Before starting the implementation, I would advise others to take enough time in planning its implementation, especially the sizing. I would rate IBM Power Systems a seven out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with IBM. In general, I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten so far. While every organization has to choose its options based on their requirements, I can say that this particular solution has met our needs quite well.

I would say if you are not using the IBMi solution, you are missing something. You should at least know about this solution. I was an IT support previously, and When I started to use IBM Power Systems, I fell in love with this machine due the professionalism, solidity and high scalability . The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is how not to have a single instance of failure. These machines don't die and don't have any problems. For me, it was astonishing to be able to switch disks or the power supply without turning off the machine. It is a reliable and great solution. I would rate IBM Power Systems a nine out of ten.

We typically use the latest versions of the solution. We tend to follow whatever the customer requirement is. They are inclined to work by night in the office on the latest product that IBM is offering. We work with on-premise as, over here at least, people are not too inclined towards the cloud. They prefer having hardware of their own in their own data centers. I'd recommend this solution to other organizations. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at an eight. Better pricing would be one thing that may convince me to give it higher marks.

Before implementing a solution, analyze the good points and benefits of different solutions, and make sure that the solution meets your requirements. I would rate IBM Power Systems an eight out of ten.

It's nothing to be scared of it. It might be completely different than what you have been using, but IBM Power Systems is very stable and supports the systems that we have already been using. The Private Cloud IAS offering is included free for all enterprise customers. It is easy to administrate and manage IBM Power Systems to make the process of moving from VMware or other environments easy. When you get Power Systems, you get points and after the initial deployment that is performed by IBM, using those points, you can get five days or 10 days of service from IBM. Those services include Power Systems training. If you have enough points, you can get IBM to deliver training. I would rate Power Systems an eight out of ten based on the new features that were launched recently. They made it available on the cloud. A customer getting a Power Systems in their environment on plan is very expensive. You can create a VM on the IBM or Google cloud, running on IBM Power Systems. Or you can get the PEP2 client code. There is a little hardware cost.

When you implement the IBM Global Systems, you must take care of the small things. If you do it perfectly at the start, it will give you more stability at the end of the day. If you don't take care of the small technicalities then in the middle somewhere, there will be high load on the system and you will face issues. IBM has the best solution in the market and is always comparable to any service provider in the market. I always rate them 10 out of 10 because it's the best product.

We tend to use the on-premises deployment model as cloud versions are not very popular in Jordan. We primarily sell the solution to clients.

I would recommend, going for this solution, because it is one of the best solutions available in the Unix market now. I would rate it eight out of 10. The reason is, as I said, the performance and stability, and the security included with the product. In terms of selecting a vendor, we first go through the product features and evaluate them and see that the product suits our environment. Then, we look at the various product selection criteria, like ease of use and implementation. We also look at the cost, how costly it is to support in the future.
