Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

We use IBM Cloud, its virtual servers and an approximately 15 IBM services and microservices. We have used and built on Bluemix, both for testing and evaluation of code efficiency, as well as for cost evaluation and estimation of budgets.

We have also built final solutions in the IBM cloud for third parties, reducing costs (compared to similar services in AWS and Azure).
  • Easy customization and configuration of a virtual server.
  • Easy and fast delivery of generated service
  • Security, firewall and incredible capabilities to link to other IBM services and microservices
  • It is necessary to verify that the DNS has been correctly generated since if there are errors.
  • There is a type of deploy that does not allow to increase the details of the already generated.
  • We have been able to calculate that the cost of using Virtual Servers at IBM is much cheaper than other services.
  • The possibility of selling the service could provide extra income
As a startup if we had not used IBM Cloud, it would not have been possible for us to do as many tests and as easily as we did with IBM Cloud.
Actually the help provided by IBM to give a much lower price, is an impact on what you can do and try.
Our latest Virtual Server deployment has Mongo, Express, React and Node. And we chose this stack for the orientation of the app:
  • Watson Discovery
  • Watson Conversation
  • Mobile App Deploy
  • Cloud Foundry applications
  • Twilio
  • App ID
  • Kubernetes
When you need to create tests with a service type or server-specific configuration. You can create your own programming stack and custom scenarios.
