IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

We used it to deploy a version of our data science environment, particularly in tight integrations. Some software needs both administrative and technical support to handle it, and with the VPC sitting outside our company's infrastructure, we could readily build without burden. This allowed us to grab ROI faster and within the deadlines required by the business areas.

Clarify before hand any additional charges for remote hand and arrangement/SLA for remote hand. Negotiate well on these terms as they tend to be more flexible around this. Clarify shipping and handling charges if any.

Pros

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • The IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) architecture allows scripted preparation and management of the virtual environment, which we use to link the IBM VPC API with an Ultimus CPS solution, allowing our colleagues to manage the IBM environment directly from our own management solution.
  • IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) uses a "pay what you use" pricing model. By integrating the IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) API into Ultimus management processes, the machines can be started and stopped automatically specifically for the needed times. This saves us a lot of money.
  • The performance of the IBM VPM machines is excellent and gives us great performance for developing and presenting our Ultimus products and solutions.

Cons

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • The documentation and integration between OpenShift and IBMCloud was not clear. It took some time to figure out which interface to use to setup certain items.
  • Better communication between departments could be improved. Had a billing question and had two departments saying it was the other team's issue. Took three days of back and forth to resolve.
  • The documentation for loading containers into IBM Cloud OpenShift container registry was not clear. The correct commands were not documented.

  • San Jose facility power outage caused damage to company's credibility, this should not occur again being 7x24 facility and backup generator
  • Avoiding too many management changes will help create good connection with individuals for sustained harmony

Great responsiveness and detailed know-how from the team. Self Explanatory and good resources on the Web to resolve issues. Good communication on issues via email. Good response times on issues which arise and where we have received support from the IBM support team. We believe that IBM is a great Partner to base our IT applications and we believe that a critical infrastructure like a cloud backend will be well served if we continue to base it on IBM.

It's fairly easy to use once you use it a couple of times, but I wouldn't like to rely on IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) completely because I don't want to be locked into a particular cloud provider. In terms of support, the docs are pretty good, but sometimes you wish that information was easier to access like with other providers.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

We chose IBM Cloud [Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)] because of its tight integration with the Lithops library, which allows us to quickly scale our compute resources by provisioning VPC instances or calling Cloud Functions, handling all the deployment, data moving, etc. without us needing to know the details or learn another language, all from Python code.
