      Cons

      IBM

      • The software appears to be geared for a no-programming approach, which implies that making changes is more difficult.
      • The user base is small making it monotonous and difficult to come up with new methods.
      • The number of rankings is not as large as competitors.
      • The admin end is poorly designed, as they are unable to receive and respond to client feedback.

          At the moment we are 100% satisfied with the performance and our support team is well used to the process involved. So unless we have some major issues in adopting, we are sure to be with IBM itself.

          Support Rating

          IBM

          As with most IBM products the ongoing support for IBM Power Virtual Server is solid and consistent. IBM provides a clear roadmap for receiving support of their products. Both voice and online response is offered. It is obvious that IBM has the internal systems and culture to maintain support functions. This starts from the initial support call to the problem analysis and continues through the problem resolution. Documentation and communication are consistent within this process.

          Alternatives Considered

          IBM

          The success of IBM's power system is largely dependent on security. Its reliability is a crucial component in its widespread use, as it enables complex businesses such as banking and insurance to operate with greater security and less downtime. This system has a low power complexity and utilization, and failures are easier to track thanks to continuous logs.

          IBM
