Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers

We originally was using the servers for hosting docker containers and several VDI’s with no complaints. The speed and setup was amazing and a breeze. It’s now got to the point where I now use IBM servers to host my personal projects with no problems. I was even able to setup a DNS Adblock using one of the servers and now have my (personal) network directing the queries through there first with more privacy.

Pros

  • Speed
  • Ease of use
  • Support

Cons

  • The pricing
  • Positive on saving costa
The pricing has made a substantial difference between several other providers. Once fully optimized we were able to actually run MORE servers due to the cost savings, as it becomes a break-even in the previous price we were paying for a lesser amount of servers. Although we’re still in the testing phase, we shall see once the deployment freeze ends
We have not used this feature, as we’re still in the testing phase of >10 servers. We will slowly increase/move servers in the next couple of months, but I do hope to manage to try this feature out in the near future. However, there are many other features that are provided, that are still being tested with no problems.
We have not used this fedayure,
The support works we enough where we found out that we can reduce our cost from switching from a different provider. In the long run, anything we can save matters, and once everything was optimized, we clearly saw the difference. Another thing I liked was the catalog, giving access to deploy packages to the different servers.
