Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

Yes. We're trying to deploy cloud services on IBM Cloud Kubernetes. It's intended to improve productivity of my staff. However, according to my employees, the descriptions are rather difficult to understand. Sometimes they get confused about specific functions. They know how to run it, if they can find how to initialize the configurations.
  • The network is rather reliable, which greatly satisfies our customer.
  • High performance equals time saved
  • Affordable. We believe it's an acceptable price.
  • Complicated description - it's not easy to initialize the settings.
  • Limited privileges - Kubernetes offer limited functions. It seems root authorization is not provided.
  • Port forwarding can't be set after deploying the docker. Maybe we just haven't found how to change it.
  • Efficiency improved
  • Expense saved
  • High demand on IT administrator.
No. Our IT administrator believes traditional management methods are easier to master. It's not necessary to try out complex tools.
Actually we indeed hope to try them. But it's not easy to understand the difference between these services. We can't tell what it's used for only with their names. It's not similar to the tools we've used before in GCP or AWS.
Affordable price, better network connection.
  • IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service
Better communication and cooperation.
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is well suited for deploying online computing services. We are satisfied with the network and CPU performance. It greatly saves our time. We used to use GCP and AWS, which neither provided reliable service.
