Their response was very fast and they came up with… more »

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud version of the solution. We have Amazon as a provider. The solution is very stable and technical assistance is very fast in their response. The service offered by IBM is highly respected, as well as the policy of the service provided. It's the best on the market for me and… more »

What is most valuable?

The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good. In terms of performance, resiliency, and availability, it is second to none.

What needs improvement?

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.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate IBM Cloud a nine out of ten. The only deficiency is the deployment. IBM is very focused on hybrid cloud as its main strength. It is useful with other IBM products. If you want something that's out of the box and simple that you don't need to do anything complex with, IBM Cloud is too big for you. If you're looking to do any mix with anything on-prem and if all you want to do is a… more »

What is most valuable?

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. We went with this solution because we were concerned about our code and application security. We would not jeopardize platform security… more »

How has it helped my organization?

IBM Cloud supports both dynamic and static content for our applications.

What needs improvement?

I need a watch to describe the number of required improvements for the IBM Cloud service. We use the tools. It takes almost a day to configure each one of the work products. Maybe performance enhancers and reports could be better improved. If they do so, it would be better. Of all the drawbacks I… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate IBM Cloud with an eight.

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. It is very clear and easy to understand the interfaces, services, and easy to understand the pricing. They can be sure how… more »

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 »
