Well suited when your product is used by millions of customers and less appropriate where the application is based on performance or execution speed

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

It is ideal when trying to create a hybrid cloud. It works better if you already have I-Series or AIX deployed in your organization. It is complicated if you are using certain services from other vendors Amazon such as Lambda functions or Kinesis. There are some that have the same functionality on IBM, although not an exact replacement.

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • More upfront costs, which do reduce over time so, if the budget is tight, then can be a downside.
  • Responsibility for on-going maintenance tends to be handled for you in the private cloud.
  • We are responsible for the security, implementation, and to keep it up-to date.

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.

Did not have any problems deploying on VPC other than the limited selection of Linux distros. We use CentOS and version 8 is not available at the time of this writing although it has been out for more than a year.

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

It does a subset of what the bigger players such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google already do - it's clearly being actively developed but currently lags some way behind them in terms of offerings and capabilities. I feel it's worth watching as I'm sure in a years time it will be radically bigger and better featured than it is now.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • Customers can count on a reliable alternative to a backup data center.
  • Small customers without DataCenter can count on the necessary services in the cloud and technical service at a reasonable price.
