  • The reliability is the keyword. Never has any issue during 6 years in service.
  • Service pricing is quite higher then the average market price, there was a moment that we were in difficult financial situation and almost couldn't pay the service.
  • After all, the IBM reliability is the main factor that we're still in the business until today.

  • [I feel] IBM caused significant damages to their acknowledged "gross negligence." [...] [In my opinion,] holding customers/data hostage to limit gross negligence is an extremely poor practice.
  • [With my experiences,] our investment was a tremendous loss in time & resources. Their lack of support, [in my opinion,] has caused us to pivot our entire business model and revenue stream. Our product re-launch has been setback by ~18 months due to damages caused by [in my experience, to be] IBM's gross negligence.

  • At the beginning bare metal servers were very expensive cost
  • Not enough support to handle questions like load balancing to figure out alone so this prevented me from making more profit because servers would be down

  • This service helps us to have a professional hosting service in less than a week.
  • We had to get quality hardware in a professional managed data center. The cost was higher than if we had had an in-house solution, but totally worth it.
  • The higher cost vs cloud was a factor to switch to another cloud provider.
