"Openshift makes Container Management with Kubernetes Simple"

What do you like best?

Ease of uploading is definitely a huge plus. By creating an Openshift cluster on one VM you can locally create images and immediately have them accessible and scalable in a matching web-based UI.

What do you dislike?

Openshift clusters don't have clear logs upon failure and require going deep into the structure of your docker files without much clarity. Some better automated logging on the web interface would go a long way to improving the software as a whole.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that anyone planning to use Openshift acquaint themselves with the Docker and Kubernetes documentation and be sure that they have experience creating Docker images of course. I think it is a great secure combination of these two open-source softwares from Red-Hat. Additionality I think the UI adds value in the right ways though it could have more information and data for administrators and users to understand errors. Overall, Openshift is a successful software stack for companies that require certified software and want to move to containerization. It is easy to use with repositories and it's secrets and volumes are easy to adapt to and get to know how to use. With limited knowledge of the documentation you can get several containers up and running and scaling within 20 to 30 minutes. Internal documentation is of course key for getting to know the software better in it's use at your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Implementing secure containerization of micro-services for hundreds of thousands of VMs. These services must be scalable in order to meet user need fluctuation.

"Kubernetes for Enterprises!"

What do you like best?

Strong compliance with the base Kubernetes APIs which allowed us to get our own K8s-oriented Integration Platform (https://www.adroitlogic.com/products/ips/) working on OpenShift as well, with less hassle

Hassle-free, wizard-driven installation

Strong by-default security and permission model

What do you dislike?

Lack of documentation in certain aspects such as the relaxing of certain security enforcements

Necessity of a Red Hat Customer Portal account for installation

Unavailability of a reusable, offline installer

Reconfiguration (e.g. after changing the hostname of a node) seemed to be overly complicated

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review your requirements and see if OpenShift Online (as-a-service) version suits you better; it might be less hassle to get started.

Also consider OpenShift Origin or bare Kubernetes if you don't think you would be needing extensive support.

Before purchase, use Red Hat's no-cost Developer Subscription to evaluate the product and see if it meets your expectations. (it most certainly would!)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used as one of the key orchestration platforms supported by our own Integration Platform (https://developer.adroitlogic.com/ips/docs/17.07/overview/)

OpenShift subscription provides our clients with orchestration platform-level support so we can focus solely on providing support for our own integration platform

"Real flexibility and dynamics on applications level"

What do you like best?

The Openshift is a great effort to create a span platform supporting a lot of programming languages and integrate differents parts of DevOps processes, starting from the Operations Engeeniers, Developers and including too Security Teams.

It's powerful to builds a portables images layer by layer, allowing run updates from underlayer libraries and frameworks, and separated update source code application.

What do you dislike?

The professional starging with OpenShift will need change the paradigm, the operations team wont should install a operations system by each new application, or the developers team with need learn to developers and builds application with cloud arquitecture, because, mailly OpenShift don't presists a lot the data, just essentials information outside openshift images, the images are readonly and currently a lot application need write data/configurations and so on, on disk to works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deploy a simple Pilot and explore the technologies, Openshift Container Platform (OCP) have a simples enviroments to install very fast and learn the tecnologies on first hand. OCP is a beatyful product, the important is move step by step, the kept each one benefits.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business agility is supported with Openshift, the cause, the time to market, from Business users are creating the ideas and needs, to the final product is depliyed to production enviromment is more short, because, the project infraestructure provisionining can be using self-service mode, and using techniques Continous Deployment/Continous Integration the bugs and issues in developers stages are fixing fastly and autamated testing sets allow run many test on short time, after the deployment on each enviroment a span of landscape just transport the readonly image with freeze application versions and just run set of specified configuration for each enviromment.

The elastic scalation is a big pain of business and OpenShift allow scalate using very specific services or microservices, then you can scalate the minimal unit with bottleneck, preserving resources and giving more performance to the application features with issues.

"Scalable and Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

Openshift has an intuitive easy-to-use web interface. It is free (for low use) and easy to deploy. It integrates with Git and a wide variety of tools, frameworks, and languages.

What do you dislike?

Lack of storage accessibility for auto scaled gears. There needs to be more GUI based management. Reconfiguration after changing node host names was a bit arduous.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it. For a small quantity, it's free. It's very easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Container storage with support for dynamic storage provisioning. OpenShift provided a platform to allow for scaling using specific services and enhanced the performance of the application features.

Scalability with historically monolithic databases and breaking it down into microservices.
