Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

As a systems integrator, we use IBM Cloud Kubernetes for our customers for deploying micro-services in Kubernetes as a backend for several apps. Kubernetes is easily configurable, deployable and scaleable. We can innovate and deploy new functionality in days combined with an Agile way of working. So IBM Cloud Kubernetes gives us the certainty of a managed container service and we can fully concentrate on the micro-services and the data.
  • Managed cluster
  • Easy configuration
  • Ideal for micro-services architecture.
  • Cheap compared to old VM's.
  • Offers good support.
  • Only Opex expenditures.
  • Positive impact on ROI.
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is designed to simplify cluster
management. It offers a GUI for novice users, in addition to a CLI and
API options to integrate with continuous integration tools. Our organisation got the full benefit of this, using juniors and seniors in the project.
I did not use third-party services.
IBM Kubernetes is well suited when your company is working on microservices architecture and uses Agile as a working process.

Using Kubernetes you need to know some basics about deployment and the dependencies with other functionalities.
Also, it is required to split your application into microservices to you can have the full benefit of the container platform
When well implemented you can do maintenance during operation hours, so you can work on the back-end while running the application.
