  • Openshift is great as a common infrastructure to host both CNF and VNF.
  • As until now network segregation is not possible on ODF, and the storage traffic is using the public interface, it makes the Openshift with Hyperconverged Storage not meet our security guidelines, and we are using an external CEPH, but that makes the life cycle management is a bit complicated, as we need to have 2 life cycles one for Openshift and one for CEPH.
  • Logs in Openshift 4.9 are not always clear, which is making the troubleshooting a bit complicated, logs require more content.

Best suited: When starting new developments you have the opportunity to design and think the application to be fully "cloud native" and if you could manage that, OpenShift is teh best platform to developers and then to run the workloads. Less appropiate: When your organization still use old software architectures patterns and some monolotics apps need to be "agilized". Some of the points of OpenShift is that you could "use it for ols monolith" but I saw that the learning path is really long for some roles and it's really difficult to do the sizing of the that kind of apps.

Red Hat OpenShift helps developers delivering high-quality applications and functionalities in a faster way and improves business and efficiency results satisfying the customers’ and users’ needs. Continuous application management needs less time compared to running your applications on Kubernetes stacks yourself and it reduces the applications’ developed costs associated with the infrastructure and platforms’ development.

I suggest learning and implementing the OpenShift container platform If you are new to containers as it is easy, robust, and secure compared to other container orchestration platforms. It is a successful software stack for companies that require certified software and want to move to containerization. We are currently using it with our IIoT platform.

Red Hat OpenShift UI is amazing and is very helpful to train engineers to deploy Kubernetes without much prior knowledge.
On the other hand, if an issue occurs, it is very difficult to find the proper logs and the root cause of the issue immediately. It can be made more search friendly.

Red Hat OpenShift is one of the best containerization and orchestration tools available today. It has wide support with all the popular programming languages and different development frameworks. It makes management and deployments very simple and easy for the engineers and saves a lot of time.

If your company has already been using the Red Hat software/service and is interested in extending it to an on-premises K8 environment, then OpenShift might be worth a quick try-out to see what it offers to meet your demands. It might be less appropriate for companies that want to have cross-platform K8 environments.

[It is a] suitable platform that is used to monitor the status of your containers. This is not applicable to traditional Virtual Machine Monitoring. It is particularly useful when running tests in lower environments, for instance, you will be able to [easily] modify the config values and then restart the container all through [Red Hat] OpenShift to test a different application flow.

[Red Hat] OpenShift is well suited to any organization that wants to put their apps in the cloud and alleviate themselves from all that infrastructure and cost or an organization that wants to self host a platform environment solution that would allow better use of resources, effectively alleviating the cost of spinning up/scaling servers.

Great if you want a cloud-agnostic platform to run containers, and have a large platform team to install, maintain, and admin it. Not great if you have autonomous teams that are in control of their own infrastructure, and need to be able to change cluster-level settings, or if you don't have a lot of money for an upfront license charge.

Red Hat OpenShift is well suited for solving problems related to deploying, managing and monitoring containers. It reduces the complexity of the container management process in real time.
Red Hat is less appropriate because there is no proper way to manage an view the logs which heavily increases our loads.

Red Hat OpenShift is perfect if you need to use Kubernetes on-prem, for cloud it could be costly and less effective than managed providers. If your on-premises environment is big and you don't want to pay for virtualization, it is possible to deploy OpenShift on bare metal.

OpenShift is a perfect solution if your teams develop applications with multiple, different languages and tools and deploy these through container images. Does not matter whether your choice of infrastructure is on premise, a public cloud or hosted; OpenShift supports all options. On the other hand it is much less useful for non-dockerized projects.

OpenShift is well suited in most cases. They provide 1GB of free space upon sign up. Customer support is also quick and responsive. Recent server movement from Jboss servers to a more complex server system has made things a bit difficult but still, it is great and one of the better tools in the market.

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.

I discovered that our projects needed a rewrite on a lot of server code, the project we are currently working on requires reverting old versions of our project, GitHub support, persistent connection, source to image, vertical scaling, horizontal scaling, simplified routing What's great is that OpenShift supported that not only that they have a basic example to get started fast. Another great feature is that their online console is very fast.

Openshift is well suited if you want to go for docker and kubernetes but you want to hide the complexity of these 2 technologies. Openshift is a layer above these 2 technologies that makes easy to use container technology. If you already have RedHat OpenStack (for VM technology) you shouldn't use OpenShift.

1) When you need early deployment.
2) When the number of people involved is not more than 100 (provided you are using a free version).
3) Also, there is a minimum number of applications we can keep active at one time. So if you have to keep multiple applications on at a time it is not possible [to use] free Open Shift.

OpenShift proved valuable in spinning up environments quickly with specific requirements. This enabled the team to evaluate tools quickly without having to request resources from other departments, develop proof of concept solutions away from our production environment, work collaboratively as part of smaller teams and ultimately to be as creative and innovative as possible.

I think if you have a lot of data requirements, you could still use Openshift, but you might need to store your data elsewhere. It seems particularly suited for low content websites with bursty traffic patterns. The online interface is very simple, which is good for those (like me) who prefer to configure things from an SSH shell.

I would definitely recommend OpenShift or give it a trial period. I think it gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, build process and even having log file access using RHC commands. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure it using their tools for each application.
