Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service removed the requirement to make application-specific configurations for each server and enabled engineers to iterate faster, knowing that what is shipped and runs in production is exactly what they built and tested. No more going through many steps of cloning multiple repos, pulling configurations, and installing lots of components locally. It greatly increased the infrastructure and the speed to launch new products and features into the marketplace.
- Quickly scaled our infrastructure[.]
- Streamlined application release process[.]
- The environment is now standardized to allow to quickly transition to different projects[.]
- Since it's very powerful it can be an overkill for applications that do not require a distributed architecture[.]
- It can be difficult to migrate applications to IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, and at times the entire architecture has to be refactored[.]
- Shipping more products and features faster[.]
- Instant scalability[.]
- Quickly scaled infrastructure to meet increased customer demand[.]
The agility of Kubernetes allows it to be deployed quickly with short iterations. Operability makes it work well over time, not just at [the] deployment phase and the application itself is able to expose a health check in order for the infrastructure it is running on to query its state at all times.
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is what we rely on to run our applications without having to worry about the underlying resources. It has a steep learning curve but [its] popularity makes it essential to learn because it is changing the way developers test and run application instances in the cloud[.]
- Online training
- in-person training
The frequency with which we received online training allowed us to set up IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service quickly and understood that every single configuration requires careful consideration as well as customization to the unique needs of our project[.]
Do you think IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service delivers good value for the price?
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?
Would you buy IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service again?
An effective renewal strategy requires upfront planning and sufficient time for contract negotiations and that's what we are working on to make the licensing easier to manage in [the] future[.]
IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is very powerful, yet not easy to operate but still provides the freedom to innovate and accelerate digital transformation. Combines application development with security and operations considerations to create a seamless software development lifecycle.
