Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

We have deployed all our services in IBM Cloud Virtual Servers. It serves all HTTP and HTTPS requests for corp CMS, application, and API for internet users.
  • Global private network (between US and Asia)
  • Each Virtual Server has the flexibility to have [a] different NIC with Pub and Private access
  • Flexibility in size up and down
  • Console access. The current one is so out of date that requires Java plugin.
  • Better builtin VPN server access with modern protocols
  • Improved global performance of our applications
  • Improved DR because of multiple Data Centers
  • Storage replication function increase risk mitigation
Cloudflare is awesome for [a] global edge -- accelerate end-user accessibility. We use IBM Cloud Virtual Servers as the backend service layer.
Easily get up and running. Especially for startups. Global presence. Also for startups need credits to try.
Unfortunately, there is no presence within China should you need cloud service there.
