Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

Within our Smart City area, many of our customers ask us to develop software as it must be installed in their environments. Generally, they ask us to make an image with Kubernetes as a container. It is used in the IT area of our company and solves the problem of software exchange without relying on operating system configurations.
  • Multi-platform
  • Removes dependencies
  • Simple use for IT staff
  • It is not open source
  • High price
  • There are other standards like Docker or VMWare
  • Using virtualization is infinitely more comfortable
  • It has fewer problems and dependencies
  • Much faster deployment
Setting up a software tool with a container or microservice manager such as Kubernetes is much faster deployment. Even non-IT personnel can do it thanks to its simple GUI. It can be integrated with a lot of third-party tools, different operating systems, databases, etc. natively.
We have used some application of IoT or analytics, but generally we develop our own services. In any case, it is a great advantage that it has so many services by default for reuse.
In our case, one of the main reasons for using Kubernetes has been that our main customers require it, so we consider it a great standard.
Among the most important companies we work with, they use Kubernetes, they have large IT departments and choose this tool, so it is reliable with great performance. In scalable projects, it is a great platform. It removes OS dependencies.
