IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

Heavier usage of processor and/or memory with higher network requirements. Such as a robust, vertical database cluster or a robust Redis cluster. Their bare metal offerings are very suited for these use-cases as well as data-science requirements for modeling servers. Basically, anything that requires a large hardware requirement, these servers can deliver.

In case you want a cheaper PaaS that may be available in your country (Brazil, in my case), you may give Jelastic a try. There are some other strong competitors for the PaaS scenario with free versions, but the paid versions are far more expensive.

Pros

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

  • Multiple locations for distributed computing allowing faster download speeds for our customers and staff alike
  • Full service of domain registrations, SSL purchases, server rental, DNS servers, etc. This allows us to keep all of our necessary related services within a single console and single billing system.
  • Good backup system with off-site backup servers and easy disaster recovery

  • Easy to use, the interface guides you to create your application.
  • Custom SSL certificate. You can upload your own certificates and it will configure them for you.

Cons

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

  • Ability to switch OS/platform license to customer's own license without being re-deploy.
  • Procedure for easy hardware refresh (especially hard drive) to ease cloning content to new hard drive. We have a 6 years disk and we very concern about it.
  • Other than that, everything is OK.

  • SSH is still tricky to use. You have to log in to a gateway and go to an option menu to get logged in. Sometimes it was not available or too slow.
  • Some errors are not clear enough. It took some time to understand which files I had to upload to get my custom SSL certificates working.

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.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

We've also had good success with Mac colocation services like MacStadium, being cheaper with unlimited networking, quite dependable and also very flexible when used with VMware, but with IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers we have a lot more options on data center locations, fantastic network routing between data centers and any server capacity I would need. With regards to Azure, AWS, etc., those models just don't work for our projects, too many restrictions on networking and other details. IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers are just easier.

The price of Jelastic for the paid version (considering SSL) is better.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers

  • This service helps us to have a professional hosting service in less than a week.
  • We had to get quality hardware in a professional managed data center. The cost was higher than if we had had an in-house solution, but totally worth it.
  • The higher cost vs cloud was a factor to switch to another cloud provider.

  • It has powered my project since its creation. It's a small project but I did not have any problems until now.
