"IBM Cloud Functions - Function as a Service (FaaS) Platform"

What do you like best?

IBM cloud functions are based on OpenWhisk . Apache OpenWhisk’s triggers which are used to launch serverless apps deployed on its platform are based on either webhooks or polling using a predefined schedule.

What do you dislike?

Services like AWS Lambda are more scalable than IBM Cloud function service as it has also the support of AWS S3 . AWS Lambda and Azure Functions target their offerings as what Google Cloud and OpenWhisk can do, and they can be launched via an incoming event from one of many sources or by leveraging a schedule.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

OpenWhisk has an idea called sustains which include recovering a flood of information from a source framework. A feed can be fleeting and overseen inside the serverless capacity, or utilize an idea called associations which use an outside supplier with a determined association with the source framework

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

We are using IBM to trigger a IoT application like when sensor passes certain value , IBM Function is triggered and the notification is send to cloud to perform certain actions .

"Cost effective solution in cloud based solutions."

What do you like best?

I liked the feature that it works very well even without many manual interventions from dev and support sentimental analysis to analyse the chats is a very good function from ICF.

What do you dislike?

Even though it is supporting most of the functions effectively ,still it needs some more support and need to be integrated to receive some events from services like mongoDB and NOSQL dbs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very best option for lightweight micro service development for cloud based applications.

If you are in need of integrating with many external service providers then ICF is a good choice to make.

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

We are using IBM cloud functions to create enterprise level platforms to do event based processing. We are using ICF to get the data from backend systems also .

"Development okay. Billing nightmare."

What do you like best?

Service was easy to integrate. Documentation was sufficient. The service worked as advertised.

What do you dislike?

We received billing shortage notices but there was no way to easily resolve online. There was no contact information to resolve. We used email but subsequent emails later seemed to show that the matter hadn't been settled. The matter was finally settled although no longer recall exactly how.

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

Integration of ML algorithms.
