Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions

I have used it to migrate my existing setup from traditional OS to IBM Cloud platforms hosted systems and this is really easy to migrate and maintain the LPM functionality. It was being used by one of our clients and has really helped them ensure better monitoring of their infrastructure and maintain availability.
  • High availability
  • Monitoring
  • OS performance
  • [Needs a] better sales deck to make more customers aware.
  • API integration
  • Monitoring HA events
  • Better customer reporting
  • License management and auditing
  • Cost management
I would like to say that this product [IBM Cloud VMware Solutions] really helped to migrate the existing setup to the cloud easily, as IBM's support team is really good with documentation. Our client had a one-stop backup and compliance solution. There were [a] few cases of performing recovery too, which was sorted easily as a backup solution [which] is handy.
It was pretty easy. IBM was already very helpful to the client as they were using multiple P Series setups, the migration was easy and simple. The teams gathered all the requirements and guided us to maintain backup and procedures were explained in well-defined KBs. They have teams who are already experts in migrating VMware solutions as APIs are easy .

Yes, using IBM products is really good if you are an existing user for IBM PVU licensing. This provides good integration and understanding of the setup. IBM is a little complex at first but once you start using it, it would be the easiest thing to learn and explain to teams. Go ahead and stay with it to have a perfect environment and stability.
If you need a quick IBM product to migrate without thinking of risk of regular AWS outages, this is the right platform to use. Also if you are already dependent on PVU licensing, go ahead with another IBM product.

It is less appropriate if you are already on VMware or Vsphere, as you will identify the difference of ease.
