Likelihood to Recommend

Google Kubernetes Engine

At the moment, the best-managed cluster on the market. Quick deployment with quite specific project requirements. The mesh ingress (istio) allowed the building of a quite complicated upgrade process for applications.

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, build process and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure for each application.

If you are familiar with the Google Cloud Platform, the Kubernetes Engine is a natural addition. It uses the same easy interface and can be tied into an organization's existing Google Cloud infrastructure. For an organization new to Kubernetes, we were impressed by how easy it is to use and get an application operational.

Very good Kubernetes distribution with a reasonable total price. Integration with storage and load balancer for ingress and services speed up every process deployment.

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

Alternatives Considered

Google Kubernetes Engine

Google Kubernetes Engine has better upgrades and auto-scale management. Google Kubernetes Engine is also the cheapest option for managed Kubernetes, and Google is the principal contributor to the Kubernetes project.

We tested Red Hat OpenShift on premise but we decided to go for a public cloud to reduce our infrastructure and pay for what we use.

Return on Investment

Google Kubernetes Engine

  • GKE has reduced our costs by automating load balancing, autoscaling and complex networking which is now managed as code
  • There's a time cost to train staff about docker and k8s which can be time consuming

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

  • Improved the release of new versions of applications.
  • Possibility to quickly change the processing capacity.
