It is a scalable product. You can scale it up and down.

What I like most in IBM Public Cloud is how easy it is to create serverless functions. They are called IBM functions, but in AWS, they are called Lambda functions. Those are pretty standard, and another thing I like the most is that you have fewer restrictions on the amount of data you can transfer across those functions. IBM Public Cloud is way more flexible than AWS.

I also like that IBM Public Cloud is pretty straightforward to integrate. As long as you have all the tools IBM provides you, getting everything up and running is straightforward.

For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors.

There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product.

One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware.

The price of IBM Cloud is most valuable for us. The service is personable and gives us a good rapport. I can't say it's the best, but it was enough for our needs.

Amazon AWS is superior to IBM public for several reasons.  The most important reason is the diversity of software tools, the geographic diversity and availability, lower operating costs and excellent customer service. All cloud companies are simply playing catch-up to AWS.

IBM Public Cloud is IBM’s Platform-as-a-Service. It aims to provide organizations with a secure cloud environment to manage data and applications. One of the features we like is the cloud activity tracker. It allows management and auditing of user activity. This auditing feature is useful in maintaining compliance. On a technical level, we like that the solution provides a bare metal server on subscription. It gives you high availability, flexibility, and performance and is a good value for the price. Another helpful feature is the load balancer. It helps our admins to scale applications without downtime or disrupting traffic flows. In addition, it comes with an application programming interface with plenty of integrations. The platform is easy to use and if you need help, there are plenty of tutorials on the IBM website. Finally, the IBM cloud also works with Android and iOS applications. There is room for improvement, though. Sometimes data transfer can be slow at peak hours. Another downside is the resilient storage. While it is good that IBM keeps a copy of everything in the cloud, you cannot delete their copy. Ever. We researched Azure before ultimately choosing IBM. MS Azure is more of a desktop virtualization platform that helps run virtual machines and apps in the cloud. We liked that you can manually configure desktops in Windows that are accessible on both desktop and mobile. What did we like about Azure? The flexibility allows you to work on multiple projects in multiple languages and technologies. The support is good, the applications are stable, and it has good response time. It has, however, a bit of latency between the data server and the application server. Additionally, it is not very user-friendly and automation is lacking. Everything is manual. Performing a simple task like creating a backup can be very cumbersome. The price is a big downside also. Conclusion We researched MS Azure for our cloud PaaS and IaaS needs but ultimately chose IBM Public Cloud. MS Azure has the advantage of the flexibility and good support but the price of IBM is more competitive and the platform is more user-friendly.
