This product is used by our department in collaboration with the IBM Cloud Virtual Server team to host our data securely. It has built a powerful infrastructure for all data that is hosted in our private cloud. We landed on this platform due to its performance and the total cost required for deployment. It gives us all tools required for a private virtual network.

The IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is being used widely throughout our organization for [the] migration of applications and databases to the cloud environment for increasing the accessibility to our application at comparatively lower cost with significantly improved performance. The performance over cloud infrastructure needs some initial optimization. The server hardware cost and relevant technical maintenance cost are almost eliminated.

We use IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) as an experimental environment and to give us accessible computer resources without endangering our internal infrastructure. The VPC allows us to leverage several newer technologies without the typical hurdles of approvals from various IT departments. Specifically, our data science work is developed on virtual cloud. Again, this allows for free use of the toolsets in the data science platforms for easy and fast implementations for our business use cases.

We started to use the [IBM Cloud Virtual Cloud] (VPC) (gen1) platform as a quick and easy way to provide connectivity from several on-premise networks into the IBM cloud using IPSEC site to site VPN's. At the time, the VPC (gen1) platform also provided the necessary connectivity to the Power Series networks. This was completed prior to setting up a gateway appliance within the Classic Inf. Gen1 VPC's are now being deprecated in favor of Gen2.

We use IBM Cloud [Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)] in our team for dynamically scaling our compute capacity as the application needs it. As our application's demands change significantly on a minute-to-minute basis, we've found it much simpler and cheaper to use IBM Cloud to dynamically provision resources than to reserve the application's maximum needed capacity in our internal IT infrastructure.

IBM VPC is becoming the core service for our Software As a Service initiative. Our core services are being migrated from other cloud vendors (Google and AWS) for three key reasons: flexibility on hybrid strategies, simplicity on implementation, the availability of migrating on-premises services based on AIX and I-series to cloud without much of a problem.

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.

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.
