Openshift, Red Hat and Fedora users community, opensource community.

Culture and ecosystem with hackatons and community events (conferences, seminars,webinars).

Most recent cutting edge opensource software and technologies.

Support and extensive documentation, educational resources.

Highly extensible and scalable, Openshift apps can scale from single-page app to a large infrastructure or network, fully controlled monitored and orchestrated.

Cloud-native.

Minimal network latency for servers.

Openshift containers and cartridges and plenty of github repositories available with custom configurations for those containers / cartridges and apps.

Constantly providing new features and publishing newest tutorials.

Pricing for individual learning and experimenting and for professional projects and hosting.

Build for developers, developers and DevOps best friend.

Easily integrated in other cloud services and cloud providers.

Global availability.

What do you dislike?

I think there are not many issues I can count which i dislike.

It can be complexity to build and scale custom apps, though OpenShift is not for plain users but for developers and professionals.

Sometimes hard to build a new application with experimental features, I need to build a new cartridge for that application first and I need to keep all manifest and config requirements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly innovative and stable platform, designed for future. Openshift is a starting point and base platform for various large projects.

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

I move almost all my development environments, mostly staging, outside of production to Openshift.

I make domains with demo.* and dev.* prefix at Openshift and provide "live" development environment for my customers and clients to observe work-in-progress.

"Affordable and realiable Cloud Hosting"

What do you like best?

All the different Applications that they support and options that you can config for each one.

It is a quick and easy way to turn on an application for either a quick demo, testing or just a proof of concept with having to go thru all the red tape of getting permission from someone in it.

The interface looks really nice and is simple to navigate thru

What do you dislike?

They do not have a asp.net solution or Microsoft SQL Express.

Built-in Training for people who are not experience creating Cloud solutions.

The Ability to have more than 1 user and assign permissions to them.

Try the free version if you have any doubt, but be ware you just may like it more then you will have expected.

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

A quick way to turn up small micro sites

"Simple and Powerfull"

What do you like best?

The ability to spin up a new instance preloaded with the applications I want. The interface is simple enough for a beginner to get started, without having to read documentation on how to use it.

What do you dislike?

Not exactly dislike. But the thing I least like are the restrictions on MySQL database cartridge which shuts down after 8 hours of inactivity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try this even if you are currently using anything else.

Easy to setup your project. Really helpful for students, It also allows for using custom domains.

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

I can quickly turn on a instance and install my app to test and to show to other users. I also use to showcase demos of my personal projects. Also I have used this service to host college's event websites.

"OpenShift for Web Hosting"

What do you like best?

Open Shift provides new actively subscribed user with a starter account that comes with 1GiB of memory and storage for a single project space and open community support. Additionally, they provides a really quick and helpful response to any questions you may have within a few business days which reflects great customer service.

What do you dislike?

Just recently, Open Shift switches from basic JBoss Web Server with Apache Tomcat 8 to a more complex and secure project setup using https that requires certificate and key setup. Without any experience in TLS Termination and SSL certificates it may be difficult for someone who is new to deploying web applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend Open Shift as a consideration for deploying your own web application that is accessible to anyone with connection to the World Wide Web (WWW). However, I would suggest anyone without experience in SSL Certificates to learn the material before attempting deployment using the tomcat server option.

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

Research new technologies for hosting web applications in a tomcat server. The benefit that came with this research discovery is that this cloud platform is a great choice for new starters learning deployment of web applications in a cloud environment. Also great for small business owners interested in starting a new website!

"Whether in a public cloud or private DC, OpenShift make easy move to container and microservices"

What do you like best?

We are experimenting Openshift Origin, the upstream community project that powers OpenShift. We are also studing and monitoring the Red Hat versions.

OpenShift enable to rapidly build and deploy Docker containers and manage them on a robust, scalable platform.

The openshift origin version is good for demo and test, as well as we can count in a enterprise version provided by Red Hat.

What is more OpenShift is based on Kubernetes and Docker, that I think like "standard de facto" in managing and orchestrating container.

What do you dislike?

Openshift require a lot of resource and some constrains in hardware and software requirementes.

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

It help in propose to our customer a gradual moving from traditional architectures to innovative approach.

"Openshift review"

What do you like best?

I like that it is free, fast and never goes offline unlike other "free" webhosting sites. The speed is fast. Learning curve was easier than expected. Setting up php environment and mysql database was a piece of cake.

What do you dislike?

There was a little confusion at first on how to upload my files to the server. I learned that I had to use Putty for windows and use version controlling system. This was new to me but everything else is fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it for free if you are unsure. For single developer with small app, I think the free version is still better. There is paid version too and I am sure bigger teams will benefit from it.

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

I am using it to host mysql database for my android app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=timsina.sciq.prabin. The speed so far is great. But let's see what happens as more and more users start using the app.
