Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Cloud Foundry pricing:
  • "IBM has a free tier and payment option depending on the products selected."
  • "You are allocated a minimum amount of resources in the free tier. This seems fair and highly scalable, as you pay per usage as per cloud pricing schemes."
  • "The pricing models should be reworked to the needs of a wider range of companies. Some customers will not be able to afford it until quite a few years into production, even after good PoC results and a successful launch."

Node-RED shortens the amount of time required to develop, test, and deploy new applications. Eventually, you will crave the use of other third-party applications.

What is our primary use case?

The aim was to use the smartphone for an IoT project. Our objectives were to show how sensor data generated by the smartphone could be sent, stored, and visualized using the MQTT protocol. Environment consisted of following prerequisites: * Ubuntu * Node-RED * Node.js * Web service We made use of the IBM Watson IoT Platform, a cloud-hosted service, instead of building a platform from scratch. Then, we created web apps on IBM Cloud Foundry that processes, visualizes, and stores the data. We also had to design the flow in Node-RED.

Pros and Cons

  • "IBM is the only vendor to offer integration with blockchain for smart contract development."
  • "My favorite component of IBM's solution is Node-RED, which greatly shortens the amount of time required to develop, test, and deploy new applications."
  • "After the initial excitement period with Node-RED is over, you crave the need of additional integrations to third-party services."
