    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.

    OpenShift is well suited if you want to use docker and [Kubernetes] but you want to hide the complexity of these two technologies. It gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, builds process, and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure it for each application.

    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 on IBM Cloud

    • Implementing and integration platform to move infrastructure from on-premise hardware to the cloud[.]
    • Establishes a robust network and an updated infrastructure to develop intelligent and integrated services[.]
    • Makes internal development easier and faster and improves data access to developers[.]

    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.

    Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

    • Better API integration with a wider eco system
    • CLI, UI and API could be better in terms of usability
    • More security feature for east and west traffic, proxy and load balancing

    I think response time for IBM Cloud support should be improved.

    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.

    Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

    We are using IBM Cloud App ID as a simple method to get an OIDC provider for our applications, that are running within the OpenShift cluster. Also, IBM Cloud Object Storage is used within the workload to store data via an s3 compliant way. The IBM Cloud Container Registry is an easy way to store the container images, that are used within the OpenShift cluster. Especially we configured the system in such a way to stop the image delivery if the container images are vulnerable. IBMs Cloud Pak for Integration and Business Automation is providing a rich feature set, that is tackling a lot of use-cases. They are both installable in the provided cluster easily.

    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 on IBM Cloud

    • Helped us migrate on perm apps to cloud
    • Provided easy to use dev experience for devs without kube experience
    • Provided a secure rbac solution for many different teams running workloads on the same cluster
