IBM Cloud Overview

What is IBM Cloud?

IBM Cloud is a cloud infrastructure management software that helps businesses manage applications and data across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. Administrators can utilize routers, firewalls, VPN tunnels, and load balancers to handle physical and virtual networks across the organization.

IBM Cloud provides structured and unstructured data storage and backup with unified automation, scaling, encryption, multi-vaulting capabilities, and network file system (NFS) based file storage. It lets users run synthetic tests to detect, correlate, prioritize, and resolve performance and operational incidents across cloud environments. IBM Watson enables staff members to use natural-language processing, visual recognition, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, language translator, and tone analyzer technologies to prepare and analyze data.

IBM Cloud comes with an API, which lets businesses integrate the system with several third-party solutions. The streaming analytics module allows supervisors to analyze text, videos, audio files, and geospatial and sensor data in real-time. It also lets users audit all cloud activities, encrypt data between client and server applications, and manage all certificates on a secure repository.

I was ordered to do a application with MFP watson cognitive fitures ,voice recordering and text analisys. I started with MFP wich there was almost no info except for the one on the site wich seemes outdated. After making if work i countinued with speach to text wich was easy to implement but then i started creating an orchestrator to handle all the otehr logic so i used a java app deployed on the cloud with dosent take long to configure finaly integrated other services like translate, personality insigths and Tone analyser everything work fine after some configurations.

IBM Cloud - File Management and Web-Conferencing

Used Monthly for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/05/21
Review Source: Capterra

Pros

We use IBM Cloud in conjunction with one of our contract Manufacturing partners. We use it both for file sharing and for holding conference calls. It is very convenient to be able to host both on the same platform, and meetings are typically quite easy to start and reliable (no crashes or kick-outs). The call quality is typically quite good, and we have had no issues with excess feedback, even though the meeting might be joined from a computer and phone line simultaneously. In-meeting file sharing is quite simple, and files can be uploaded into the meeting for easy and quick access, especially convenient if screen sharing is tricky or impractical. The typical on-line meeting tools are present (like raising hands and such), and these are quite useful during large teleconferences where simply interjecting isn’t practical.

Cons

The file management interface is not great, and it can be difficult to find files as the number gets larger. Files can be placed into folders, which is nice, but the interface still makes locating files quite challenging (especially if the exact file name is not known). During meetings, there are certain access levels that can be difficult to figure out, which can make allowing non-hosts to share a little tricky. The interface for shared files is a little awkward, with both a “full screen” [not really] and zoom-in option, but even with both of these the shared file doesn’t take up all (or near all) of the screen, and often requires an in-window scroll to see the whole screen. Not a huge deal, but makes projecting a shared file a little more of a chore and a little less effective than some other web-conferencing interfaces.

Pros

Several tools to work with cognitive human traits.
lots of references and api info
Several lenguage compatibility
several endpoints to work with
Scalabe price guide so allow you to chose what you want.
No hide prices.
Control panels to work with

Cons

Some references are too big that they stuck my web browser , example try the reference of watsing discovery and se the magic.

When you deploy a java app and you want to se the logs you are only allowed to watch useing their web console wich is unefficent.

references needs update , they never tell you that when thier eliminated user and password now there is an specific user and every endpoint just give you the password.

the examples of conecions some time need some little fix up so they dont work as scratch.

Pros

Bluemix makes use of Platform as a Service model than the use of Infrastructure as a Service type like AWS.Cloud Foundry is a good service to use for new things. IBM Cloud is different when compared to all other cloud servers, It provides so many services, maintaining test cases and defects are possible through IBM cloud and it is very simple to use. IBM created a platform for app selling. IBM Cloud makes sure privacy of data is more important like this it protects individual data very carefully. It helps us with testing data analytics tools like FAAS. It supports many programming languages I use python for writing code and also many services. IBM Cloud support have very good agents they solve any of our problems.

Cons

Least I like about this software is that I have experienced some drop in connection which is a problem for continuous usage of cloud services. I know IBM will fix this issue in future.

Cons

Sometimes there are too limitations and the support is not always brilliant.
