These services connect very well together inside the IBM platform. This ease of integration saves time and helps optimize movement of data across these components. For the most part, it's all open source anyway, and so the "flavor" of the infrastructure is agnostic to me. However, I believe I gain data speed and availability by building components together inside a single entity. Depending on your data usage, this might be a critical need.

Connecting a VPC, Classic Inf and a Power Series Network is not the simplest of operations, but is well supported.
Direct Links and Transit Gateways are required in this scenario.

  • IBM API Connect
At the moment we are mainly using virtual machines, virtual storage, and the IBM API to operate the environment. Concerning products, we are using our own products and services from the Ultimus Digital Process Automation Suite, with Ultimus BPM, Composed Process Solutions, and, of course, the Ultimus DPA Portal as end-user interface. This is a perfect combination for our development, professional services, and sales departments.

  • IBM Cloud Functions
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage
Cloud Functions in conjunction with Cloud Object Storage allows massive scalability in IO and CPU speed. Being able to read, processing and write 10s of GBs per second is pretty amazing, considering that you can scale up to 1000x4GB cloud functions in under 10s. There are several "embarrassingly parallelizable" parts of our data processing pipeline that have gone from 10s of minutes to 10s of seconds by rewriting them to use Cloud Functions.

Having several services working together helped to simplify our lives. The offer that IBM cloud has keeps growing and it is catching up with competitors. Related to Kubernetes, at the time of our implementation we had problems with load balancers but now the experience is better. Also the same happened to us in relation to Visual Recognition.

  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
This was really an evaluation to see how IBM Cloud works so we can better support our clients - to their credit, the offering works exactly as you would expect it, with the exception that you can't perform custom routing between subnets. If this is an absolute requirement then (at the time of writing) you'll need to go to another cloud provider.
