We have been using IBM cloud code engine for fully managing our projects , It provides us a serverless platform for deployment of our application, our applications were mostly based over webapps, batch jobs and microservices . IBM cloud code engine serverless computing services helped us with a hassle- and burden-free building and deploying of kubernetes.
  • More scalable than other platform.
  • Private networking is allowed.
  • Serverless platform.
  • Easy running of container and batch jobs.
  • User interface needs to be friendly.
  • Hard to change security.
  • Limited number of projects can be deployed.
Startups or small business organization which are working over Platform as a service definitely should choose IBM Cloud Code engine as serverless platform. It also helps for small execution times and provides high resource limits for operation.

IBM Cloud Engine is being used at SiB Solutions to host our cloud services. It helps us concentrate on the task of implementing a good service. [It also] takes away most of the infrastructure management, allowing us to provide a stable and fast service while also developing it further in an efficient way. What it especially does is free us from having to learn a lot of different services for each different need we have. [This] is based on open technologies that we already know, and it can take the form we need it to for the different cases we have.
  • Very predictable in how it behaves
  • Extremely easy to use
  • Certificates automatically taken care of
  • Python API lacking
  • Some unclear errors (for example: many revisions in a project [are] not reported, and [it] just doesn't allow more revisions)
  • No possibility to automatically update an application when pushing a new version of a container
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).

We are working on one project on BISAG that is a Financial Fraud Detection System and We have to deploy this project on IBM cloud so our organization suggested some other things but we suggested implementing IBM Cloud Code Engine for writing the code and deploy the code.
  • It is a serverless platform
  • Fully managed platform
  • No need to define size deploy, or scale container clusters yourself
  • No networking skills required
  • 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
This is good when you don't need to manage a server so it is good for serverless computing

IBM cloud engine provides a completely managed non-server program. It helps in deploying containers and application based on websites, event driving functions, and micro-servers. It has helped us in managing Kubernetes workloads.
  • Doesn't take long execution time.
  • Private networking.
  • Highly scalable.
  • Automatic managed server-less platform
  • Allows autoscaling.
  • Expensive
  • Low security with TLS.
  • Documentation could be more detailed.
  • Some features are not described at all.
It helped us in customizing security and running a personal project with the autoscale up and down method.

IBM Cloud Code Engine is being used by developers across our organizations on a variety of use cases such as to run apps, functions, and batch jobs. Instead of spending time on infrastructure management and setting up of hosting environment, our developers can focus on code. For developers, IBM Cloud Code Engine gives an end-user experience - simple, flexible and intuitive.
  • Pay per usage - Ability to scale to zero allows very low total cost of ownership
  • Shallow learning curve - for developers, there is no time spent on learning complex concepts like Kubernetes
  • Serverless - scaling, patching, and other infrastructure needs are taken care of by IBM. So only business logic is supplied by us
  • Documentation - This can be more detailed and exhaustive. It might be intentional as the complexities are hidden away or abstracted to give an easy start for developers.
If an organization already subscribes to IBM Cloud, IBM Cloud Code Engine would be an excellent choice to run serverless apps. The investment will pay for itself as the infrastructure setup and maintenance costs can be avoided. The time to value is low which enables IT to meet business needs in a speedy manner.

IBM Cloud Code Engine was used for full-stack apps for solutions like end-to-end developer solutions for app development, testing and deployment, security and dev ops need. It helped us do the cloud development and deployments. This is a nice service provided by IBM for developers. It offers both Paas and Saas options for implementation.
  • Better insight details
  • Better engagement
  • Pay as u go
  • User interface can be easier.
  • Customizable security.
  • Autoscale up and down.
Used code engine for applications having Web Socket as for message exchanging. There were a number of users connected to the app so service was automatically scaled up or down based on the need of the hour for incoming requests. The application contained two side-by-side versions deployed to handle the revisions.

What is IBM Cloud Code Engine?

IBM Cloud Code Engine is a fully managed, serverless platform that unifies the deployment of containers and applications including web apps, microservices, event-driven functions, or batch jobs. This serverless compute service aims to remove the burden of building, deploying, and managing workloads in Kubernetes so users can focus on writing code and not on the infrastructure that is needed to host it.

With IBM Cloud Code Engine users can run any workload serverlessly. That includes long-running containers and batch jobs as well as bursty and short-lived functions. The platform dynamically scales containers according to load, has monitoring, logging and a service mesh “built in.” The vendor states users don't need to choose between long execution times, high resource limits, private networking and scale-to-zero but instead have it all on one fully-managed platform, without needing infrastructure skills.
