IBM Cloud Code Engine

It is very well suited for anything that can be put into a container, especially if horizontal scaling is possible with the product you are building. It just works.
Also, [it is well suited] to quickly push things into production, as there is not much ceremony. Just push a container, create application and off you go. Also, it's very appropriate with uneven loads as it easily scales both up and down.
It is less appropriate when [you are using] a static computer or to retain data somehow and you don't want to use network storage of some kind or database (just save things locally).

It's well-suited for internal service connectivity inside the IBM cloud. If you are using other IBM products then [IBM Cloud Kubernetes] is very suitable to use. For example using IBM blockchain service [IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service] is very helpful. Services that associated with internal IBM cloud components are easy to access and use.

Pros

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • Better insight details
  • Better engagement
  • Pay as u go

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

  • IBM has a strong focus on serverless and Kubernetes. This shows in the platform. Deploying containers to Kubernetes was very easy.
  • Deploying a Kubernetes cluster through the GUI is very easy and quick. On top of that, IBM Cloud offers a single node cluster for Free.
  • Container Registry is a very good product for managing container images. Integration with Kubernetes was seemless.
  • Portability. To transition from Google Cloud Kubernetes to IBM Cloud Kubernetes took almost no effort. We mostly use the CLI and the standard tools such as kubectl were present.

Cons

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • It is limited to 100 apps per project
  • It is limited to 100 jobs per project
  • The total combination for all of the apps and jobs cannot exceed 256 GB of memory

  • Free Kubernetes Cluster provides 2 vCPUs 4GB RAM . I suggest to increase this quota and duration of free trial so that more PoC and demos can be done on IBM cloud. The more the developer community is comfortable with IBM Cloud Portal interface, the more popular it will become which in turn will bring more business.

We have our application running on a CentOS compartment on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. We have been utilizing the help since IBM Cloud initially dispatched. We liked the adaptability and versatility that IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service give us. Since we are tiny, the Kubernetes administration is just utilized at present inside my venture bunch.

Kubernetes is perfect. The Kubernetes API is one of my favorite tools for automating a deployment pipeline. Deployments become more reliable and faster because we no longer deal with VMs. Our deployments have become more reliable because it’s easier to test and ship containers.

The self-guided support was solid, and there are plenty of online videos to guide first time users, but I think one area of improvement is a faster way to transfer a large quantity of files from our local machine to the cloud for storage (Aspera)

Online training is really an important resource for using these tools. IBM's help center is rich in useful information and tips. Also, external guides and tutorials are available (e.g. on youtube), but I followed only IBM ones and I had no difficulties.

Ease of use. Very intuitive. We have been looking for a product that allows us to orchestrate our docker containers in a way where it allows us to effectively scale our applications to production. It also provides us a way of monitoring all our infrastructure in a very clear concise way.

I say IKS still has a more to work, while it benefits in being an early adopter like GKE, most of these services are easier to work on when it comes to web management, something the IKS lacks and needs to improve since its release because of how well-established the management flow works on these platforms.

IBM's CKS does not offers automatic autoscaling nor vertical scaling (automatic). Other services like Google Kubernetes Engine scales up and down very well

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • [One] positive is that we have one tool to learn (and a simple one) for all kinds of deployment. We need less people to maintain the system.
  • We have saved a lot of time on trouble shooting. It's clear how it works. It's "just" kubernetes..
Sverrir Valgeirsson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

  • Very cost effective and horizontally scalable serivces.
  • More predictable than spinning up new virtual servers for expansion (Charged by API).
  • Adaptation of all standards including Docker, MongoDB, Node-RED, allows leveraging of existing and Open Source code more reliably to reduce costs.
