There are clear advantages and risks when using multiple products with a single vendor. Some advantages are:
  • Speed and cost of data object storage between Bare Metal vs external suck as S3
  • Single management portal
  • Single key/token via SDK for API or management
  • Familiar experience

We are using primarily these two products namely IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service and Veeam on IBM Cloud. Both of these products of IBM are extremely valuable when it comes to using in conjunction with IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers. Veeam on IBM Cloud gives an amazing backup and recovery system for our data in case any server failure occurs. Also, IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service correlates amazingly with the Bare Metal Servers as the data in the form of Kubernetes clusters are handled in a very efficient way in the servers considering the load associated with it.

  • IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions
We are using IBM Cloud for VMWARE Solutions for managing our VDI Environment. We have configured & deployed windows workloads on VMWARE so that our work from Home users can easily access it & work on it. It is easy for us to manage the single sign-on application with the IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers.

  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
We are using IBM cloud virtual servers for our in-house applications deployment. It becomes easy to integrate with the same vendor applications & also provides a secure environment. We also get support from IBM Support Team during the integration & deployment phase.

  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
  • IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers
  • IBM Cloud Databases
It is easy for us to manage all our data and workloads to manage at one location (at least for our department). The way the connection works or the VPC peering works is super simple and support teams are always there to help.

  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
It allow us additional flexibility and scalability. We use the virtual servers along side of IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers for processes that don't need the IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers speed or architecture. We love keeping things low latency which this allows us to do since they are in the same data center. They also provide us with faster deploy time.

I would like to use more services but the problem is the lack of knowledge of the services. I think IBM should be more informative on their Youtube channel IBM Cloud so I can be educated more. Providing examples would be very fun to watch because there is so much to learn with all the services you offer but it's almost like you position everyone to just know about them. I need a spot to learn more about them and I personally use YouTube a lot for learning. But I do not think IBM is using it very well for me and other users to learn more.

This is usually a good thing, but I have had a mixed bag. The public cloud does not always mesh well with the private cloud and there is a decent amount of configuration required before both can interconnect. As it usually follows, added complexity has caused us issues with traceability and outages.

Having the possibility to use multiple products offered by the same provider is very important. You reduce the cost of your infrastructure. Using Bare Metal Servers with Cloud Instances and other services at the same place is good for saving time, saving money and constantly know what is deployed for your organization.

We haven't really used much of the other IBM Cloud products yet, we like to manage all we can ourselves. But it's good to know we can have all that portfolio any time we need. Coming from the Softlayer days, this has given me the confidence that we are hosting our services with a strong provider.
