    I believe for small to mid business application hosting Centurylink provides an adequate service. When moving to larger scale business enviornments I believe the limitations, slowness is going to become a problem

    IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions provides a simple interface that is easy to use and fast to implement and get started without any hassle. A secure way to migrate multiple data across Cloud platforms and it will allow you to move the workload to and from Cloud at no cost and no need to invest in new resources and skills.

    Pros

    CenturyLink Public Cloud

    • Offloading the requirements for hosting apps in house - cost savings
    • Access ability - users could access documents and programs from anywhere
    • Collaborative work ability - multiple users could work within the same enviornment

    IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

    • Adaptable valuing relying upon size and scale.
    • The presentation is first rate. Our on-prem climate was continually experiencing slack and general languor. With IBM running everything, it's much smoother.
    • Start another group as little as one ESXi worker or scale a current bunch.
    Rajesh Singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    CenturyLink Public Cloud

    • Perhaps ease of use - it's not convoluted but a little more streamlined of an interface would be great
    • Make your presence more known - in a world of heavily advertised cloud options CenturyLink is not at the top of the pile and I think it may be due to a lack of awareness in the business community. Advertise!
    • Streamline functionality - interface can be a little slow at times.

    IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

    • Support is horrible and or non-existent
    • Documentation is out of date and incorrect for the most part
    • IBM employees and salespeople are not aware of features or offerings
    • Does not integrate the Zerto, only Veeam and has limited options for data migration

    We are highly likely to renew this product as it has quickly very integral across our organization and is useful in almost all of our core data analytics and business processes. We have to ensure the cost side is manageable and still worth it upon renewal - but don't see this as a major hurdle

    It is easy to use and setting it up is simple. The only con is that the pricing is a little bit high as well as documentation is a little low; so we had to do some personal learning to be able to fully utilize the product, or hop on the phone with someone.

    We use this product both on a stand alone basis and have also integrated it with various internal systems. We have not experienced any delay / issues when using the product in either instance - excellent and consistent performer across the board

    Overall, just a great experience here. No one in my opinion gets a perfect 10/10 rating (no one is ever perfect), so 9/10 is probably as good as it gets! From initial planning to post implementation support, the IBM Cloud and professional services has been there for my group as much as we have needed them. Great job!

    IBM professional services helped us plan and implement the project with great success. They guided the project from planning, scoping, pre-implementation, testing, roll-out, then production and post-production support. We were very impressed with their knowledge of VMware and really appreciated their desire to make our project a success. I would highly recommend them!

    I did not select the application hosting environment - I was a user. That being said I do not have much of a voice in the difference between hosted services that I have experienced.

    IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions stacks up against them, we fully agree there are so many features in IBM cloud for VMware Solutions that make it unique and different. The system provides us hypervisor security level and the system even has live backup and storage capacity of data. This system provides us with accuracy that helps us to reduce errors and vulnerability.

    The product is highly scalable - our primary concern upon implementation was this very issue. We found it integrates with our own internal systems in a very seamless manner - have had absolutely no issues on this front

    IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

    • It has a positive impact on the cost required to maintain our vSphere environment by allowing us to get rid of our vsphere hardware and not worry about maintenance either.
    • There have been very few negatives, but one would definitely be the open-ended cost associated with cloud products in general.
