Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

IBM Cloud Virtual Servers has helped to implement virtualized, single-tenant, dedicated servers. We already had a setup on IBM P series and planned to migrate the setup on Cloud. Took help form the vendor i.e. IBM on the support documents and I must say they have maintained the KB very well and are self sufficient to help implement the migration. This was a setup of Migration from 70 IBM P-series servers to IBM Cloud Virtual environment.
  • Migration
  • Cost Analysis
  • Monitoring integration
  • Licensing
  • Disk Latency analysis
  • Further API integration
  • Performance
  • HIGH Availability
  • Cost reduction
This has literally reduced the cost of the overall setup as we were paying a lot on the DC pricing and further AMC values where clients used to encounter the high outages and some places where the point in time recovery was almost not-possible. The cost has reduced to almost 60% of what we used to pay before.
This has helped customers to easily have a better understanding of the security setup and as I mentioned the high availability is better due to the feature IBM cloud used to auto-assign the placement for the impacted hosts and thus helps in reduction in downtime and engineers were able to easily manage the setup.
  • IBM Cloud Functions
This has helped in the below listed cases - *Small setup where hosts are like 50-100 *Already on IBM environment and has the dependency of the systems. *Customer has regained trust in the IBM products in the past as it becomes a little difficult for some new clients to understand the IBM licensing and cost analysis.
