Secure, good integration capability, and you don't have to maintain any infrastructure

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and we help our clients to implement services. In this role, I make use of this product. It is generally used for container services to install images, such as Docker files. This includes storing images in a repository.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that you don't have to maintain the infrastructure."
  • "In the future, I would like to see it generalized and have the ability to better integrate with open-source tools."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is that it is a good option to use because it is more secure. You can secure your images and your code, which are stored on that cloud. You have dedicated access and you can integrate it with Azure Active directory. It is also a PaaS offering, which means that you don't need to manage your repositories. You only need to manage your data within them. Finally, it is cost-effective in terms of storing data. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Fast to deploy and has a good security level

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is for training purposes, and for reading about what our colleagues do globally. So we basically use it for our customer projects.

Pros and Cons

  • "Microsoft Azure Container Service has a good level of stability."
  • "I wasn't very impressed with the documentation."

What other advice do I have?

Of course, I can recommend this program to others, but they must first do an overall study and analyze the program to verify that it is business-driven, not technology-driven. In the next version, I would like to see better security because it is rather limited in this version. Updating the security would be great, as well as more integration of capabilities. On a scale from one to 10, I will rate this program an eight. This is simply because I only use it in a lab environment - I don't have any other experience of the program.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good solution and I would recommend it to others. I would rate this solution nine out of ten.
