Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

At one instance, there was a fire in our data center and the backup power had some issues because of which the whole DC went down. I believe with AKS and the replication it's easier to handle such a situation. Also, the scenario would have been pretty transparent to the end-users.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

OpenShift is well suited if you want to use docker and [Kubernetes] but you want to hide the complexity of these two technologies. It gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, builds process, and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure it for each application.

Microsoft support was really good, whenever we raise any ticket they come back to us within a couple of hours.

I think response time for IBM Cloud support should be improved.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

The ability to create new instances (i.e. elastic provisioning) is probably the fastest with Azure Kubernetes Service compared to the alternatives that I have looked at. From a pricing perspective, Microsoft always seems to find a way to be more competitive in this area, and literally every other field they play in.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

We are using IBM Cloud App ID as a simple method to get an OIDC provider for our applications, that are running within the OpenShift cluster. Also, IBM Cloud Object Storage is used within the workload to store data via an s3 compliant way. The IBM Cloud Container Registry is an easy way to store the container images, that are used within the OpenShift cluster. Especially we configured the system in such a way to stop the image delivery if the container images are vulnerable. IBMs Cloud Pak for Integration and Business Automation is providing a rich feature set, that is tackling a lot of use-cases. They are both installable in the provided cluster easily.

Return on Investment

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

  • Positive impact in moving applications to cloud from the in-hose data center to save cost
  • Sometimes got affected with some bugs on the AKS infrastructure but hasn't caused a big kios as our production footprint in AKS is not yet high

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

  • Provided easy to use dev experience for devs without kube experience
  • Provided a secure rbac solution for many different teams running workloads on the same cluster
