How has it helped my organization?

The improvement is mainly connected to the speed of change implementation. In the case of the automatic convenor, we spent less time due to the automation of the process… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are planning to use external support, and hire a commercial partner for it. Usually, this is about twenty percent of the solution.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use an integrated solution prior to this. Rather, it was done in a more traditional way. This included virtual machine creation, installation of additional… more»

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

Kubernetes Engines is easy to deploy and manage.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

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… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

As I work with different customers, it was a customer decision. I have no choice. I used Amazon Container Services, ACS, before. It was not bad, but I like Kubernetes better.

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… more»

What is most valuable?

The CLI commands are good.

What needs improvement?

The network configuration has to be simplified. I would like to see a more user-friendly interface. Currently, it is a little complex, and the technical guides are not easy to follow. Compared to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an open source solution, so there is no pricing or licensing.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

This is a really good product for independent applications or microservices. The downtime is minimal, and we have even made it zero downtime for deployment. However, when they are cluster-based… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated Docker Swarm, but compared to that, Kubernetes is very good. Docker Swarm is only for small applications.
