Effective Cloud product that has the highest data protection capabilities and to migrate multiple project data and files across many other different platforms is quick and cost effective. IBM Cloud File Storage offers enough storage capacity that can accommodate multiple files for the different projects and easy uploading of all my project information on Cloud.

OVH

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.

Cons

IBM

  • We have sometimes experienced some outages and hope IBM will fix this soon.
  • Initial trainings are required for the teams to work and do the setup.
  • Support documentation from IBM needs improvement with [the] inclusion of more detailed steps and video tutorials for [a] better understanding of the engineers.
  • The billing process is very complex and you may have to incur additional overhead. Need a simpler approach and clarity on this aspect.
  • Support response from the IBM team is very slow and lacks information.

      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.

      In my opinion, IBM has produced excellent products that have been instrumental in the development of our business. We rely heavily on data to power the programs in our organization. Because our systems can be accessed from various apps without experiencing any downtime, integrating them with this platform is simple. The ability to tailor this platform to accommodate varying data quantities was a big plus for me.

      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.
