Overall Satisfaction with OpenShift

Red Hat OpenShift is used by our company as an enterprise, hybrid cloud Kubernetes application platform mainly for the container orchestration purposes. It enables us to build applications using a choice of programming languages, frameworks and application lifecycle tools. It allowed us to enhance our existing project environments without insane costs or fear of platform and vendor lock-in.
  • Nicely supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux for worker nodes.
  • Helps teams reach production faster and easier.
  • Starter plan only supports one project.
  • No native support for agents other than Jenkins.
  • Uniting our teams on a single platform was really cost effective.
  • Allowed us to accelerate developers' productivity.
We have evaluated several platforms and as a result we came to a conclusion where "secure by default" approach in OpenShift is the winning factor for our use cases. Another OpenShift feature which really stands out is an integrated image registry which can be used with Docker Hub. All platforms make it possible to deploy applications in a manageable way, however OpenShift web console makes it much easier, allowing us to perform a majority of tasks directly through it.
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.

Do you think OpenShift delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with OpenShift's feature set?

Yes

Did OpenShift live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of OpenShift go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy OpenShift again?

Yes

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.
