      I think the best use case for using IBM Cloud Databases is when other products in the IBM Cloud ecosystem are being used. It works very well when computing is being used, or any other IBM cloud products really. I could also see these products being really useful in any scenario where a managed database is wanted with little overhead to set it up and manage it.

      IBM Cloud Databases

      • The ease of setup was effortless. For anyone with development experience, a few simple questions such as name and login data will get you set up.
      • The web application to manage cluster settings, billing settings and even introspect the data was simple and most importantly worked all the time. This can not always be said for web interfaces of other products.

      • Better cost reports, before just increasing to another tier, thus increasing the price. This is critical for early stage startups, where budget is tight.
      • Add more data center options. As a comparison, a similar service, Aiven.io has dozen more options than Compose (basically all big cloud providers). We moved from AWS to Digital Ocean, which made us stop using Compose, since Compose forces us to be either on IBM or AWS.

      It is great the only things I have stumbled upon is the non standard port 80 they use and sometimes expired SSL certificate.

      Support is helpful enough, but we haven't always had questions answered in a satisfactory manner. At one time we realized that Compose had stopped taking database snapshots on its two-per-day schedule, and had in fact not taken one for many days. Support recognized the problem and it was fixed, but the lack of proactive checks and the inability to share exactly what happened has caused us to look elsewhere for production work loads

      The reason why I choose IBM Cloud Databases is that the IBM cloud toolset is already being used in other functions of the company and by using IBM Cloud Databases, the other cloud tools are better embedded and integrated. If the company is set to use amazon tools, I would go for rds.
