About OpenShift

OpenShift by Red Hat is a Kubernetes container platform designed to help businesses manage application development and deployment processes. IT operators can gain insights into the cluster's health, inventory, capacity and other metrics on a centralized dashboard. Using OpenShift, architects and developers can manage code pipelines and control clusters, roles and services for multiple teams. It offers continuous integration (CI), release management and machine learning or artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to streamline the application development lifecycle, from building to deploying.

Openshift: Best tool and software to manage the containers.

We are very happy with the Openshift and features that they offer to the container application deployment and security.

Pros

It's very easy to manage the container applications and issues related to them like container image scanning and the securities related to them before the production deployment.

Cons

Not much resource is available in the market who are expert in the container application security in market.

Reasons for choosing OpenShift

Openshift is very powerful and effective product from Red Hat. Red Hat created the c groups and namespace, they are expert in the containerised application software and they offered an incredible support when it comes to OpenShift and container security.

Reasons for switching to OpenShift

Apache Mesos was not very powerful in managing the up-growing of number of containers in the organisation.

Perfect Container Orchestrator

It solved our use case of transitioning from monolith to microservices.

Pros

If you have microservices use case and have following questions like How to scale my services? How to monitor my services? How manage deployment? How to make services resilient to failures? Answer to all the above questions is Openshift. As it eases the pain of development and there is solution available to a known services deployment issue already. Integration of our existing services was smoothly done.

Cons

We didn't face any major issue while implementing or changing our deployment strategy for microservices. However as a developer I think there are many parts that one needs to understand to get going. But I don't think that as an issue. All tools have some learning curve and Openshift is no different.

Reasons for choosing OpenShift

It is backed by Redhat. We already have Redhat Products everywhere in our organization so it was a natural choice. Not just that even comparing with similar tools it provides more and same features.

Reasons for switching to OpenShift

It takes quite a bit of effort to setup spring cloud and we wanted to come out of that zone. Openshift by default provides all the features and more we were using with Spring cloud.

Openshift - had to leave for Linode due to the forced and abrupt move from Openshift v2 to v3

It was an excellent product, Red Hat's management and treatment of users is the problem.

Pros

Openshift v2 was an excellent product that I couldn't fault at all, in fact I really really liked it. The problem came when Red Hat wanted everyone to move from v2 to v3 and gave very short notice and a very short timeline. Version 3 was completely different, based on containers.

Cons

As stated above, the real problem with Openshift is the way Red Hat forced everyone to move from v2 to v3 in a ridiculously short time. Documentation for migration was useless, I tried to migrate using it - it all failed. I could not trust Red Hat again after that experience, so I moved to Linode and have never looked back.

Starting a new era in software architecture

Pros

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.

Cons

Documentation is still poor. Not so fast in receive support from community. Security aspect need to be better debeate.

openshift through the eyes of a machine learning engineer

In general, I have not used kubernetes through the user interface and it can be said that it provides a lot of ease of use. But the bugs that I had experienced from time to time were quite annoying and it was quite bad that there was no solution.

Pros

I've used gcp, eks and aks before. When I compared them by looking at them, it was very useful that I could load and edit yamls on a user interface of its own.

Cons

Since it uses old versions of kubernetes, you may encounter interesting bugs.
