Developers across our organization utilize IBM Cloud Code Engine for a number of use cases, including running applications, functions, and batch operations. Instead of spending time managing infrastructure and configuring hosting environments, our engineers can concentrate on writing code. IBM Cloud Code Engine provides an end-user experience for developers that is easy, adaptable, and intuitive. While the documentation is a little weak, but a person with prior knowledge can easily be adapted to the workflow very easily.
  • 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.

As mentioned in previous points, the ability to scale to zero results in an extremely cheap total cost of ownership. As well as added features like auto-scaling and serverless management are a huge plus, can help in quick deployment as well as showcasing new prototypes and solutions. The only thing that was a little buggy was the security, but an experienced engineer can surely work with that.
The auto-scaling, as well as the serverless management services sure, has allowed us to work more towards the designs solutions than to worry about deployment.
Having only some hands-on with the other services, The cloud engine is considerably simpler to operate, with a very clear interface and management. Each application can be easily configured and altered without needing to know anything about different subscription tiers or the system's inner workings. But in the case of Lambda, Depending on the situation, Code Engine will fetch your source code and generate the container image.

It would be a good solution for running serverless applications. Because infrastructure setup and maintenance expenses can be avoided, the investment will pay for itself. The time to value is short, allowing IT to respond to business demands quickly. It aided us in customizing security as well as operating a personal project using to autoscale up and down approach. Also, because there isn't much hassle, items can be pushed into production as soon as possible. Simply push a container, create an application, and you're ready to go. But, It is less suited when you have a static machine or need to keep data in some way and do not want to utilize network storage or a database.
