We are using IBM Cloud as our main infrastructure for a SaaS solution my company is commercializing. We developed it for a first customer and now we are reselling it to a lot of customers as a multitenant solution. We do all the solution lifecycle.For example, we have mobile apps for condominium owners and another for gatekeepers, a web portal for the administration staff. The core of the solution has its backend is on IBM Cloud.

Our team creates systems that do analytics for solar parks. We develop a system that creates preemptive alerts to forecast problems before they happen, so we can tell their operations and management teams onsite what to attend to and what to look for before a problem arises. What we do is get all the data into the cloud, and we do our analysis there, then we end up with some alerts and send those alerts back to the team to tell them what to look for. These are our use cases for IBM Public Cloud.

My primary use for IBM Cloud is to have it act as a dedicated server for my database. Other use cases include using it for telco, telecom services. I needed a dedicated server for the database. Many apps in the market actually use my database for their services, so that is why I need a dedicated, reliable server.

We are a managed service provider and IBM Cloud is one of the products that we use to provide services for our clients. We have a large number of customers who are in different industries and some of them are moving from a traditional data center to the cloud.

My clients' use cases are for their private data where there's concern about the data being exposed. If it is on the public cloud whether it's performance issues or issues around disaster recovery or resilience, we tend to have the data help on-prem or on the cloud and then processing done on the public cloud.

Our primary use for IBM Cloud is checking our products, our deployment environment, and testing their dynamic/static states.

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.
