IBM Cloud Managed Istio

Currently use for traffic management for IOT edge devices and their sensor data flows. IoT generates lots of data and this data needs to processed at the edge devices before sending the processed result to cloud. Hence there is always ingress and egress data traffic in and out of the IoT edge devices which needs traffic management

[Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)] is the most advanced tool till now, which works as a VMs
and separates any single application from the dependencies. Also, this tool is
helping me in the agile development of the processes. It is strongly recommended to
almost all major organizations.

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

  • Containers - Docker is the go-to when using Containers, which are super useful if you need an environment that works both for Windows and Linux
  • Efficiency - Docker is very lightweight and doesn't demand too much from your CPU or server
  • CI/CD - Docker is excellent for plumbing into your build pipeline. It integrates nicely, is reliable, and has an easy set up.

Cons

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

  • Still missing functionalities for a full usage as traffic director.

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

  • Containers are often opaque - if a container doesn't work out of the box, it's messy to fix.
  • Logging is complexified by the multiple containers and logs are often not piped to places you expect them to be.
  • Networking is complexified due to internal port mapping between containers, etc.

Docker's CLI has a lot of options, and they aren't all intuitive. And there are so many tools in the space (Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, etc) that have their own configuration as well. So while there is a lot to learn, most concepts transfer easily and can be learned once and applied across everything.

IBM has good track record, but we haven't used their support after getting setup initially. However, the training made available by them during our introductory experience was good, and provided us with a lot of useful background knowledge along with guidance on how to address the specific use cases we were looking for.

The community support for Docker is fantastic. There is almost always an answer for any issue I might encounter day-to-day, either on Stack Overflow, a helpful blog post, or the community Slack workspace. I've never come across a problem that I was unable to solve via some searching around in the community.

Implementation Rating

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

We did not use IBM professional services to implement istio. Our experience was such that getting it setup quickly did not require assistance. We did however, make use of IBM's training opportunities at kube con 2019, which included a walkthrough setup of istio on IBM Cloud. This provided us with a strong base on which to build.

It's a cost effective solution for my organization.

We've used XAMPP, PHPmyAdmin and similar local environments (our app is on PHP). Because of how easy you can change the configuration of libraries on PHP and versions (which is SO painful on XAMPP or other friendly LAMP local servers) we are using Docker right now. Also, being sure that the environment is exactly the same makes things easier for developing.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

  • Simplify management and cost of instrumenting our application.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

  • Docker has made it possible for us to deploy code faster, increasing the productivity of our development teams.
  • Docker has made it possible for us to decentralize our build and release system. This means that teams can deploy on their own schedule and our dev ops team can concentrate on building better tools rather than deploying for the teams
  • Docker has allowed us to virtualize our entire development process and made it much simpler to build out new data centers. This, in turn, is significantly increasing our ROI by providing a path forward for internationalization.
