What do you like best?

The advantages of having IBM Cloud virtual servers is that the latency and speed is wonderful, they all work at peak performance and there are few drops. The speed with which a VPS instance is deployed is something to consider.

The API manager is simple and for connoisseurs of IT terminology it is very basic to create and adjust the configuration of the VPS.

Compute work of a large company can be perform with this virtual servers.

You can develop applications and server hosting on various operating systems.

Among other features, you can create custom images, you can generate SSH keys, security group, etc.

VPS hosting provider from a reliable company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You have very few options to choose the region of the servers, since it only has 5 regions at the moment. This is important, since the latency is increased in a region farther from your location.

In cases of a VPS crash, which often occurs, it is necessary to have a backup program in the cloud of a third-party company on virtual servers.

Instance monitoring lacks in resources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

IBM CLOUD Virtual Server is made for personal developers, developers within a small or large company work group. Every IaaS solution requires a good workflow management and this has it. VPS are fine, fast, and secure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our IT department where I work has several solutions for virtual private servers and the main reason for its use has to do with the scalability management of the applications on our servers. It means we create, edit and test our applications within servers in the cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Le caratteristiche tecniche che sono buone e il marchio stesso che è anche affidabile e per l'organizzazione la maggior parte della società ha bisogno di un marchio di fiducia che fornisce spazio di archiviazione virtuale o cloud e supporta tutti i sistemi operativi come Windows, Linux ecc. E buona parte è facile per configurare il cloud in ufficio, se è possibile; t quindi è possibile leggere le istruzioni fornite con il prodotto, indipendentemente dal fatto che tu sia una persona IT o no. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Stanno disattivando in modo aggressivo servizi e data center e ci stanno costringendo a migrare server relativamente nuovi verso altri data center e potrebbero rispondere più rapidamente a ticket / casi, questo non è un cloud provider ma un inferno, dilettanti allo sbaraglio, non meritano recensioni positive! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sono molto adatti per ambienti di applicazioni Web e code di lavoro, ed è per questo che li stiamo utilizzando. Se hai bisogno di più assistenza per l'amministratore di sistema, non sono adatti perché si aspettano che tu esegua la maggior parte della configurazione del server. Il loro supporto può essere molto pratico a volte ed è diventato ancora di più con il passaggio da Soft Layer a IBM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Utilizziamo IBM Cloud, i suoi server virtuali e circa 15 servizi e micro servizi IBM. Abbiamo utilizzato e basato su Blue mix, sia per testare e valutare l'efficienza del codice, sia per valutare i costi e stimare i budget. Abbiamo anche creato soluzioni finali nel cloud IBM per terze parti, riducendo i costi (rispetto a servizi simili in AWS e Azure) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Security, firewall and incredible capabilities to link to other IBM services and microservices Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They are aggressively decommissioning services and data centers and forcing us to migrate relatively new servers to other data centers.They could respond more quickly to tickets/cases Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They are very well suited for web application environments and job queues, which is what we are using them for. If you need more sys admin assistance they are not a good fit because they expect you to do most of the server configuration. Their support can be very hands-off at times and has become even more so with the transition from Soft Layer to IBM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We use IBM Cloud, its virtual servers and an approximately 15 IBM services and micro services. We have used and built on Blue mix, both for testing and evaluation of code efficiency, as well as for cost evaluation and estimation of budgets.We have also built final solutions in the IBM cloud for third parties, reducing costs (compared to similar services in AWS and Azure) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
