CloudFoundry

It's well suited if:
  • The organization has large number of applications that needs to be deployed frequently.
  • The organization is tied to the DevOps mindset.
  • The organization has programs in different languages.
  • The applications does not need EJB's support that servers like web logic provide.
It's less suited if:
  • The applications needs security configuration within the same CloudFoundry instance.
  • The organization, for whatever reason does not want developers to manage the instances.

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

CloudFoundry

  • Support for Orgs and Spaces that allow for managing users and deployables within a large organization.
  • Easy deployment, deploying code is as simple as executing single line from CLI, thanks to build-packs.
  • Solid and rich CLI, that allows for various operations on the instance.
  • Isolated Virtual Machines called Droplets, that provide clean run time environment for the code. This used to be a problem with Weblogic and other application servers, where multiple applications are run on the same cluster and they share resources.
  • SSH capability for the droplet (isolated VM's are called droplets), that allows for real time viewing of the App code while the application is running.
  • Support for multiple languages, thanks to build-packs.
  • Support for horizontal scaling, scaling an instance horizontally is a breeze.
  • Support for configuring environment variable using the service bindings.
  • Supports memory and disk space limit allocation for individual applications.
  • Supports API's as well as workers (processes without endpoints)
  • Supports blue-green deployment with minimal down time

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

CloudFoundry

  • Does not support stateful containers and that would be a nice to have.
  • Supports showing logs, but does not persist the logs anywhere. This makes relying on Cloud Foundry's logs very unreliable. The logs have to be persisted using other third party tools like Elk and Kibana.
Anudeep Palanki | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

CloudFoundry

While Docker shines in providing support for volumes and stateful instances, Cloud foundry shines in providing support for deploying stateless services.Heroku shines in integrating with Git and using commits to git as hooks to trigger deployments right from the command line. But it does not provide on-premise solution that Cloud foundry provides.
Anudeep Palanki | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

CloudFoundry

  • Positive impact, since it simplifies the deployment time by a huge margin. Without cloud foundry, deploying a code needs coordination with infrastructure teams, while with cloud foundry, its a simple one line command. This reduces the deployment time from at least few hours to few minutes. Faster deployments promote faster dev cycle iterations.
  • Code maintenance such as upgrading a Node or Java version is as simple as updating the build-pack. Without cloud foundry, using web logic, the specific version only supports a specific version of Java. So updating the version involves upgrading the version of web logic that needs to involve few teams. So without cloud foundry, it takes at least few days, with cloud foundry, its a matter of few mins.
  • Overall, happier Developers and thats harder to quantify.

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.
