Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We are using it for proof of concept for microservices using Kubernetes and Docker engine.
  • Simple.
  • Scalable.
  • Reliable.
  • Not available in all regions.
  • Setting up cluster takes time.
  • Quick to market.
  • Rapid innovation.
  • Auto scalable.
It's always good to have GUI for quick learning but when it comes to management, CLI always takes precedence. It is good that IBM Kubernetes offers both options.
Yes, the catalogue of services offered are ranging across all fields and it's always fascinating to use them.
IBM works well with handling large scale legacy applications. In view of the same, I trust IBM innovation and knowledge around handling enterprise applications well.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)
IBM Cloud Kubernetes is well suited for e-commerce fields where innovation takes place in rapid scale.

IBM Cloud Support and Implementation

  • You can add features easily, growing as you need.
  • Options for dedicated servers or VMs gives us a lot of flexibility from a provisioning standpoint.
  • Quick deployment.
  • Powerful tool!
Yes the implementation is smooth and expected to deploy within the targetted timeframe.
The proof of concept is quick and easy and hence decided to give 10
Basic (free) - I am using this for my personal learning and testing purpose before inducting to my client. Hence, i have chosen the basic tier.
We are using it for proof of concept for microservices using Kubernetes and Docker engine. The support that i am looking for setting up the cluster is really good for the need.
