  • IBM Cloud Internet Services
Being able to have the same services on the same vendor allows for a smoother integration and some cost efficiencies. However this adds some risk with DR and emergency planning.

We do not see any significant impact of using multiple portfolio products together. However, it is preferred to use products from the same vendor as it reduces administrative overhead.

We utilize virtual servers for our web hosting and development environments but we use Bare Metal Servers for our production database server. It is great for a start-up looking to lease equipment that can scale as they grow. Well suited for training models for data science with a dedicated server. We don't have to worry about racking up hourly costs, which would be costlier than Bare Metal. We utilize IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers to run custom Ubuntu servers. It has a very high reliability

  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage
The Bare Metal servers provide just one layer of our stack. On our private subnet, we have a complement of virtual servers, file storage, block storage, object storage, load balancers, and so on. IBM Cloud provides us with all of the pieces we need to deploy a full software stack.

Since most of the software and hardware used by us is provided by IBM, we are highly reliant on IBM. IBM products integrate with other IBM products very well as they belong to the same ecosystem.

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

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
