    IBM Cloud Private is an ideal platform for companies to accelerate their business growth. It helps in reducing the cost of IT and operations while delivering a great customer experience. With IBM Cloud Private, you can gain agility and security with a flexible hybrid model that fits your needs. It's highly recommended to my colleagues from me.

    Red Hat

    Best suited for - any organization where you have people who already have expertise on OpenStack, Linux & IP networking. Otherwise, the maintenance & operations will be difficult. When the number of deployed VMs reaches its capacity, it becomes very difficult to manage Red Hat OpenStack because there are no in-built fault management & performance management tools available within Red Hat OpenStack. Not suited for - Organizations where people have a culture of working on automated GUI-based tools. Here VMware wins over Red Hat OpenStack. Also where you have mission-critical applications where downtime cannot be tolerated.

    • SaaS model allows our team to worry less about upgrades, fix packs, environment support etc.

    Cons

    IBM

    • Bluemix/IBM Cloud UI can be better
    • Changing Brand name from Bluemix to IBM Cloud, as we are habituated to Bluemix more

    Red Hat

    • User management really needs improvement - when compared to AWS or GCP.
    • Security of the overall platform needs to be improved.
    • The whole architecture needs to be modular which is not. Ex - Upgrading any particular component (nova, neutron, cinder) should be possible without upgrading the whole Red Hat OpenStack version.
    • The creation of HEAT templates for complex applications is still a challenge & has a dependency on external tools.
    • Stack creation still requires parameters modification at controllers & compute because of the complex nova-scheduler algorithm.

        Alternatives Considered

        IBM

        With VMware cloud, each VMware Cloud customer must have an SDDC account(VMC) as well as a general AWS account. The two accounts must be linked for the service to work which is a tiresome thing to do for some clients but with IBM Cloud Private all these issues are solved.
