    At one instance, there was a fire in our data center and the backup power had some issues because of which the whole DC went down. I believe with AKS and the replication it's easier to handle such a situation. Also, the scenario would have been pretty transparent to the end-users.

    Red Hat OpenShift

    Red Hat OpenShift is one of the best containerization and orchestration tools available today. It has wide support with all the popular programming languages and different development frameworks. It makes management and deployments very simple and easy for the engineers and saves a lot of time.

    Pros

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

    • Highly repeatable process
    • Minimizes the amount of software to install
    • Easily scale resources to meet demand
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Red Hat OpenShift

    • The same as many similar K8 vendor solutions, OpenShift provides a managed Kubernetes environment with advanced facilitative components built-in.
    • It provides the life cycle management/monitoring toolset to help users better visualize and understand both the application and infrastructure environment.
    • Provides the scaling and recovering mechanism to ensure the high resilience of the application.
    • CI/CD pipeline integration following the DevOps concept.

    Cons

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

    • Need to update cluster manually
    • Policies cannot be updated for existing components
    • if any change in policy every has to create cluster

    Red Hat OpenShift

    • The shift from v2 to v3 was a huge transition, and Red Hat [OpenShift] really failed at making this step easy for users - their documentation at the time was fairly lacking
    • When things go wrong it can be hard to diagnose

    Leverage OpenShift Online constantly at both the free and paid tiers. While AWS is convenient, it often brings more administration than I want to deal with for a quick application (i.e. Drupal or Wordpress blog). OpenShift also simplifies the DNS registration and ability to share application environments with team members

    As I said before, the obserability is one of the weakest point of OpenShift and that has a lot to do with usability. The Kibana console is not fully integrated with OpenShift console and you have to switch from tab to tab to use it. Same with Prometheus, Jaeger and Grafan, it's a "simple" integration but if you want to do complex queries or dashboards you have to go to the specific console

    First of all OpenShift Help Portal is a great place to get assistance in case of any OpenShift platform related technical questions. When it comes to paid support subscription friendly support agents can find the right answer for you in a matter of minutes which is super efficient way of solving any critical issues.

    Alternatives Considered

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

    The ability to create new instances (i.e. elastic provisioning) is probably the fastest with Azure Kubernetes Service compared to the alternatives that I have looked at. From a pricing perspective, Microsoft always seems to find a way to be more competitive in this area, and literally every other field they play in.

    Red Hat OpenShift

    The other platforms are cloud based, and less relevant when you have to choose an on prem scenario.Red Hat OpenShift encapsulates Kubernetes and provides more, so that you have an all-in-one platform instead of dealing with various separate services.[Red Hat] OpenShift is cloud ready, that is very useful for the day when you'll be ready to switch to the cloud.

    It's easy to understand what are being billed and what's included in each type of subscription. Same with the support (Std or Premium) you know exactly what to expect when you need to use it. The "core" unit approach on the subscription made really simple to scale and carry the workloads from one site to another.

    Return on Investment

    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

    • Positive impact in moving applications to cloud from the in-hose data center to save cost
    • Sometimes got affected with some bugs on the AKS infrastructure but hasn't caused a big kios as our production footprint in AKS is not yet high

    Red Hat OpenShift

    • Reduce [the] friction of monitoring environments. This leads to [a] quicker troubleshooting process.
    • Completely remove the need to authenticate each and every time you want to check on a specific environment.
    • Faster deployment workflow increases [the] efficiency of developers when testing in lower environment containers.
