Overall Satisfaction with Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

We run our Kubernetes workload on an OpenShift cluster. Container Orchestration helps us to mitigate most of the problems with scaling and availability. Although we are in full control of all the parameters and can easily monitor them. Especially we are using OpenShift for security reasons and reliability. Within IBM Cloud we are using the offer of ROKS if we need some quick and short clusters for developing and testing.
  • Easy provisioning
  • Easy administration
  • Easy usage
  • Provisioning takes long time
  • Costs are very high
  • User administration is tightly coupled to IBM IAM
  • Reduces complexity of setup by 90%
  • Increases the monthly costs for cluster hosting by 50%
We are using IBM Cloud App ID as a simple method to get an OIDC provider for our applications, that are running within the OpenShift cluster. Also, IBM Cloud Object Storage is used within the workload to store data via an s3 compliant way. The IBM Cloud Container Registry is an easy way to store the container images, that are used within the OpenShift cluster. Especially we configured the system in such a way to stop the image delivery if the container images are vulnerable. IBMs Cloud Pak for Integration and Business Automation is providing a rich feature set, that is tackling a lot of use-cases. They are both installable in the provided cluster easily.

You should use Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud when you want to easily try out IBM's great CloudPak capabilities. There is integrated experience to install it on this cluster, which makes it easy to install. Within our company, we use it mainly for PoCs and PoTs, development, and testing. According to the high costs of the offering, we do not use it for the long term. There are other providers, that are providing OpenShift for less money.
