Likelihood to Recommend

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Azure Kubernetes service works well, installs easily, is robust and is constantly updated. It uses a great environment when you're running a bunch of servers handling user traffic. The monitoring is quite nice too. Except for the monitoring tools for the database. Azure Kubernetes service still doesn't support autoscaling of nodes. It takes time to fully set up. But once you get going it’s fine.

CoreOS rkt / Container Linux (project ended)

CoreOS rkt is well suited for any development environment where operating systems and hardware are not homogeneous. CoreOS rkt allows us to write code on one machine with the confidence that it will work on any other. This has been immensely helpful as our developers are often switching to the latest and greatest machines and operating systems. CoreOS rkt is less suited for environments that are not Software as a Service. There is often no need to bring the entire developer environment and associated dependencies when delivering a one time product. In these environments CoreOS rkt just adds unneeded overhead.
