ClearDATA recognized their challenges and made efforts to resolve them. However, they learned DR was not their forte. Instead, they turned their focus towards cloud application and data hosting. Considering the relationships built, I would try their services again, especially with some of our applications needing to be moved into a legacy format.

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

I definitely recommend [using] IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) for migration and implementation of applications and databases over cloud environment. It will surely increase the accessibility to the applications at [a] cheaper cost with significant improvement in performance. However, some initial optimization is required for stable performance. The server hardware cost will be completely eliminated. The technical maintenance cost will be almost eliminated.

Pros

ClearDATA

  • Leadership is very attentive, working hard to forge interpersonal relationships

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • The IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) architecture allows scripted preparation and management of the virtual environment, which we use to link the IBM VPC API with an Ultimus CPS solution, allowing our colleagues to manage the IBM environment directly from our own management solution.
  • IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) uses a "pay what you use" pricing model. By integrating the IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) API into Ultimus management processes, the machines can be started and stopped automatically specifically for the needed times. This saves us a lot of money.
  • The performance of the IBM VPM machines is excellent and gives us great performance for developing and presenting our Ultimus products and solutions.

Cons

ClearDATA

  • Support was a challenge. Often tickets would sit until escalated.
  • Clear expectations on both sides caused communication challenges.
  • Data stored in the cloud was over 7 days old, and if there was a need to restore the data, business continuity would be greatly affected.

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • The documentation and integration between OpenShift and IBMCloud was not clear. It took some time to figure out which interface to use to setup certain items.
  • Better communication between departments could be improved. Had a billing question and had two departments saying it was the other team's issue. Took three days of back and forth to resolve.
  • The documentation for loading containers into IBM Cloud OpenShift container registry was not clear. The correct commands were not documented.

Great responsiveness and detailed know-how from the team. Self Explanatory and good resources on the Web to resolve issues. Good communication on issues via email. Good response times on issues which arise and where we have received support from the IBM support team. We believe that IBM is a great Partner to base our IT applications and we believe that a critical infrastructure like a cloud backend will be well served if we continue to base it on IBM.

This helps us a lot while we are testing some of our core products that need high computational speed. We could quickly configure a server of our choice and run testing, and we can switch off. This helps us to save money on using a high-performance server with parallel computing.

Alternatives Considered

ClearDATA

Zadara:This is our current provider. We have a SaaS (Storage as a Service) solution coupled with cloud disaster recovery. So far, this service has been exemplary.

We vetted various competitors of IBM to gain better insight into our purchases. Again, this for most part depends on your organization, but IBM's advanced analytics platform is on par with most of the bigger platforms. They have developments that ease the speed of development and helped us gain ROI sooner than expected.

Return on Investment

ClearDATA

  • Hard to say as we never really tested the data recovery, even though it was part of the scope of the project.
  • Considering the challenges, I would say we paid for something we didn't receive. However, when escalated we got somewhere.
  • From a customer service standpoint, it was 50/50.

  • Future readiness--we have the ability to quickly respond and build custom demos for customers in a short timeframe.
  • Savings on hardware--we have the ability to spin up large workloads to demonstrate to customers the performance of our tools and IBM Cloud.
