Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We had used Kubernetes service for building hyper ledger fabric applications. Kubernetes comes in handy in integration with hyper ledger for building various blockchain use cases. We use Kubernetes within our blockchain team for building products for our clients.
  • Simple
  • Easy to integrate
  • Robust
  • Efficient
  • On a lower note, it's a bit expensive.
  • We have observed positive ROI for our clients.
  • It's failsafe so there are no big negative impacts that we observed.
Cluster management is simpler than we expected. We benefited from this feature as we overcome the overhead of running multiple clusters of dockers and having network issues. Now the entire process is very much simplified.
We haven't had any projects on the Watson, rhus it's not a good idea for me to give a review on that aspect. In regard to the blockchain applications, it works like a charm.
  • Docker
With Docker we used to have issues in networking. With IBM Cloud Kubernetes, it's much simpler to manage the resources.
Its of great value when you are implementing your corporate or private block chain use cases. Its quite simple to setup, deploy and run fabric using IBM Blockchain platform.
