Overall Satisfaction with IBM Compose

We use IBM Compose MongoDB servers for one of our web-based software products. It allows us to focus on improving the product and not worry about whether our data is secure and accessible by our clients. This software is used in an on-premise/dedicated instance fashion, so the MongoDB servers are used by multiple instances of the software. We can continue to expand while using IBM Compose to host our data.
  • Regular backups of our data
  • Multiple access points for higher availability
  • Wonderful web-based GUI for accessing and modifying data
  • Powerful server instances with enough dedicated RAM to handle any load thrown at it
  • Specific control over the amount of RAM and storage being used
  • High priced versus some competitors
  • CouchDB support
  • We don't need to hire database engineers to manage database infrastructure.
  • We can give our clients a guarantee when it comes to data reliability and security.
  • Costs are extremely low when compared to the development and support of our product.
Other options are lower priced, however IBM Compose has by far the best interface for managing and editing data within the database. It also has many forms of databases for us to deploy, beyond what we are currently using. So, in the event we need to add other services, we can trust IBM Compose to handle that data for us.
For the size of our application and the amount of use that it gets, IBM Compose fits us quite well. We see tens of thousands of visitors on our site, and this translates to low/moderate impact on the database. In the event that we need to scale beyond this however, the pricing will quickly grow to be unreasonable.
