IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is what we rely on to run our applications without having to worry about the underlying resources. It has a steep learning curve but [its] popularity makes it essential to learn because it is changing the way developers test and run application instances in the cloud[.]

We actually haven't had any real problems in our clusters recently and the results we have gotten from adopting IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service have been beyond even our greatest expectations. The community has helped optimize the use of the system and make it relatively simpler to use.

Overall, IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is a great managed solution of Kubernetes and it works quite well within the IBM Cloud ecosystem. Kubernetes is a powerful piece of container orchestration software and this managed version removes some of the overhead of maintain such a complex system. I'd recommend the product.

Kubernetes is absolutely fantastic. The Kubernetes API is a great tool when it comes to automating a deployment pipeline. Deployments are not only more reliable, but also much faster, because we’re no longer dealing with VMs. Our builds and deployments have become more reliable because it’s easier to test and ship containers.
