Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud PaaS (formerly IBM Bluemix - PaaS)

Currently, it is used for the development of an API for a payment services directive. We are a bank within EU and have to implement such a solution.
  • Speed - with a few regions we can always load balance for maximum performance.
  • Availabilty - anywhere, anytime.
  • Usability - everything in one place. Usage metrics and services.
  • Maybe a better user management interface. Every region and all users in one view.
  • We are in a phase of development and we will see in the future.
We are moving in the direction of open technologies and are rapidly developing new solutions on the latest solutions so having CloudFoundry was definitely one of the key factors for having/using IBM Bluemix.
Our plan is to work on machine learning technologies and solutions but not for now. But in a period of 2-5 years.
We use Docker internally for development and are currently looking into possibility to have it on production.
We did not use it.
We are IBM customers for years and it was our intention to work with IBM in the future so it was a logical decision to go with Bluemix.
It is especially suited for highly available solutions that need to run 24/7 across the whole world.
