Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

It is being used by the whole company. We use IBM Cloud Kubernetes for our VPN server. IBM has a lot of data centers around the globe thus it's really effective in connecting employees at different locations in Europe and USA to the company servers. As much as I know, our mail server is also located on IBM Cloud Kubernetes.
  • It's located at many locations around the globe. Mainly in US and Europe
  • Pay as you go plan for reduced costs
  • Easy to maintain
  • Not enough data centers located in Asia and South America
  • Reduced cost of servers
  • Centralized point of management for different services
The GUI provides means of overall statistics. The real management is done via the CLI. The API is not so useful for small companies, but for companies with a lot of employees it would be a good option to integrate the common tasks into a simple app via the API to reduce the maintenance time.
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is far more distributed around the world. Also it has lower costs.
Not using other products
Well suited for apps that require a high distribution and the ability to scale, since it enables to scaling and variety of data center locations.
