Starting a new era in software architecture
Easy to use, full of useful feature. It make easy and valuable migration to innovative achitecture based on containerized approach. You can use a community edition (Openshift Origin) or chose the RED HAT edition. Based on Kubernetes. Fully integrated with many other useful tool for monitoring and manager the full software cycle, until the deploy.
Documentation is still poor. Not so fast in receive support from community. Security aspect need to be better debeate.
OpenShift Is A Good PaaS Platform
One of the best PaaS platforms that I've used. I've sent an Java application there and I had a best experience. It works with Java, Ruby and more. Eclipse extension works very well with OpenShift. But the free plan have some limitations. And the OpenShift is very good if you're learning about Java containers and how it works.
Free plan is not too good and it has some limitations.
OpenShift is great - the UI is awesome it works like a charm.
It's fancy, it's modern, it supports many languages it has automatic scaling, compatible with Kubernetes and easily migrates to other OS
Nothing really, I am curious why people prefer Kubernetes rather than Openshift. I found Openshift easier to work with.
Deployment is becoming easier
Managing kubernetes has been always hard for tech teams. But Openshift does it perfect and you only deploy your containers without headache. Also great UI makes big difference.
Some features that Kubernetes has is not accessible by UI and you also need to have knowledge of Openshif CLI tools. Sometimes you cannot find the answer of a question by looking only on documentations.
OpenShift - Best platform for developers
I have been using OpenShift for more than 2 years now. I have seen lot of improvements in Openshift and it's getting better and better.
The most important thing is that it provides a lifetime free account which can be used as a hands on over OpenShift.
Most important, you can attach your own domain to your application, even on free account.
Openshift works using gears and cartridges. It has now lots of cartridges available and you can also create new custom cartridge.
1. Free lifetime account with 3 small gears.
2. You can add multiple cartridges in a single gear.
3. attach your own domain to your application, even on free account.
4. Support deploy on git push
1. You can sudo login to your gear, but you can always contact customer care they will handle such situation.
OpenShif opened Kubernetes to the masses
Openshift made it possible for us to setup a complete docker orchestration solution in an effortless way, including an amazing CI/CD pipeline which basically automates everything.
* Very simple to setup and configure
* Friendly user interface
* Great dashboards
* Broad set of integrations
* Large collection of guides and tutorials
* Monitoring could be improved
* Troubleshooting can be tricky, as it's not always easy to find out exactly what's going wrong
Great to automate the provisioning and the management for your containers
it's very effective when be used with openstack for managing our infrastructure, and it provides great services like monitoring containers, and databases
It's not easy to deal with, and for some issues the vendor takes long time to get it resolved, so it will be great if the user interface enhanced with more help options.
