I have recommended it to our other US office locations. My recommendation is based on the benefit of managed enrollment, the ability to have multiple enrollment pathways and the added bonus of having a common platform across all of our corporate sites improving IT support, management and user familiarity with wireless device enrollment while at work.

IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

I think IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions would be a good fit for a medium to large company looking to outsource their current in-house VMware products. The IBM solution would allow them to outsource their current infrastructure so that the company could then concentrate on their core business, whatever that may be.A smaller company with a smaller VMware footprint would probably not be a good fit here. It's a pretty complex process to get things started, so it might not be worth it for a smaller company.

We like when a product works and we don't have to look for alternate solutions, add network project change over downtime and retrain staff. Even the limitations (some devices don't enroll well) and recent licensing changes do not precipitate a change in our desire to continue with the product. The cloudpath support has provided clear alternatives for our issues and we are able to keep business going with minimal impact on staff and support

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 view IBM as one of the most reliable vendors we have dealt with from an availability perspective. No issue whatsoever in terms of getting answers and solutions in a timely manner when we need them.

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

We have had to raise a lot of support tickets during our three years of service. We do get timely support on those tickets and there have only been a few issues which have had an extended troubleshooting time that might have exceeded our expected resolution timeframe.

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!

The pricing was better for us and that was our deciding factor in making the decision to go with CloudPATH. We did test both solutions in our pilot environment and while we liked the features of the Cisco solution and deploy other Cisco solutions and products the pricing was a significant factor in our decision process.

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

CloudPATH

  • We have improved auditing of users accessing the network and on what devices.
  • We have greater control over access to our network, including the ability to restrict access during non-business hours.

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.
