We performed a comparison between Komodor and Rancher Labs based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Container Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most valuable aspect is the speed with which I can narrow down what's going on. Usually, I look at the overview of events and then the timeline of an event and the status of the logs to quickly check what's happening or what has happened."
"The more time we use Komodor the more we save. Currently, we have seen around a ten percent return on investment."
"The event timeline has been super helpful, enabling us to overlay node events in the same timeline as deployment events... That helps an engineer very quickly troubleshoot without having to do too much digging."
"The service overview is definitely the most valuable feature. With it, I can see all the services and see if they're healthy or not without having to go specifically into each workflow individually. It has been immensely helpful for us whenever we've had network issues or other such issues. We've been able to use Komodor and see at a glance where there might be potential issues."
"Komodor's multi-cluster centralized event timeline is the most valuable feature."
"The product is simple to use for a beginner."
"The most valuable feature of Rancher Labs is its user interface, which makes it easier to work with containers and deployment."
"The initial setup is simple and straightforward."
"A great UI with very good integrations."
"Rancher Labs is a very user-friendly tool."
"This solution is not vendor-locked, which means that we we are able to use it across all of our resources; this feature is of great value to us."
"The most valuable feature is its comprehensive support, easy resource scaling, compatibility with various OEMs, and seamless service integration."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is that it is an open-source solution that is easy to deploy."
"Komodor's visibility could be improved."
"I like the alerts that Komodor provides, but I think the alert interface could be improved."
"I would like to see improvements in how the product is installed. We've already communicated these things directly to Komodor. One feature we would like to see is for Komodor to be highly available on the clusters. Currently, it's only able to run in one instance within the cluster."
"One thing we don't have visibility into, which I would love to have, is metrics, such as user logins and usage. It's really hard to know what people are doing when I don't have any metrics on that directly."
"I hope that the cost analytics and resource usage allocation areas will see further development. For example, where we can now see if the pods are over- or under-provisioned, I wouldn't mind higher-level development."
"We have found that the auto-secure feature of this solution doesn't always work, and could be improved to be more reliable, particularly when working with business critical applications."
"The biggest room for improvement in Rancher Labs would be to have a proper upgrading plan."
"Could be more intuitive."
"I can't migrate to the newer version."
"There needs to be an improvement in observability and microservice monitoring tools in Rancher Labs."
"They should improve application visibility along with code visibility."
"One area for improvement in Rancher Labs is the development aspect."
"We'd like their monitoring tool to be integrated by default."
