We performed a comparison between Kubernetes and Linode based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Red Hat, Kubernetes, Amazon and others in Container Management.
"The implementation, and the way that they can, with a few clicks, load hundreds of machines without any trouble is very useful."
"There are features that come out of the box with Kubernetes, with respect to scaling, reliability, etc. It's the leading container management platform. There are other competing ones, but this is the leading one. It has multiple instances of the application running. If one of them goes down, the other one automatically spins up."
"Provides auto rollback and scale-up and scale-down functionalities."
"Scalability is the most valuable feature."
"The cluster is very stable with outward scalability and good performance."
"The most valuable feature is the Zero Touch Operations, which involves a new way of performing operations and support. We do not have to do maintenance, the operations are very simple."
"Once you get it configured properly, it's a stable solution."
"There's a lot of community support if you need to get help."
"The simplicity by which you can handle your inventory is one of the things I like the most."
"They have a very nice web interface to allow you to manage and reorganize your server."
"Linode has many other cloud servers across the globe."
"I very much like the support that you get, and I think that it's excellent."
"The solution integrates easily."
"Service availability is the most valuable feature. It gives every user 100 percent uptime."
"The fact that you can do any Linux distribution is great. You can try out any Linux distribution, even some of the more obscure ones, and they are always keeping them up-to-date. As soon as a new distribution comes out, it is on the platform pretty much the same day, which I find really helpful."
"The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."
"Kubernetes is a bit complex, and there's a steep learning curve. At the same time, I cannot imagine how it could be easier. You need many add-ons to it, and the commercial releases of Kubernetes should address that."
"The setup and operation of the product should be simplified."
"The dashboard, monitoring, and login need improvements."
"Overall, it's very powerful, but there are also a lot of complexities to manage."
"Kubernetes can improve pod escalation."
"Kubernetes could improve security. The security is really hard to deploy with proxies and other elements. Additionally, We have had some issues downloading repos and libraries."
"The solution lacks some flexibility."
"It would be nice if they could make it easier for developers and infrastructure staff to automate some of the pieces that they have to do manually at the moment."
"Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find."
"It would be nice if they had more data centers in Latin America."
"I would like to see more seamless integration with backup, although it's pretty easy to do."
"The suitability of this solution depends on the features that you need. If you're an Uber-sized company then you're probably not going to want to start using Linode. If you are a large-sized organization then you're going to want to start using one of the bigger providers that gives you the scalability and the feature set that you are probably going to be needing in the future."
"They recently changed the web interface and although the older one did not look as good, the new one is less responsive."
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security."
"When it comes to marketing and exposure, Linode needs improvement because I just randomly found them by looking for Linux solutions."
"I don't know how all of their services work, but my understanding is that they're not offering the entry-level machine for someone who just wants to own their own web page."
Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.
