We mostly use Kube CLI to interact with Kubernetes. IBM CLI is only used for granting access to the cluster. The GUI is nice to monitor the workload in the cluster. However, since we try to automate monitoring and alerting, we don't use the GUI that often.

The tool's integration is great but I did not use it for my trial yet. I had a quick look at Toolchain and thought that the choice of toolings is very limited and not customizable.

The CLI and API have been developed rapidly and we find it annoying to change logics in our deploying script all the time. IBM Cloud Kubernetes provides good documentation and it is relatively easy to pick up updates and new APIs as well as digging out which one is deprecated. Overall, we think it adds a little bit of hassle in cluster management due to this fact.

We have had a good time learning and modifying cluster services with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. I think it would be easier if we stuck to IBM's purely-native cluster service GUI and metaphors — in fact, I know it would be. In our case, we have a client demand to be multi-cloud, so IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service was a first stop for POC, since one of the cloud environments the client expects is IBM.

In our experience, we typically use IBM Cloud Kubernetes from CLI. It is really powerful and permits us to manage the entire cluster with simple APIs. CLI tools can be installed also on dumb terminals so that no powerful and GUI furnished nodes are required for managing the Cluster. Sometimes we use also the web GUI, really intuitive and complete, but less flexible than CLI.

The GUI provides means of overall statistics. The real management is done via the CLI. The API is not so useful for small companies, but for companies with a lot of employees it would be a good option to integrate the common tasks into a simple app via the API to reduce the maintenance time.

Cluster management is simpler than we expected. We benefited from this feature as we overcome the overhead of running multiple clusters of dockers and having network issues. Now the entire process is very much simplified.
