They are well suited for high-performance websites and applications that require more resources than a traditional virtual machine can offer. You have to be aware that since these are real servers their boot times are in the real of five minutes or more because of the tests the machines do during POST.

Enterprise grade organizations with B2B clientele would be served well by using this product. It alleviates the need for an on-premise storage solution by offering a cloud-based alternative. Smaller organizations with less data capacity needs would be better served with an in-house solution, unless they come out with more reasonable pricing down the road.

It has been a fantastic solution, and now it is so highly integrated into our business, it would be difficult to imagine continuing to without it. It is part of our customer contracts as well, and it saves us from having to invest in the on-premise alternative to provide the required storage capacity.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

In general we have found that the provisioning and permissions and switching between instances of bare metal and virtual machines were easier in AWS than in IBM. Also the billing in AWS has much greater transparency. The UI interface is also easier to navigate and understand. we also found that our users liked them better.

What sets Amplidata apart is the cloud-based storage capability. We’ve realized cost savings due to the fact that we are no longer housing the data on premise, and clients rest assured that they have greater visibility into their data.
