"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"This product is very competitive."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"I have been satisfied with the stability."
"The performance is good."
"The technology is very good, it performs well."
"For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors."
"It is easy to deploy what you need for the initial setup"
"There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product."
"This is a predictable and dependable service."
"One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware."
"The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good."
"I've found the stability to be excellent. The performance is good."
"Its security can be improved."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors."
"It is a good solution, except for the cost."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved."
"Dell EMC ECS could improve by having Relational Database Services(RDS) to review progress. Additionally, if the training was provided it would be a benefit, it would be good for our engineers."
"There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved."
"The product should offer more computing, similar to Amazon."
"They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved."
"It could be more secure."
"The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement."
"The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right."
"They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities."
