Overall Satisfaction with IBM Compose

We are using IBM Compose for :
- PostGres: We retain and compute Location Data and queries.
- MongoDB: We retain system logs.
- MySQL: We retain user Data.

Scaling, backups clustering, and pricing were a problem from other competitors; this is where IBM killed the competition and helped us secure our data

It is being used across the whole technical solution and as a web service.
  • Pricing
  • Clustering
  • Scaling -> Load Balancers
  • Reduce need for human maintenance
  • Pricing has been increasing lately. IBM Compose is in much in need for a control panel and documentation
  • Decreased the cost on both, sandbox and production
  • Pay as you go, along with price decrease in tier elevation comes very much as a bonus to the technical requirements from the business perspective.
If a system admin wants to spend less time on setting up their infrastructure, IBM Compose comes in handy. You don't have to worry about scaling and load balancers, IBM Compose takes care of that in a very systematic way. Price even decreases the more the tiers increase.

We became so dependent on IBM Compose that we even migrated our sandbox servers to use its features.
