Power Systems Virtual Server on IBM Cloud for AIX/Linux

Overall Satisfaction with IBM Power System Virtual Server

The programme is particularly valuable for industries that must ensure that their infrastructure is free of threats. As a result, I believe IBM's Power System Virtual Server is well-suited to a variety of industries. It is ideal for high-growth small and medium-sized organisations who need to extend their infrastructure as they expand and want a dependable server to deploy automation code, scripts, or applications and operate them in the cloud 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I would not recommend it to firms whose IT departments are unfamiliar with IBM products, since they would be better served by using competitors' products that they are familiar with. It has excellent performance capabilities, as well as scalable capacity that manages resource usage. Furthermore, the tool's efficiency is enhanced by its integration with another useful and helpful programme, such as SAP. This is ideal for speeding up artificial intelligence operations or large data applications. There are cheaper and easier-to-set-up solutions for simple activities like running automation. Data was migrated from the local to the cloud, and it was monitored. It can become stuck at times, but it can still be used without any problems.
  • Its accuracy and reliability makes it top notch, because of this we can depend on it.
  • User interface is very easy which makes it easy to learn.
  • Any workload and virtualization solution can be created using IBM technology.
  • It is a complete tool that also supports other languages such as JAVA and Python, and it is beneficial to us.
  • The software appears to be geared for a no-programming approach, which implies that making changes is more difficult.
  • The user base is small making it monotonous and difficult to come up with new methods.
  • The number of rankings is not as large as competitors.
  • The admin end is poorly designed, as they are unable to receive and respond to client feedback.
