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.

Redis Cloud

Redis Cloud is very well suited for scenarios where fast data access is required or somewhat unstructured data needs to be stored. For us, it has worked very well for user session storage. However, if you have large amounts of structured data that is not frequently accessed, Redis is not the solution and a traditional relational database is likely more appropriate.

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.

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.

Redis Cloud

  • The only area of improvement I have found is the documentation is sometimes lacking and could be a little more comprehensive.

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.

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

I've used Heroku Redis and RedisToGo. Redis Cloud has the best free/developer plan, and we have never had an issue.

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.

Redis Cloud

  • Redis Cloud is very affordable and therefore the cost is negligible when compared to the benefits— immediate ROI with very little startup costs.
