Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

I am currently using it for a project. It is meant to address the ease of orchestrating the deployment of containers.
  • Good documentation.
  • Ease of installation.
  • Good UI.
  • Having better instructional videos online would be nice.
  • It has led to more productive workflows.
It is easy to deploy new applications and the documentation is, for the most part, easy to read which makes the ease of using the CLI more convenient for all.
I've also worked with AWS and Google Cloud platform and I was curious about IBM Cloud's services.
A well-suited case is when we want to evaluate a new potential cloud service. It is less appropriate for situations where businesses already have one.

Using IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

2 - People who have prior experience with different cloud vendors and programmming
  • App deployment
  • monitoring
  • Scaling
  • saved money by having more automation
  • Expand into other ibm services in the cloud

IBM Cloud Operational Features

This has allowed scaling benefits as well as reducing downtime with any one worker node.
The kubernetes web Terminal made it easy to manage the clusters and deploy containerized apps to the cluster directly from the web browser.

IBM Cloud Support and Implementation

The implementation went pretty smoothly, but took some time for configuration.
Basic (free) - I just wanted to try it out
The documentation was detailed and well written.
  • Central Documentation and Learning Hub
  • IBM Cloud Docs
  • Ability to check uptime status for IBM Cloud products
  • IBM Cloud product demos and tutorial videos
Yes, I was interested in learning more about how to use the IBM Cloud Kubernetes to deploy my machine learning application and the documentation made the process much easier.

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service Support

The self-guided support was solid, and there are plenty of online videos to guide first time users, but I think one area of improvement is a faster way to transfer a large quantity of files from our local machine to the cloud for storage (Aspera).
