OpenShift

As with any solution, it depends on how and why you want to deploy it. OpenShift is excellent for medium to large deployments, but I would caution against smaller deployments unless you're planning on ramping up to a larger deployment in short order. It just doesn't make financial sense to deploy it in a small configuration.

Proxmox VE

Versatility and flexibility is Proxmox VEs' greatest strong points. Allowing infinite design capability, you can build infrastructures of various work loads, purposes, and goals and not be restricted by how you do it, or what differences may need to exist between the various infrastructure points. Proxmox VE allows you to design how you need to every time.

Pros

OpenShift

  • Pre built cartridges, giving a huge range of software ready to go. Reduces the amount of time required to get up and running.
  • Integration with GIT was an advantage, cloning the repo and making changes was straight forward.
  • Speed, creating an environment in minutes, ready to deploy.

Proxmox VE

  • Provides an easy to use management interface
  • Works with Ceph, a distributed storage natively
  • Virtualizing different platforms

Cons

OpenShift

  • I would like to see a public cloud using OpenShift and Docker integration. I am not aware if this is already available now.
  • I would like to see a tool that can help with extracting log files from the remote server like it being available on a Samba shared folder. And other applications that want to scan for keywords in the application log can check if there have been any errors or exceptions thrown by the application.

Proxmox VE

  • Several options are available for storage. CephFS, the clustered built-in network storage, needs to be installed via the console or ssh. Other options like iSCSI do not support host migration.

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

Proxmox VE provides the most capable, yet stable virtualization platform in the market today. Licensing options are also competitive and cost-effective for support, and support is extremely fast and knowledgable of getting issues resolved as quickly and soundly as possible.

It is easy to understand. Gives our team freedom to focus on the quality of our coding and not worry too much about build and deployment which honestly can be a headache for some of us. Also, customer support is fast and responsive so we don't have to wait for weeks for issues to get fixed.

Out of every product I have used for this, Proxmox VE is the most concise, clear, and functional I have ever seen. I continue to use Proxmox VE even after occasionally comparing alternatives available because of it's usability, design concept, and great support of features. It's very unlikely I will find a product that can even compete with Proxmox VE in every angle of what Proxmox VE provides.

Proxmox VE's ha-cluster functionality is very much improved, though does have a not-very-often occurrence of failure. In a 2-node cluster of Proxmox VE, HA can fail causing an instance that is supposed to migrate between the two nodes stop and fail until manually recovered through the command-line tools provided. Other than this, the HA clustering capability of Proxmox VE has proven to be reliable in 3 or more clustered environments with much less chance of these failures to occur.

Proxmox VE's interfacing is always fast to load, both the Web interface and the command-line tool interfaces. Reporting is practically real time almost all the time, and you can see everything in mere seconds, easily able to identify if something is wrong or it everything is in tip-top shape as always desired

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

OpenShift

EC2 seems really cheap until you realize how many hours there are in a year, so it is expensive for something that runs 24/7. And scaling is a challenge (and even more expensive) to set up for.Bluehost has very reasonable prices, but it feels so cluttered whenever I login to cPanel. Thank goodness they have an SSH option also, but I remember having to send a picture ID or something and pay extra for the privilege

Proxmox VE

The Proxmox Cluster solution only requires a browser to control and manage all of your server resources. The other solutions require you to run a specific Operating System to manage them, getting awkward since the underlying technology runs on another OS. The native integration with Ceph is big move on this wonderful Storage Technology

Proxmox VE provides everything you need to quickly add new storage mediums, network and local, as well as networking interfaces, such as using Linux standard bridges and now Open-vSwitch bridges which can be even more scalable than before. Proxmox VE 4.0 dropped support for OpenVZ in favor of the more well supported and native LXC and made an upgrade path to it very simple.

Return on Investment

OpenShift

  • Cost - OpenShift is extremely inexpensive. I use a free account for Dev and QA. For production, I am planning on using a low cost paid subscription.
  • Time - You can get your application up and running in minutes so if you find that the service is not for you, you don't have much to lose.

Proxmox VE

  • Proxmox has allowed us to provide completely free training and an application development environment by reusing desktop hardware.
