Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Foundry

All the RESTful APIs and SPA applications are deployed to Cloud Foundry. We also use P2P security for the private services which is good and eliminates external security measures. CI/CD is much easier with CLI and infrastructure is of course not a big deal anymore.
  • Routing.
  • Ease of use.
  • IAM security applies to Cloud Foundry.
  • An option to assign a private IP for P2P security so that public routing can be avoided when needed.
  • Time to production is reduced significantly.
We have Replica in another data center which is all managed by the cloud platform, however we have to route ourselves.
CICD is much simpler and more efficient. Improved deployment time drastically.
Ease of use and all the capabilities we need are well built-in. Though we had to work around for p2p security and log draining which is not bad.
Well suited for micro services and web applications.
