IBM Cloud Functions

IBM Cloud Functions [is] not the worse product on the IBM cloud. I decided to write this review as I thought it would be balanced. I would still use functions to set up a serverless architecture where execution time is pretty quick and the code is relatively simple.I wouldn't use IBM Cloud Functions for async calls obviously, as costs could be higher. The functions documentation is lacking in terms of CI/CD, and there are unexplainable errors occurring - like the network connection that I mentioned. So I wouldn't just rely on IBM Cloud Functions too much for the entire system, but make sure it's diversified.

Oracle Big Data Cloud Service

We use it only when we need to and we have found that the software does what it needs to, it's user friendly and us also really helpful in many other ways as well. Like I mentioned before, we love the security and the speed we receive.
