Power Systems Virtual Server on IBM Cloud for AIX/Linux

Overall Satisfaction with IBM Power System Virtual Server

This tool was used by our organization for both app/program development all within a cloud environment. These servers gave us a very easy to use API integration and also was very trusted for security. There was very little latency and response time was high for hosting multiple websites, email servers, etc.
  • Security, security, Security!
  • Ability to for cloud management
  • Easy to use API configurations for other system integrations
  • Pretty costly compared to other solutions in the market
  • Server updates can cause the whole system to go down from time to time
  • Service can be slow when it comes to ticket issues

Would you buy IBM Power Virtual Server again?


  • Saved time/money/effort with less downtime with other servers in previous times
  • More trust in overall business with more secure severs
  • Truly expensive, but you get what you pay for with a top notch product
The security in my opinion is the best feature of IBM Power System Virtual Servers. There is no doubt that cloud capabilities are the future, and for this product to be as fast and secure as possible but still in the cloud has made our business quicker in terms of data tracking and reporting.
Not just avoiding user errors, but the ability to collaborate and make updates within a single platform is key to any fast, turnkey business. This is something that any org that uses the tool to manage all projects whether it be sites, email, applications should consider with its easy integrations and more!
IBM Power System Virtual Server is well suited because they have very fast, cloud based servers that are secure and able to be used with vast amounts of data. Scenarios where this would be less ideal would be if you are dealing with teams who are abroad and require servicing or support in local language, but otherwise, highlight recommend.
