Easy to use, extremely stable and easily scalable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for deploying containers and scheduling the jobs to the Kubernetes for our server-side deployment.

Pros and Cons

  • The ease of use if the solution is a very valuable aspect for us.
  • It would be very interesting if they could introduce a template engine to set dynamic values in the deployment time. It would be ideal if it could be native in Kubernetes as it would be much easier.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise new users to take the managed solution. Don't deploy it by yourself. Just take a managed service. It's really worth it. I advise this due to the fact that it's a lot of time and effort. It's not that expensive in terms of overhead. It may be $100 or $200 or something like that monthly. When you pay $3,000, let's say, the $100 doesn't really matter. However, the work that your DevOps will have will be costly. They will initially invest to maintain your unmanaged deployment. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this solution a ten.

Easy to control and manage containers at all levels and is easy to create CD

What is our primary use case?

Kubernetes Engine is a platform that spins off applications so they can be run at scale at a high level. We are currently migrating from on-premises to the cloud version.

Pros and Cons

  • The initial setup was very easy because it's like a Google platform as a service. It's just one button to set it up. The deployment took only a few minutes.
  • There are some security issues, but it might just be because we are not up to speed yet as much as we should be and so we haven't found it in the documentation yet. That's why I don't want to confuse this. Still, it could be a little bit easier to understand and implement.

What other advice do I have?

Management and deployment of a lot of containers could be very easy. It saves us time. I think Kubernetes is really a fast developing and easy to use platform. I would probably rate it as nine out of ten since it does have a little bit of room for improvement.
