IBM

I have liked the performance of this platform since we deployed it. It provides us with an additional network layer that eliminates any bottlenecks of our virtual servers. It has high functionality speed in data processing contributing to faster workflows. Security of our private cloud is guaranteed at an affordable and reliable cost.

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

  • 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.

      IBM

      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.

      IBM

      The implementation of the VPCs was seemless. All the components worked according to their function. This was also done quickly, and without needing a lot of administrative support. By gaining support from IBM as well, this gave us the expert administrative support we needed and did not have to burden our own departments

      Alternatives Considered

      IBM

      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.

      Navisite's rates were better and they seemed to have more SQL Server expertise. This was about 5 years ago and it may not be the case anymore

      Return on Investment

      IBM

      • Future readiness--we have the ability to quickly respond and build custom demos for customers in a short timeframe.
      • Savings on hardware--we have the ability to spin up large workloads to demonstrate to customers the performance of our tools and IBM Cloud.

      • Cost savings by not having a full-time DBA on staff - saving of at least 50K a year
      • Data team not on call 24/7
      • Navisite team will try to fix issue if possible - e.g. shrink log files that have grown
