IBM Cloud Internet Services are being used for the storage of documents on the cloud repository. It is also used as a solution that has the ability to provide security for web properties. It is being used by multiple departments in the organization. It solves the problem of having a secure and globally accessible storage repository. Different options and plans offered help the IT department to best manage these services for the organization.
  • Ease of accessibility.
  • High performance experience for end-users.
  • Dependent on a Chrome browser for good performance.
  • Page rule setting difficulties.
IBM Cloud Internet Services is well suited for the global organization looking for a secure yet flexible cloud solution. In my experience, it could be difficult for mid-sized organizations due to pricing constraints.

IBM Cloud Internet Services is currently used as an inbound reverse proxy for DNS name resolution, TLS endpoint, traffic metrics, intrusion detection, source IP address limiting, and other firewall features.

In both single- and multi-tenant scenarios, IBM Cloud Internet Services is provisioned once per IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service cluster (one cluster per single- or multi-tenant solution).
  • Supports source IP address limiting.
  • Supports intrusion detection.
  • Request proxying is done by way of DNS name resolution, which is inflexible.
  • Proxy services do not work on wildcard DNS entries.
The UI is a bit clunky and requiring DNS name resolution as a method for intercepting and proxying requests is not always appropriate.

For example, if we wanted to have regional application instances with domains/hostnames that include the region details (e.g., tor01.example.com, wdc01.example.com), but wanted to hide the region-specific implementations from end-users, typically one would use CNAME DNS records (e.g., myapp.example.com) to hide the underlying A DNS records. However, IBM Cloud Internet Services does not support the use of CNAME records unless the destination is not proxied.

IBM Cloud Internet Services is being used for hosting DNS and to secure internet-facing applications from data theft.
  • Improving performance with a few changes is easy.
  • Didn't fail protection.
IBM Cloud Internet is good for providing fast and secure internet services and has an additional capability that searches through web instances to identify suspicious activity. One of the drawbacks of most cloud services is reliability and security, but I don't think this is an issue with IBM.

[Note: reviewer is using a trial version] In the company where I work, we have applications in several public and private clouds from different providers, for purposes of centralizing the administration of the same applications. We are evaluating IBM Cloud Services, so that this is not a headache and there is a single manager for all these clouds solutions. At the moment we are conducting a proof of concept with the services provided by IBM and we hope it will help us quickly in the management of them, so far the management is simple.
  • Protection against online threats.
  • Domain management through IBM's intuitive interface.
  • Prevents interruptions caused by harmful traffic, while allowing good traffic, keeping websites, applications and APIs highly available and high performance.
  • Installation guides that are more friendly and simple
  • Clearer messages for the installation processes
One of the services for which we use and recommend cloud [solutions] in my company is in e-commerce applications since it helps us to upload information, share and scale resources easily and internally it helps us to incur economic savings.

We use IBM Cloud on a production basis, addressing data collected from IOT devices/smartphones and algorithm computing to deliver car driving quality scoring for any motorist. It is used by our back end development team. We deliver real time data analytics to make the roads cleaner and safer.
  • Scalability
  • High availability
  • Local data centers allowing to fulfill customer’s data privacy policies
  • Pricing model
  • Ability to purchase online directly from IBM (vs corporate wholesaler)
Suits the needs of large account businesses. Not appropriate for small companies or startups as final customers (complexity)
