If you are an enterprise, or even just one person handling the solution for multiple clients, you will need to get a license. That said, you don't have to pay for licenses if you're an individual developer, but if you're handling a little more load, then you need to pay for licenses.

The IBM Cloud is priced well, and much lower than offerings by the competitors. The commercial model is different from the other providers. In order to be competitive, you have to commit to a contract for at least one year, but you pay a fixed monthly fee. This is one of the advantages because, with the competitors, the amount you pay varies every month.

Pricing is not as fair as Amazon or Azure. It needs improvement.

The licensing fees are straightforward and predictable.

The price of IBM Cloud is very cheap compared to competitors AWS and Azure. The licensing fees are billed on a monthly basis and some costs vary between cities. For example, data centers in smaller cities will cost less. The savings in operating costs of a remote data center are passed on to the customer. Premium support is available for an additional cost.

We are using the trial version of this solution, so we have not paid anything.
