Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

We use IBM cloud services for production servers and testing servers. We directly host our development to VPC for client approvals before final deployment to [the] production environment. After clients' approvals, we proceed to [the] production server and delivery. Sometimes before delivering to clients we need to test more load and some other things that work under our organization and it should be in our infrastructure only so IBM VPC is [the] best option for us.
  • IBM VPC connect through any ssh and it's easy to handle it through any instance.
  • Public key and private key for access server is best part in security concerns.
  • Lightweight application to be easy to host on VPC rather than software as a service.
  • Need to improve in ubuntu updates
  • Dashboard should have all infrastructure reports
  • SSH key should automatically generated
  • Its improved as CICD for us.
  • Manage repository through github.
  • Dedicated machines
This is [a] cost-effective solution infrastructure as a service as monthly or hourly charges which reduce [the] cost of development as you use it as per your need. When you are out of work you simply stop service and it's no billing for particular the session when your service is stopped. This saves [a] lot of your development cost.
You can reserve as much as 20VM as per your need and you can turn [it] on and off as per your development process.
This operation lets you save and reserve all of your development processes in [a] safe environment [that] can be [accessed] from your development machine. This is [the] best part of IBM [Cloud Virtual Servers].
Dedicated host is not used by our organization.
AWS ec2 instance sometimes stops accidentally without any cloud watch alarms and sometimes instance not reachable. I used to connect with support for it but [it] never got resolved. IBM Cloud [Virtual Servers] has dedicated support with free support options and direct call facilities which is [the] best part of it. [Their] response is quick.
  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
It's suited best for hosting small-scale applications and managing [them] through any repository. You have total control over hosting and manage it through any instance from local machines to [the] hosting server. If you host your application on VPC all resources are in your control like php.ini Apache and many others.
