Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We are using the IBM K8s Service to handle user-submitted private data. K8s can be used to better distribute workloads. IBM Kubernetes Service has been chosen for processing speed and for a faster network. Deploying is more convenient than with a VM, but it does not have the stability of a traditional VM.
  • Performance is sufficient.
  • A smooth network.
  • Web interface included.
  • Kubernetes!
  • Not very stable.
  • Price.
  • Deployment speed.
Web interface, CLI, and API are easier to use, but sometimes cluster management will run into problems, such as could not create, but these are rarely used and the services in operation are not affected. The real-time price calculator is an advantage.
Reserved instance + serverless may be a better option, but VM is too heavy for us. The reason for choosing IBM Cloud Kubernetes is for the K8s and smooth network.
IBM Cloud Kubernetes is suited for K8s, but is not suitable for 'direct day or night.' For 'day or night with reserved processing,' it is suitable. Compared to Dynamic VM allocation, K8s is much easier, thanks to the stable K8s management node, although sometimes deploying clusters can be problematic. High-frequency container operations are very stable.
