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. It supports various languages, databases and frameworks such as Ruby, Jenkins, MongoDB, Node.js and more. Additionally, it lets businesses use pre-built c...

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.

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.

It's fancy

OpenShift is great - the UI is awesome it works like a charm.

Pros

It's fancy, it's modern, it supports many languages it has automatic scaling, compatible with Kubernetes and easily migrates to other OS

Cons

Nothing really, I am curious why people prefer Kubernetes rather than Openshift. I found Openshift easier to work with.

Great business solution for cloud deployments

Happy to use such an abstractive layer on top of Kubernetes and use cloud deployment strategies with less hassle.

Pros

It is great to have Kubernetes functionality with a professional support and frequent updates. Multitenancy at best.

Cons

It sometimes can be very difficult to debug and manage. Deployment changes can be tricky that you spent hours to resolve.
