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

It's a test to have another site as DR and keeping it up to the level of our item site. IBM Cloud permits us not to stress over keeping up another site. It's not difficult to begin with IBM Cloud, moving beginning seeds, and keeping up reproducing information.

IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

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  • Documentation is out of date and incorrect for the most part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

Everything is very clearly laid out. Being familiar with vSphere already, it was a quick transition over to the IBM environment. This allowed us to spend less time on the implementation phase and move quickly to actually utilizing the system on a day to day basis. Also, the performance is very good. No lagginess to the website like our previous on-prem environment.

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 is better for clients on a dollar to dollar basis compared to AWS Backup. It allows customers to easily see how much resources they are using in the cloud (a feature not fully available with AWS). This helps save them money and be smarter with their backup storage.

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

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

  • It emphatically affects the expense needed to keep up our vSphere climate by permitting us to dispose of our vSphere equipment and not stress over upkeep by the same token.
  • There have been not very many negatives, however one would be the open-finished expense related with cloud items when all is said in done.
