    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 Power System Virtual Server

    IBM Power System Virtual Server is well-suited to mid-range systems that execute a lot of batch processing and have physical limits such as memory, hard drive capacity, and networking performance. In comparison to a physical server environment, these issues can be rectified considerably more readily in the IBM Power System Virtual Server environment.

    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 Power System Virtual Server

    • It is good in managing our documents in a precise manner.
    • It is a comprehensive tool and supports other languages like JAVA and Python and it is useful for us.
    • It is quite a valuable tool available at a reasonable price in the market and it is a scalable tool.

    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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Power System Virtual Server

    • The software appears to be geared for a no-programming approach, which implies that making changes is more difficult.
    • The user base is small making it monotonous and difficult to come up with new methods.
    • The number of rankings is not as large as competitors.
    • The admin end is poorly designed, as they are unable to receive and respond to client feedback.

    At the moment we are 100% satisfied with the performance and our support team is well used to the process involved. So unless we have some major issues in adopting, we are sure to be with IBM itself.

    Power Systems Virtual Server on IBM Cloud for IBMi's overall usability is good, but it can be difficult for new users, some learning is needed, but there are tonns of online documentation.

    As with most IBM products the ongoing support for IBM Power Virtual Server is solid and consistent. IBM provides a clear roadmap for receiving support of their products. Both voice and online response is offered. It is obvious that IBM has the internal systems and culture to maintain support functions. This starts from the initial support call to the problem analysis and continues through the problem resolution. Documentation and communication are consistent within this process.

    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 Power System Virtual Server

    The success of IBM's power system is largely dependent on security. Its reliability is a crucial component in its widespread use, as it enables complex businesses such as banking and insurance to operate with greater security and less downtime. This system has a low power complexity and utilization, and failures are easier to track thanks to continuous logs.

    • Services and performance is super good.
    • Less effect towards finance matters.
    • Yes, more effective and efficient towards the tasks and it can be up by itself. Manual interaction is required for it is very feasible. It is taking very little time to come up and to start again. Usually, a user needs it more than anything because of its speed. It is very helpful for a clear view of data.
