Amazon Elastic Transcoder

Amazon Elastic Transcoder is very well suited for scripted pipelines and handling media file transcoding. It works in the background and is fast. Large media encodes are handled very well

IBM Power Systems Virtual Server

This product excels when websites have to be operational all the time with little, if any, downtime. Conversely, if your servers are already using Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud, there is really no reason to switch over since this product excels at working with other IBM products in your tech ecosystem.

Cons

Amazon Elastic Transcoder

  • Amazon Elastic Transcoder requires a fair amount of setup.
Dan Davidson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Power Systems Virtual Server

  • The critical mass of users for IBM Cloud is lower than that of AWS or Google Cloud, making it more difficult to find qualified personnel for the implementation of IBM Power Systems Virtual Server instances.
  • The learning curve in deploying Power Systems Virtual Servers can be challenging for professionals unfamiliar with IBM and its range of products.

IBM Power Systems Virtual Server

IBM Power Systems Virtual Server was chosen over the competitors mostly due to the flexibility. It allows the virtual server to be created exactly to the business needs. The scalability and dynamic partitioning helps ensure the server is an appropriate size and power for the payload. The other competitors each had their downfalls when it came to flexibility and IBM PowerVM really exceeds there.
