Automated our manually processes saving us time. Needs to reduce custom coding during setup.

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is infrastructure automation, like self-service. We utilize all the blades that we had available in the computes, mostly going into VMware vCenter. When I have been using it, it has been mostly for private compute.

Pros and Cons

  • "We provided the ability to request virtual machines to our end users. Before, this was a very manual process, which took engineers to do. Now, it's an automated process."
  • "VMware needs to make it to where it is not as custom. Right now, you spend a lot of time making the services work. In order to get it up and running initially, that takes time."

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you give yourself enough time to implement or replace all your use cases as a business. The solution requires specific expertise with it to be able to use it effectively. I would rate this product as a seven (out of 10).

Provides stable backup for our databases and has good technical support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to backup everything in our data center. This includes VMware environments, Microsoft Hyper-V, Unix machines including HP UNIX, and AIX, as well as normal machines for Windows. The deployment model we used was on-premises.

Pros and Cons

  • "We are satisfied with the technical support, we have no issues."
  • "SMB storage and HPC is not compatible and it should be supported by IBM Spectrum Computing."

What other advice do I have?

We are partners with IBM, and we renew our partnership yearly. I tell everyone that they should go with IBM Spectrum Computing. The cost is high but I like this solution. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
