Enterprise grade organizations with B2B clientele would be served well by using this product. It alleviates the need for an on-premise storage solution by offering a cloud-based alternative. Smaller organizations with less data capacity needs would be better served with an in-house solution, unless they come out with more reasonable pricing down the road.

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

Appropriate for organizations seeking IaaS to consolidate and have high performance/ compute requirements, database hosting etc.Less appropriate for clients who have small workloads with few transactional requirements or IOPS.

It has been a fantastic solution, and now it is so highly integrated into our business, it would be difficult to imagine continuing to without it. It is part of our customer contracts as well, and it saves us from having to invest in the on-premise alternative to provide the required storage capacity.

Alternatives Considered

What sets Amplidata apart is the cloud-based storage capability. We’ve realized cost savings due to the fact that we are no longer housing the data on premise, and clients rest assured that they have greater visibility into their data.

We also use Azure. It is more cost effective, and provides a wide selection of PaaS. It lacks POWER systems infrastructure.
