How to think about IBM vs Packet?
IBM Cloud, which has its roots in SoftLayer, built one of the first automated IT platforms in 2005. Since then, the company has expanded to offer a large array of shared and dedicated hosting solutions, platform services and enterprise cloud services.
IBM Cloud and Packet both offer high-end dedicated servers backed by a global IP network. But after that, the experience is really quite different. Packet is laser focused on delivering infrastructure in a completely automated experience, whereas IBM Cloud offers a massive portfolio of services from servers to security management.
