"Fast , consistent and reliable Development of Applications."

What do you like best?

IBM Bluemix was initially based off Cloud Foundry's open technology. It is a cloud computing platform as a service that supports the full lifecycle, from introductory improvement, through all testing stages, to arrangement. Cloud Foundry introduces the concepts of Organizations which we like the most and it contain Spaces which you can consider as workspaces. Diverse spaces commonly correspond to various lifecycle stages for an application.

What do you dislike?

Some functionality are not scalable as OpenWhisk . And our application has to be stateless, so for most of them this is really a good thing but it is a disadvantage .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Developers use Cloud Foundry across each stage of the application improvement life-cycle, a holder based design suited for a multi-cloud condition. That conveyability translates to a capacity to use the cloud platform that is the best fit for the application, without refactoring the application itself. IBM Cloud is a Cloud Foundry Certified Provider for its progressed PaaS capabilities.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IBM Cloud Foundry Functions are great tools to actualize transformation, in a 'serverless' way, where the custom rationale is hosted on a completely overseen and elastic cloud platform which makes our task in association considerably easier and scalable .

That means you can use IBM Cloud anyplace on the planet you may have an office. IBM Cloud Foundry delivers data center and cloud services plus significantly more. The multifaceted nature of some of the solutions is such that you're presumably going to require IBM's services to exploit the most progressive applications.

What do you dislike?

Absence of automation in areas and comprehensive administrative control plan . Also , it doesn't beat contender Amazon Web Services (AWS) in our IaaS solutions .

Execution test the infrastructure to ensure an easy method to contrast with your on premises servers . Also , the integration of the IBM Cloud Foundry with other IBM services is very dynamic and scalable .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IBM Cloud Foundry lets us use the company's Infrastructure Management System (IMS) to control it. Anyway our essential interface will be the IBM Cloud Catalog for most activities.

"IBM Cloud Foundry Review"

What do you like best?

Intuitive user interface makes it user friendly. Support and help is highly available.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have search/querying capabilities in conversation service. It needs visualization capabilities particularly in conversation service. It needs annotation capabilities for dialog notes in conversation service.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pros:

Development of information architecture/library and enablement of better classification/taxonomy, leading to more intuitive findability.

- Dialog design and content retrieval for virtual agents. (e.g. a virtual agent whose content offerings are not hard-coded into the response fields, but instead require crawling/drawing from other pages/libraries)

Cons:

- Annotation/labeling/clustering of information that will be retrieved using a different search/query Suited:service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As IBM Cloud Foundry has capability to integrate well with external platforms, APIs and programs with not just IBM services but with various other platforms, I could create new applications, migrate existing ones pretty smoothly.

CF is complex environment to build and run. That's not really an IBM issue, though.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Supported distros can significantly reduce operational complexity.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Best Cloud Platform in the market"

What do you like best?

Okay. Firstly this product saves a lot of money and time. Cloud is the next big thing for any corporations and its paramount that these platforms are updated timely and IBM does this best. Even though there are issues with the user experience(making it harder to navigate), the level of scalability that it provides is provided by very few in the market.

What do you dislike?

There is a need to work on the user experience. Also, if the prices can be lowered , there's high chance that medium range organisations adopt to this platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please improve the user experience.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most for private data storage and to provide support to our services.

"Ease of deployment for developers."

What do you like best?

Developers simply focuses on their code without the need to dive into infrastructure or platform related specifics. In comparison to kubernetes, our developers do not need to worry about the operational aspects of a deployment. Such as which base images to use, managing of these images, and creating deployment files.

What do you dislike?

Differenciating documentations between IBM Cloud Foundry and Cloud Foundry (OpenSource) can be confusing. When troubleshooting an issue such as CVEs, where a specific jar file has been flagged for vulnerability, it is unclear who to contact for further assistance.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating a fast track and simplified path to the cloud for our developers.

"Best Product for Cloud Computing"

What do you like best?

The IBM Cloud Foundry platform is not just about creating new apps or migrating existing ones, on-prem or off-prem implementations, or offering IaaS and PaaS cloud services. It's designed to bring all of these aspects together to help you solve your real, complex business problems in the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far based on the usage which i have done

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are three key apps we’d like to focus on for the Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment. These examples show how apps work on Cloud Foundry and on this isolated Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment, and they also provide proof of the great application deployment capabilities.

"very useful tool for collaborating the work remotely "

Although there are many cloud softwares available in the market, this one is pretty quick and efficient. We are a team of 15 developers and this comes very useful especially during that time of deployment where you can work remotely and update the code to the cloud.

What do you dislike?

This just works best. Nothing to dislike. But a clear walkthrough can be given of other tasks which can be performed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaborating and updating code, sharing files and apps.

"IBM does is very well indeed."

What do you like best?

Cloud Foundry without the lock-in you get from those "other guys"

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there was a full .NET, not just .NET Core 2.0. However, it's a limitation of CF, not IBM.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider making your code base cloud-native.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of them! We're refactoring away over a decade of technical debt into a cloud-native code base, and along the way we're training developers on the latest in Agile and DevOps.

What do you like best?

Once we got cloud foundry set up our developers had a fairly easy time building Watson POCs.
