OpenShift Review

Virtualization of my APIs has cut costs significantly

What is our primary use case?

Migration of old and custom APIs and development environments, for both internal and client-facing use. This migration has been going on for two and half years now. It is a rather large endeavour. I would estimate we have another six to nine months ahead.

How has it helped my organization?

No longer do I have to pay VMware large amounts of money to only run in-house solutions. (I give a particular heartfelt thank you for that).

What is most valuable?

This is an easy question to answer: the virtualization of my APIs. 

What needs improvement?

There have been some issues with security, in particular, that we had to address. At times they make it “clunky." I am quite confident these parameters will appear in the next releases. They have been reported as bugs and are actually in process. Despite this, the competition is rapidly losing ground.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
