What is the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service?

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is a managed Kubernetes offering that delivers powerful management tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications, all while leveraging Cloud Services and cognitive capabilities from Watson. IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service provides native Kubernetes capabilities like intelligent scheduling, self-healing, horizontal scaling, service discovery and load balancing, automated rollouts and rollbacks, and secret and configuration management. IBM is also adding capabilities to the Kubernetes Service, including the following:

  • Simplified cluster management with HA masters and multizone clusters

  • Container security and isolation choices

  • The ability to design your own cluster

  • The option to leverage other IBM Cloud services, such as Watson for your cognitive applications

  • Completely native Kubernetes CLI and API

  • Integrated operational tools or support to bring your own tools to ensure operational consistency with other deployments
