IBM Cloud VPC review

In fact, we have the same functionality on both. Brazil Azure and AWS had started offering those options before IBM, so IBM was [at a] disadvantage, now both are tied.

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
Currently, 2 projects running on AWS, I have been using a cloud environment for [a] couple of years, [and] my opinion on IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) stacks up against them in one thing for a beginner IBM is good to experiment and it [has] good documentation and [a] good interface.

We vetted various competitors of IBM to gain better insight into our purchases. Again, this for most part depends on your organization, but IBM's advanced analytics platform is on par with most of the bigger platforms. They have developments that ease the speed of development and helped us gain ROI sooner than expected.

I selected IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) because of 5 points that I thought and was proven correct based on my experience using the service. First is security which I strongly talked about all throughout my review. Secondly is agility. The third is Isolation. Fourth is the high performance. Fifth, and last, is the scalability

I would take Schematics over CFTs!

We are deploying AWAF (F5 ASM) in VPC instances which are superior to AWS WAF in policy features.

Our joint customer has been pleased with Direct Link... We just got VPC custom routes late Fall. Lots of catchup to do.

We always have an open eye on IBM Cloud, and on AWS and Microsoft Azure. But the offering of IBM is much cleaner and better organized, especially compared to the very overloaded offering of AWS. The management console from IBM is good to use and the IBM support is always available to help in case there are any questions.

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
We chose IBM Cloud [Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)] because of its tight integration with the Lithops library, which allows us to quickly scale our compute resources by provisioning VPC instances or calling Cloud Functions, handling all the deployment, data moving, etc. without us needing to know the details or learn another language, all from Python code.

The certificate manager works just as in the other clouds and simplifies the tasks related to this security component of any solution. In the case of DB2, we are considering this service for a particular customer, and the use case has a great Return on Investment due to its elasticity and licensing terms.

It does a subset of what the bigger players such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google already do - it's clearly being actively developed but currently lags some way behind them in terms of offerings and capabilities. I feel it's worth watching as I'm sure in a years time it will be radically bigger and better featured than it is now.

IBM Cloud VPC is easier to use and a more integrated solution when compared to the other products. I could not complete the test on the other platforms due to the complexity and a lack of proper help in configuring the solution. For me, IBM was the best solution to proceed with, and also was cheaper.
