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.

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

I believe it's an excellent solution for any scenario which requires virtualization. The only scenario where it might not be the best solution would be in building out a cloud infrastructure - you could certainly integrate RHEV for something like that but I think that either OpenStack or CloudStack might be a better solution for building cloud environments.

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.

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

  • RHEV can acquire user and group information from an Active Directory service without a great deal of confusing configuration.
  • RHEV management is browser-based and can be accessed from any platform.
  • Online Snapshot capability, provides a better redundancy than vsphere.

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.

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

  • Ran into a regression when updating firmware for IGEL
  • Desktop froze and became non responsive on a few occasions.
  • Server crashed and took down all the clients in the Thin setup.

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

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.

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.

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

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

VMware ESXi is a more mature technology, as it has been around for a longer period of time. However, automating ESXi installations requires hacking OEM media and an intense amount of knowledge of how ESXi operates under the hood. The WebUI and associated functionality for ESXi is more stable than RHEV, however ESXi does not support open-source community projects such as Gluster, Cinder, or Glance natively and relies on HW RAID, NAS, or SAN to achieve high availability. Additionally ESXi licenses tend to be more expensive than using RHEV or it's freely available sibling oVirt.

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.

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

  • Replacement costs are high for employee PC hardware and such a product has helped cut down costs and will continue to do so once deployed across more departments
  • Increased availability and manageability
