IBM Cloud File Storage

It is well suited if you are already aware of how to use cloud file storage systems, but if you are new to it, IBM is not a very beginner-friendly platform to get started. I had many troubles getting started. I felt other cloud providers had better documentation and tutorials to get started.

OVHcloud Public Cloud

The VPS/Cloud/Dedicated server offerings are performant and cost effective for any application - you can really host and build anything on their network and server solutions. It is highly recommended that any user of OVHcloud [Public Cloud] be well-experienced in technical/server-admin, as the support from OVH is limited. Companies that don't have very experienced systems administrators or hobbyists or individual hosting clients that aren't familiar with linux/command line/sysadmin, should be wary of using OVH products as there is very limited support from OVH available.

I just had one issue requiring contacting the support. People were very friendly and helpful. I cannot rate better because I have not been exposed to other similar situations (just had one single issue in 6 months), and cannot rate lower because this proves that IBM is trustworthy. I think it is fair.

OVHcloud Public Cloud

Most notably OVHcloud [Public Cloud] has dedicated servers which are a different breed of product than Linode's flagship VPS servers, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that OVHcloud [Public Cloud] can provide a fully-dedicated server at a lower price point than Linode's virtual server. Even worse than that is that with a dedicated server from [OVHcloud Public Cloud] there is zero chance of "cpu theft" (aka, noisy neighbor) which is a very real problem at Linode (we would require multiple migrations every year for servers hosted at Linode that were experiencing cpu theft). In addition to the improvement in quality for network/hardware at OVHcloud [Public Cloud] with their dedicated server offering, their VPS servers are also highly competitive against Linode's VPS servers - in the 2 years we've used OVHcloud [Public Cloud] VPS's we've had zero downtime associated with OVH actions such as host-node reboots or cpu theft or host node upgrades, a stark difference compared to Linode which regularly experiences those types of downtimes and many more on a very regular basis.
