Pros
The scalability is the best feature.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.Stability-wise, this solution is really good.Before using this solution, it was a lot of manual tasks and a lot of people participated in the process.

The most valuable feature is the endpoint protection system.The monitoring in the management console allows us to find out what is going wrong, and it gets reports even before the user reports it.

Cons
It needs to support load balancing.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.The network configuration has to be simplified.I think that security is an important point, and there should be additional features for the evaluation of data in containers that will create a more secure environment for usage in multi-parent models.
