Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

We are selling IBM Cloud Virtual Servers to our partners. Our partners use it for different cases. The main reason they choose IBM Cloud Virtual Servers is the fact that it is very easy to use as well as the fact that it is highly scalable and it makes them future proof.
  • Highly scalable.
  • Fast provisioning.
  • Great integration with third party services.
  • Billing items is not clear enough.
  • The catalog can be overwhelming.
  • It's a big switch from CAPEX to OPEX but worth it!
  • The ability to be agile is way more important nowadays.
Transient pricing means we can offer our customers the option to just try the virtual servers. They are free to up- or downscale their virtual servers, however they want. It gives them a big level of trust and the threshold is way lower right now than it was back in the day.
I would choose IBM Cloud because of the support and price performance. IBM Cloud Virtual Servers allows your architecture to grow as your business/traffic grows. It has a very redundant network with customization via VLAN and allows for customization of server specs and architecture design. You can deploy the virtual servers within minutes, so when time is an important factor I would definitely choose IBM Cloud.
