    D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere)

    Mesosphere is well suited for orchestrating workloads. It supports Docker as a container as well as support others. It is highly suitable for running resilient and auto recovering big data/application containers. Mesosphere has proven time and again to be production ready at a massive scale. It supports native single button/API call scale up and scale down and supports various deployment patterns like Blue-Green and others.

    Red Hat

    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

    D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere)

    • Deploying mesosphere and friends (e.g. marathon)
    • Deploying applications (e.g. Cassandra, Jenkins, Spark) on to mesosphere
    • Providing value add components such as velocity, and marathon-lb

    Red Hat

    • 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

    D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere)

    • Setting up is a bit of a hassle, especially ZooKeeper state management and mesos and marathon quorum.
    • Occasionally, I observed some failures when deploying something onto Marathon. Logging or detailed error reporting can help.
    • Stale containers and inconsistent states resultant of the cluster failure are hard to solve and need a complete system restart to get it back to normal state.

    • 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

      D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere)

      I happen to like mesosphere because it integrates well with a Jenkins based workflow, Deis is a little more Heroku like and it's not clear how to fit that model into a continuous-integration process. Kubernetes has also been criticized for being complicated.

      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

      D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere)

      • I see mesosphere as having a positive impact overall on the industry trending Docker and containers in general.
      • Seeing how mesosphere helps and simplifies things for the developer and ops, it is definitely a game changer.
      • Native support of on demand scaling up and down as per the need is one of the best features.

      • 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.
