Containers as a service

  • October 10, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This platform permits to have containers-as-a-service in an easily and really inexpensive way. The application permits to pay per use and to avoid unnecessary charges on the account
What do you dislike?
The platform is quite difficult to be used by non-tecnical people, but the support is really effective and effcient.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Distribution in a large scale of software containerized in docker images.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try to use services that are not self-provided, such as virtual servers and others. With those services you can save money.

Cloud Kubernetes using the same AWS tools you know and love

  • August 26, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I really enjoy the level of integration that Amazon has done to make EKS such a great tool to the lineup of services already offered. The network connections make every pod feel like their own micro ec2 instance, and can be managed as such. There are even tasks in the works to allow specific IAM roles assigned to each service/pod, which will narrow the level of attack to a minuscule level. Each pod then can only access what is needed, and the cluster as a whole becomes much safer.
What do you dislike?
On the flip side of full integration with AWS, it does make trying to pivot between Kubnertes designs that much more challenging. It does make you almost need to design around AWS services, so as much as EKS is considered a certified kubernetes, some of the choices that are the easiest do lock you in to AWS only.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are using EKS to migrate from a typical monolithic application to a containerized, scalable application deployed solely on Kubernetes.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are looking for a way to deploy Kubernetes onto AWS, you should look into EKS. It offers all that Kubernetes does, and also expands on it by fully integrating with AWS services.

What do you like best?
AWS EKS is a very powerful solution that will enable your business to scale while also saving costs compared to using whole VMs in EC2
What do you dislike?
The configuration learning curve can be a bit steep for some, but the benefits are worth it
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Elasticity of computing resources for scaling with demand, and cost savings compared to individual VMs

Easy once I know what to do

  • September 25, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
How easily I can switch between things and multitask between applications
What do you dislike?
takes a bit of an adjustment to learn the ropes of the whole process and overall general concept
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It allows me to build all types of contained applications to orchestrate many different jobs. This allows me to multitask and go from application to application running them on different programs.

  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It was very intuitive to use and the documentation for onboarding helps a lot when you are starting out.
What do you dislike?
Can add more documentation on errors, was hard to debug some errors. Had to rely on public sites to do it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It was used to maintain 3 clusters of Kubernetes containers. Came in handy for setting up the infra needed.

Experience in using AmazonEKS

  • August 22, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Its best thing is i need not to install and operate my own Kubernetes control plane instead it makes work easy by giving us an API endpoint from which we can directly connect to the EKS managed control panel.
What do you dislike?
Nothing, Its a service provided in the cloud by Amazon and there is absolutely no issues using all the services.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use to run microservices applications with deep integrations to AWS services. Its an open sourse so its more beneficial in work environment.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Its highly recommended for AWS cloud users to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes control plane.
