Infrastructure for our award winning Cloud Software, The Internet of Cargo. It is used to support the digital service and data lake as basis for Machine Learning, API, Mobile and Big Data. Users. We orchestrate several instances and applications that the service uses to provide real time availability, scalability and fail-safety to assure a global, always on service which can scale to process 100,000,000 million cargo assets in real time and forward alerts while providing dependable storage for reporting applications.

Event Streams is a great service and probably the best offering in our current deployment. Redis availability is also key for our architecture as well as PostgreSQL. Since we use Kubernetes, this is also a service that we value, but where AWS is superior in their offering. Instances as a whole are on the same price-level as AWS so its a good thing to see if the available geographical regions are suitable for the respective projects.

A great start by IBM as they dip their toe into the Cloud marketplace - keep an eye on this one as it develops.

IBM VPC is being used currently as a proof of concept and a training platform - our business relies on enabling other companies to achieve their own technology goals, and with cloud migrations currently big business, we make it ours to be aware of the current state of cloud provider offerings. IBM is a vital part of this. Thus through prototyping potential solutions and building on our own cloud platform knowledge, we are in a better position to help clients to make the right purchasing decisions for their business, and to help them to implement it.
  • Powerful
  • Easy to get started
  • Multiple regions
  • Clearly a "me too" offering
  • Small range of offerings compared to other providers
  • Limited range of regions
I don't, at this stage, really see the compelling reason to select IBM VPC - it's clearly a "me too" offering that is still being actively developed and can't yet offer what its competitors offer. It's a great start by a well known and trustworthy brand so I would love to see it develop into a competitive offering. But, at this stage, I would only recommend it if someone already has a relationship with or a preference for IBM services.

We currently use the IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud for hosting our company's and clients' mission-critical hosted services, business applications, and data warehousing requirements. For some of our customers, we use the VPC to host their customer-facing applications, while for others, we deploy it in building hybrid clouds for maintaining business continuity.
  • Hosting customer-facing applications.
  • Maintain business continuity.
  • Improvements in how the client can define and control their virtual networks.
  • Improvements to the efficiency of deploying and managing computing, storage, and networking cloud resources.
IBM VPC offers agile scalability, managing computing and networking resources, and quick speed of deployment of applications to the cloud environment.

Cost effective with a good user-experience

We use IBM Cloud VPC to host our SP application for data collection, and to be the backend for a couple of web apps. It is being used across the whole organization. We are resolving the document collaboration and management system issues that we had, and this helps our company because it provides an efficient and cost-effective solution for meeting our company's needs for speed, cost, and reliability. IBM Cloud VPC is versatile enough that it meets needs across several different use cases.
  • Agile to scale.
  • Secure and protected.
  • Set-up of specific user rights.
  • VPC server instance change.
IBM VPC is well suited to secure and scale our environment for hosting an application on cloud-based VPC and its very cost-efficient for our uses. It may be less appropriate for sharing environments and power-based instances.

We are using it to develop products in our R&D department.
  • Easy to build
  • Reliable
  • Price
  • Deleting and updating
I think it is suitable when we need to have some private servers that need to integrate with each other without the need to be exposed to the external world; servers that need to access data residing in databases that need to be secured; application servers where web servers are required to process some logic.

VPC is cost effective and versatile, just be prepared to brush up on IBM IAM assignments.

This helps our company because it provides an efficient and cost effective solution to meeting our company needs for speed, cost, and reliability. IBM Cloud VPC is versatile enough that it meets needs across several different use cases.
  • Reliable
  • Cost effective
  • Setup of specific user rights and roles could have been bucketed better instead of having to assign rights in multiple areas.
  • More straightforward access to assigning static IP and SSL to specific VPC.
It has met all the needs I have wanted from it so far outside of the fumbling through initial rights and user role setup so I could complete initial setup.
