Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We use IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service in our IoT Platform. Currently it isn't being used across different parts of the organization. In our IoT platform, we use IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service to orchestrate about 200 micro services that are deployed on IBM Containers. Because of Kubernetes we no longer need to manage scaling and it's super easy to deploy the application.
  • Help to orchestrate the containers on with we have deployed our micro services
  • Auto scaling
  • It makes it super easy to deploy applications
  • Much better integration with the log analysis
  • Make it easy to retrieve the logs and search through them
  • Cost saving in terms of manpower
  • Faster time to market. It only take about 3 mins to deploy my applications
  • Auto scalability
I haven't evaluated any other Kubernetes Service. We did use IBM Containers before and that service was giving us lot of trouble.
IBM API Connect, DB2, IBM Cloudant, IBM Cloud Databases (formerly Compose)
IBM Kubernetes Service is good for the applications that are born on the cloud i.e., the applications that are cloud native. There's quite a bit of time investment required to containerize the legacy applications and only then they they can be orchestrated using IBM Kubernetes Service. Currently the cost is prohibitive.
