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.

If you use excel, Zoho Creator is designed for you. The only scenario where it may not be appropriate is if you have thousands upon thousands lines of stored data where you would need to pay extra for this storage.

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.

  • Workflow efficiencies: Automated emails triggered by a user response has saved our College a huge amount of time and our users are very impressed about confirmation emails and the immediacy of our 'replies'.
  • Scheduled csv report exports which are then incorporated into our network database, easily.
  • The ability to develop an app which meets the specific needs of any organisation is the clincher. We have spent far too much money on 'off the shelf' IT 'solutions' which always lack the capacity to be adjusted. Creator, true to it's name, enables us to do (nearly) anything that we want to do. The scripting language is intuitive and is easy to learn. (I'm 62 yo and the last time that I wrote script was over 40 years ago - I was a Maths teacher in the interim )

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.

  • Sometimes the android app faces some problems displaying email, and it keeps loading.
  • It doesn't show the OTP screen when logging in through the WEB sometimes.

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.

I recommend Zoho Creator very often. A lot of companies go big earlier than they need to and spend way too much on SalesForce & Marketo. I worked for a small company with some limited budget that pivoted to sell it's product to the Enterprise. Zoho Creator was incredibly easy to set up, intuitive to use, and contains all the most essential features that most users need and seek in SalesForce. We integrated with MailChimp & Unbounce and were able to be incredibly useful in acquiring leads, nurturing them, and tracking pipeline in Zoho Creator. Our small sales team found it very easy to use and loved it.

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

Lower cost and easier implementation. I had been creating "cloud" solutions using active server pages (ASP) with a MS Access directory back-end before Zoho Creator. I did not want the worry of maintaining a server and required an easier way to build database forms. I was one of the very first users of Zoho Creator soon after it launched and have not really considered other options since around 2006.

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.

  • We really have not tracked the savings in a dollar amount, but our overall ability to have a birds eye view of all of our courses and classes at any moment has been a great tool. And we save time when we need information about courses or classes because the reports are there and ready when needed.
