We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Spectrum Computing's best features are its speed, robustness, and data processing and analysis.""The most valuable aspect of the product is the policy driving resource management, to optimize the computing across data centers."

More IBM Spectrum Computing Pros →

"The multi-cloud integrations and the DevOps and operational integrations are the most valuable. Morpheus platform is a centralized set to manage different clouds and your on-premise platforms. It does a very good job of what it is designed to do. It is very good in terms of features. It is extremely stable and easy to install. It is also very scalable. Their support is also extremely good.""It supports many features, and it also supports some of the automation that Cloudify supports. So, in addition to just giving you basic platform management—such as the ability to deploy virtual machines and have multitenancy to log in and perform all of your basic platform management tasks—it also supports automation. You can, for example, spin up three virtual machines, and you can have each virtual machine configure each other. You can do service chaining with it. You can run scripts in Dash and Python, or you can use tools like Ansible, Puppet, or Chef. All of this is just built into the tool. It is a very powerful tool."

Cons
"Spectrum Computing is lagging behind other products, most likely because it hasn't been shifted to the cloud.""We'd like to see some AI model training for machine learning."

More IBM Spectrum Computing Cons →

"The tool could support virtual network functions better. It is really good at doing enterprise-type of things, but one of the things on which we're working with them is loading very complex virtual machines with it, such as Juniper SRX routers. It needs to support more complex virtualized resources a little bit better. Aside from that, it is a terrific tool. We really like it.""Morpheus is working hard on creating an integration framework due for release in Q2 2021 which will allow clients to create their own interfaces and integrations into any 3rd party product that has a full-function API. Morpheus is also heavily focussed on enhancing the container management side to compete head-to-head with Openshift and CloudForms in Q3 2021."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Spectrum Computing is one of the most expensive products on the market."
  • More IBM Spectrum Computing Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Licensing is on an annual basis, and it is upfront for the year. There is no extra cost unless you want additional support or specific deployment packs."
  • "We had 5,000 virtual machines. It seems that they initially wanted 200K for 5,000 virtual machines, and our procurement team has dropped that down to the 100K level. They license based on the number of virtual machines that Morpheus is managing. So, it is a pay-as-you-grow model."
