Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

Hybrid cloud initiative, another site as our data center recovery.

It's a challenge to have another site as DR and maintaining it to the level of our product site. IBM Cloud allows us not to worry about maintaining another site. It's easy to get started with IBM cloud, transferring initial seeds, and maintaining replicating data.
  • Easy to get started if you know the basics
  • Lower cost compared to other storage backup solutions
  • Easy to scale as you grow
  • Easy to maintain with minimal manual oversight
  • The integration services could be more robust
  • The pilot programs could be more user-friendly
  • Education and training could be more comprehensive for beginners
  • No CapEx
  • Better OpEx
IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions covers all aspects of IT needs for the customers that we work with. For the customers looking to get rid of a second site as a backup (which is more expensive and time-consuming than a data recovery backup solution), it's easy to use and a better way to store information.
IBM has been great for service and support. From the beginning, they helped our team learn the software so that we can help educate our clients on it. We want to make sure our clients are as confident as they can be in their backup storage, and IBM has helped equip us to do that.
IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions is better for clients on a dollar to dollar basis compared to AWS Backup. It allows customers to easily see how much resources they are using in the cloud (a feature not fully available with AWS). This helps save them money and be smarter with their backup storage.
IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions is great - especially if you have a small IT staff and deal with challenges on day to day basis on keeping the environment up to date, not allowing to do new things and focus on new business objectives and goals. IBM cloud can address a need to have migrated IAAS or DRAAS. It's a cost-effective solution.
