Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We mostly use [it] for our applications and it seamlessly performs well and executes the tasks for scaling with [fewer] efforts.
  • Scaling and flexibility
  • Automating the environment
  • Monitoring health
  • Security
  • UI
  • Pricing is bit expensive
  • Less clouds to execute
  • Not much effective on windows
  • Expensive compared to other vendors
  • Less compatibility- not all software are suitable
  • UI is big challenge [in our experience]
We have mostly [used] CLI because of the confusing GUI. We have done integrations with cluster management.
It's very fast, easy to navigate, and has more features and compatibility while using the GUI. Pricing is less compared to IBM.
  • IBM Cloud Virtual Servers
We are using only [a] few services and implementing stage by stage due to availability issues that should be sorted out and UI needs to [be improved].
Only [a] few flaws which I have mentioned earlier [that] needs improvement.
Training was good and effective. We have also used the hands-on and practiced.

Do you think IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service's feature set?


Did IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service again?


Only if the improvement is done.
For application testing and scaling it's very good and effective. We need to check multiple times the documentation. Availability of regions is very [few]. It's not supported for all regions, [we face] issues when we have customers in the regions [that are] not supported. We had to choose other cloud vendors who are providing better service. We need to get habituated [to] UI if we are using [it] for [the] first time. It will take [a] lot of time to toggle many tabs and check which delays the work.
