    IBM Cloud Managed Istio

    Clearly, the [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] tool is very useful when you have multiple services and each service is connecting with other services through APIs in different networks. To manage this type of complex network, [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] is very useful. It comes with a license that can increase the billing of your project so make sure if your application network mesh, monitoring cannot be managed on your own then you can use it.If your application is not very complex then you have many tools available like Grafana, Prometheus, Sumo Logic, which you can integrate individually with your cluster and implement. In this type of scenario, it is better to not use [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] and it will serve your purpose as well.

    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.

    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.
