    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 Bare Metal Servers

    IBM Cloud Bare Metal servers are best suited if you are looking for an alternative for adding computing resources to your organization's IT domain. The costs of owning and maintaining a physical resource in the organization are far more than renting computing resources on the cloud. The bare-metal servers allow you to utilize the entire server for your organization's requirements.

    Pros

    Hostway (Ntirety)

    • Easy Maintenance
    • Highly Scalable
    • High Availability

    IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

    • Performance - the servers perform really well, even under stress. We have some long build processes running concurrently, and the server [can] serve other applications without any problems.
    • Secure - for the most part, the servers are very secure and IBM provides many tools to help [make] sure the servers stay that way.
    • Highly Available - while we have experienced various downtimes and outages with other IBM Cloud offerings, so far, we have not experienced any with [IBM Cloud] Bare Metal Servers.

    Cons

    • Load Balancing across nodes
    • Single point Failure
    • Performance issues

    IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

    • [In my experience, the] Customer Service Agreement (CSA) has many gaps in terms of responsibility with Bare Metal Servers.
    • [I believe] IBM should be deploying servers and firmware updating all components before providing them to customers to prevent component failure.
    • [I feel] IBM needs lots of improvement with their legacy VPN to access IMPI management tools. The level of security of it is unparalleled when it works. Having access to KVM / IPMI is critical for any business, and when their VPN service is not working.
    • [From my experiences,] IBM deployed faulty hardware, or failed to update firmware per Lenovo notices, only to pass off blame.
    • [In my opinion,] IBM's General Counsel and Paralegal held our data/company hostage when components failed, [in my experience] to IBM "gross negligence" (in their words), only to release it if we were to limit damages to $1,000.

    The support is decent and in an emergency they will help you if you make enough noise. However the creation of "class of customers" within the IBM ecosystem I think is a step backwards as it can put emergencies on the back burner simply because we didn't pay enough in monthly fees.

    I've used IBM professional services in a few cases (not for my company but for some of my clients), and the people in professional services are really helpful. You call them and set a meeting for the initial planning session, but they usually most of the work already done, they just ask some questions and they fill in the blanks. However, in some cases implementation can take longer than planned.

    The Best part of this IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers is performance and a very highly usable part is Security stuff. everyone needs to secure their data and work with a smoothly running app. for this reason I select this server rather than another one. I will use it in feature [definitely].

    Return on Investment

    Hostway (Ntirety)

    • provided quick and easy solutions
    • Quick maintenance of our application
    • Negative impact is about performance handling issues and slowness of OS

    IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

    • The reliability is the keyword. Never has any issue during 6 years in service.
    • Service pricing is quite higher then the average market price, there was a moment that we were in difficult financial situation and almost couldn't pay the service.
    • After all, the IBM reliability is the main factor that we're still in the business until today.
