One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is OpenShift vs Oracle Java Cloud Service. Which would you recommend and why?  Thanks! --Rhea
Principal658I think this comparison is apples and oranges. OpenShift is orchestration of Docker on RedHat is unique set of applications while Oracle Java Cloud Service is PaaS by Oracle which enables Weblogic deployments on Oracle Cloud. OpenShift is used to Orchestrate Docker Containers and Oracle Java Cloud Service deploys J2EE server on Oracle Infrastructure. OpenShift licenses are mostly tied to cores it is being run on while Oracle is promoting use of license portability for existing clients. Overall OpenShift is New Generation tool to orchestrate containers and use Kubernetes for moving and Deploying containerized services. Oracle on other hand is giving PaaS service for existing and new Weblogic clients to move their applications to Oracle cloud seamlessly. Hope this puts some context around this comparison
NiteshKumarOpenShift is far more competent than Oracle Java Cloud, as is robust, reliable and highly customizable. Its been created by masters. OpenShift have great GUI and CLI tools allowing developers to deploy, test and delete projects as per their requirement, it also frees up ample time for the operations team to work on production readiness. There are Docker images and Kubernetes templates in it, deployments can be done with ease. Images are built in one go by the CI/CD pipeline and can be stored, for future reference also, in a repository. CI/CD integration is like tick-tac-toe with built-in Jenkins servers and S2i functionalities. We can then run these images in production environments. OpenShift (in fact Kubernetes) templates are JSON files that lists all components of a project: docker image name and version, runtime configuration of the images, services, routes and storage options in elite GUI format. Processing Speed is lightening fast in OpenShift.
Fahd Mirza ChughtaiWell, at the moment, if you are dealing in Dockers, then OpenShift and if you are already using weblogic then Oracle Java Cloud Service.

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Microsoft Azure or SAP HANA Cloud Platform. One IT Central Station user says about  Microsoft Azure that "it has become a one stop shop for cloud computing and continuing to grow".  Another user says about SAP HANA Cloud Platform, "[It] Improved our speed to bring our mobile applications into productive use in a cost-effective way". In your opinion, which is better?  Thanks for your help!
Joseph AbramoTwo different platforms. Once based on Memory processing for SAP applications and the other one a Cloud platform for multiple mission critical applications, app deployment and database. The Azure Cloud platform has the largest footprint in the market considering much of the applications run on Microsoft platform with large growth and interest from the Government and public sector and crown corporations. The Microsoft Azure is expanding and growing to adopt the market needs from H.R management, Data warehouse, Application development, collaboration, integration with On-prem services and systems and more. The SAP Hanna is a memory processing technology with minimum or no dependency on hardware acceleration such as SSD and high performance drives. Fantastic and innovative running applications in the cloud or on-prem with SAP centric operation.
Don ChewSAP HANA cloud is the only option for SAP enterprise customers for their dedicated SAP landscape. However, with Azure, there are flexibilities for both SAP and non-SAP landscapes cloud adoption. For enterprise customers on Office 365, Power BI, Lync and so forth, Azure seems a logical chance. With SAP HANA Cloud – there is a single neck to choke policy and approach by SAP for SAP Customers, however, with Azure, there needs to be a blend of suppliers to meet required business outcomes.
Does anyone have use cases for EMC ECS with Swift Protocol? Particularly, whether multiple namespaces can be accessed by one user and if the same user is in other AD groups, can be access all of their previous namespaces?
