Product Details

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.

  • Simplicity of use.
  • Containerization.
  • Workload management.
  • It is missing the ability to use a custom domain.
  • It does not have a log built into the service.
  • Changing configuration (increasing vCPU, Ram, instances, etc...) requires the app to be redeployed.

  • More scalable than other platform.
  • Very predictable in how it behaves[.]
  • No need to define size deploy, or scale container clusters yourself[.]
  • It is limited to 100 apps per project[.]
  • 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.

  • Server-less platform that is automatically managed
  • Pay per use - scale to zero results in an extremely cheap total cost of ownership.
  • There is no need for you to set the size, deploy, or scale container clusters yourself.
  • Auto scaling is always helpful and easy to use.
  • For Bigger projects, the Number of jobs and apps can be increased along with maximum memory consumption.
  • The Documentation can be more extensive for freshers and get more engagements from the newcomers.
  • Moving around the security changes can be tricky and hard to change.
