Overall Satisfaction with IBM Bluemix Infrastructure

We used it for our entire virtualized infrastructure for our production hosting environment.
  • Support Response
  • Lower costs
  • More flexible configurations
  • Lower provisioning times
  • Easier private ip allocation and private network pools
  • Don’t nickel and dime customers to death with things others provide for free or per use (firewalls, private pools, etc)
  • Negative impact. Nearly twice as expensive for half as much in comparison to cloud operators.
I chose to move away from Bluemix to GCP
It’s not suited for anyone that values flexibility. Bluemix is still in an age of thick servers with few IPs and open firewalls—unless you want to pay dearly.

Bluemix is a dying breed. If you want to move onto a manage yourself but control nothing infrastructure feel free.
