What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the horizontal staging of applications. Other important features include isolation of applications and more effective usage of infrastructure… more»

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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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?

My advice is not to implement this solution unless there is a genuine demand for it from the business side. It can be useful to start from the bottom of the infrastructure… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have been watching what is happening the market, and for some time it has been obvious that Kubernetes has the most followers and most potential. This is why we are… more»

What is most valuable?

It's like instantaneous scaling up. If you have a lot of traffic coming in, things like RAM and hard disk are easily able to scale.

What needs improvement?

It should support the latest GP use. I also think it should support load balancing.

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

Currently, it costs around $1000 per month which sorted our deployment. So once we get more clients, having a huge suffix, costs can go up.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I heard about the normal service. Some of the eCommerce stuff, size or any of the other sites, you have a lot of traffic coming to your size. It is easy to buy if you have little traffic. You'll be able to buy and resell or if you still… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody considering this solution is to understand that you need to have everything ready before implementation. You need to have a migration strategy. I would rate Google Kubernetes Engine an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Kubernetes Engines is easy to deploy and manage.

How has it helped my organization?

First of all, it's easier to control and manage the containers at all levels. It becomes easy to create CD, or continuous delivery, and it's easier to scale.

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»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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.
