    Dokku

    If you have your own in-house servers or have a cloud server with the freedom to configure any PaaS that you want, then Dokku is for you. So far, I have never run into a scenario where Dokku was not able to fit my needs, after deploying many different types of applications with varying frameworks, languages, and connected services. If you already have a PaaS available, however, Dokku may not be for you.

    Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

    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

    Dokku

    • Dockerfile deployments are an incredibly simple and straightforward way to spin up applications.
    • The docker-options plugin allows endless direct configuration of options passed to different docker lifecycle stages.

    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

    Dokku

    • Dokku might overreach on its assumptions about how you want to host your app, using its own VHOSTS plugin by default. This may be a pro or a con depending on what you want.
    • Proxy port configuration can be somewhat difficult, with Dokku resetting any pre-deployment configuration to "smart" defaults on the first deployment.

    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

    Based on 2 answers
    Dokku is incredibly well documented and also takes advantage of the documentation and community of Heroku, being essentially the same thing, but in the case that you encounter an actual bug or issue, it can take time for a fix to make it into a new version. Since you manage Dokku yourself, there is no support team to call for help.

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

    Dokku

    Dokku is essentially the same thing as Heroku, except maintained by you on the platform of your choice. If you have any experience using Heroku, then you will feel right at home using Dokku. Dokku is an entirely free to use PaaS, requiring only that you have a platform to deploy it on, making it far more versatile than Heroku in my opinion.

    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.

    • Deploying a new app is incredibly quick and easy.
