Overall Satisfaction with Red Hat OpenShift

Red Hat OpenShift is our new application platform and is the core of our digital transformation.
We use it to host our integration platform. As [the] first step, we use its container orchestration capabilities.
It enables us to build applications using a choice of programming languages, frameworks, and application lifecycle tools.
It allowed us to switch our existing project environments from traditional virtualization to the containerized world without excessive costs.
  • Very efficient support and very active community on the internet
  • Very efficient and user-friendly UX and CLI
  • Scalable, extensible
  • Multi-platforms, multi-technologies
  • Platform management made easy
  • Very smooth learning curve
  • OS log management could be improved (log reading can be tough)
  • It's sometimes hard to follow the new features flow
  • Software monitoring (the console gives very useful overviews and logs of the topology)
  • OPS and infrastructure management (scalability management, CPU and RAM configuration)
  • Modern apps lifecycle management
  • The fact that it's cloud ready
  • Improved time to market for business software
  • Platform scalability made easy
  • Easy monitoring, that means easier troubleshooting and improved software reliability
The other platforms are cloud based, and less relevant when you have to choose an on prem scenario.

Red Hat OpenShift encapsulates Kubernetes and provides more, so that you have an all-in-one platform instead of dealing with various separate services.

[Red Hat] OpenShift is cloud ready, that is very useful for the day when you'll be ready to switch to the cloud.

Would you buy Red Hat OpenShift again?


Red Hat OpenShift is the best platform for microservices-based modern apps lifecycle management and hosting.

[Red Hat OpenShift] is not suited for old windows server virtualization [or if] you have legacy heavy systems.
