The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

IBM Cloud Databases

This is my current go-to solution where a relational database in the cloud is a requirement. The IBM Cloud Databases PostgreSQL implementation is particular attractive vs. alternatives available from other cloud providers because of relational databases scale "up" well (while generally not scaling "out" well or at all) and IBM is able to offer the ultimate scale-up, the recently available, Hyper Protect DBAAS. I can build today on IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL with the knowledge that in the future, if needed, I can scale up to a solution running on massive Z-Series hardware that is at the same time much more secure (particularly from side-channel attack) than solutions running on Intel hardware.

Pros

1010data

  • To "pool" their data for market analysis
  • Very large data analysis
  • Performance and scalability
Henry PAN | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Databases

  • The ease of setup was effortless. For anyone with development experience, a few simple questions such as name and login data will get you set up.
  • The web application to manage cluster settings, billing settings and even introspect the data was simple and most importantly worked all the time. This can not always be said for web interfaces of other products.

Cons

1010data

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Databases

  • Better cost reports, before just increasing to another tier, thus increasing the price. This is critical for early stage startups, where budget is tight.
  • Add more data center options. As a comparison, a similar service, Aiven.io has dozen more options than Compose (basically all big cloud providers). We moved from AWS to Digital Ocean, which made us stop using Compose, since Compose forces us to be either on IBM or AWS.

Support is helpful enough, but we haven't always had questions answered in a satisfactory manner. At one time we realized that Compose had stopped taking database snapshots on its two-per-day schedule, and had in fact not taken one for many days. Support recognized the problem and it was fixed, but the lack of proactive checks and the inability to share exactly what happened has caused us to look elsewhere for production work loads

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.

IBM Cloud Databases

MongoDB is the primary db we use, and Meteor is the primary application framework. Configuring MongoDB to fully support Meteor oplog tailing is a challenge - and when we started looking, Compose was those only MongoDB provider that had turnkey support for Meteor.Since we wanted managed Apache Kafka deployments and Compose doesn't offer Kafka, we found Eventador.io, which offers managed Kafka exclusively. It's a much smaller company and they're constantly updating their GUI console and adding/removing features - which is a mixed blessing. On one hand, it's great to get constant improvements, it's also a little confusing when thing changes or features are removed. Compose on the other hand, was completely "boring" - it was a mature product that did want we needed. Which is exactly what you want out of infrastructure...

Return on Investment

1010data

  • Positive impact on help business make a data-drive decision
  • Positive impact on big data analysis
  • Negative impact on user friendly
Henry PAN | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Databases

  • At the beginning, VERY positive. I didn't know Mongo very well when I started this project, and I needed to get a POC up very quickly. Compose let me basically ignore all database management.
  • Compose basically kept up its end of the deal... until a few months ago when we started pushing the envelope. Latency problems and, despite digging deep into documentation, etc, unable to really understand if/how much our Compose instance was to blame. In the end it wasn't, but trial and error was about all I was able to do with Compose.
  • Globally, Compose had a very good ROI, since it allowed me to offload DB admin at a moment when having to do it would have seriously slowed our progress.
