If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft Azure Container Service, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Before implementing this solution you have to consider is the internet connectivity to the Azure environment. For some countries that have sanctions, moving data on the cloud environment might not be allowed due to local regulation. In general, Azure Container Service and competitors, such as Google or Amazon, are more than beneficial in comparison with local on-premise environments. I am working in a few companies as a consultant. I advise them on whether to move to the Azure environment cloud or on-premise and ultimately they choose the option based on my advice. One of the companies migrated on-premise workloads to Azure and uses container services. However, in another company, we do not need to go to the cloud due to some local regulation and therefore we have to establish an on-premise environment. I rate Microsoft Azure Container Service a nine out of ten.
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.
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.
This is a very good solution and I would recommend it to others. I would rate this solution nine out of ten.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
