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.

We use the on-premises deployment model. My main advice to others considering implementing the solution is to use this product directly with IBM equipment like virtual tape libraries and IBM tapes. When we use this product together with hardware from other vendors, there are many, many issues. I would rate the solution five out of ten.

For now, I am pleased with this solution. I have been using this solution for twelve years and I know how it works. At this time I don't have any suggestions for additional features to be added, except for the bad managing of tapes. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
