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
OpenShift is well suited - when an application needs to be deployed to multiple environments (public clouds, private data centers, hybrid environments, at the edge, or on factory floor environments), where the application needs to be running consistently, safely, securely, and in a performance manner. OpenShift shines when the application deployments need to be quick, be operated, and maintain speed and consistency (DevSecOps). OpenShift also performs very well in building cloud-native microservices architectures or modernizing legacy applications that require integrations. OpenShift may not work well when the applications are unsuitable for containerization or the skills are misaligned with cloud-native and microservices approaches.

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

  • It integrates well with popular cloud providers (CSPs) like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, adding flexibility and choice for cloud deployments. OpenShift provides centralized ingress control for managing how external traffic reaches applications running across multiple clusters and simplifies security management.
  • OpenShift's S2I capability builds container images directly from source code and eliminates the need for manual configuration to provide consistency across deployments. Developers can push code changes and deploy updates to production environments to reduce manual work and accelerate release cycles.
  • We take advantage of OpenShift's hybrid cloud capabilities. We run ML workloads on both on-prem infrastructure and public cloud platforms, depending on resource needs and cost considerations.

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.

  • I find that, specifically, Secret Management is rather tricky, given the way the interface is designed.
  • I wish there were more documentation/built-in modules around the overall usage/use cases of Red Hat. If I were to start from the beginning, I would most likely spend a lot of time trying to learn how to use Red Hat effectively.
  • The monitoring functionality could be improved (timing of how it's displayed and details of what is actually happening). I find myself digging after the monitor triggers an alert vs seeing what the issue is at a glance.

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

OpenShift has a solid architecture based on conservative choice, so it works correctly, and its reliability is elevated. The performance of the application is good because workloads could scale like they could do in every other Kubernetes distro, well installed if it runs on sufficient hardware. In case of any issue Red Hat support could be reached to help the customer.

Their customer support team is good and quick to respond. On a couple of occassions, they have helped us in solving some issues which we were finding a tad difficult to comprehend. On a rare occasion, the response was a bit slow but maybe it was because of the festival season. Overall a good experience on this front.

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.

Since it is Linux based all the servers are maintained upto date and the operating procedure is an added advantage fixing security issues and patches.and LinkedIn with all the web servers it may be related to Java and all other related to servers mainly linking with the web integrations and management.

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.

  • It has helped us reduce headcount by 20% and combine various infra, support teams into SRE roles.
  • Faster time to market helped us reduce weekend work for developers by 50%.
  • Developers could deliver business goals as they didn't have to focus constantly on infra challenges.
