We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.I love to automate everything and OpenShift was been born for that. It takes care of the network layer itself and I don't need to dive into it; I can work on a top level. Our project has numerous services designed to run in Docker containers, and we have run almost all pieces in OpenShift.The virtualization of my APIs means I no longer have to pay VMware large amounts of money to only run in-house solutions.Scaling and uptime of the applications are positives.Valuable features include auto-recreate of pod if pod fails; fast rollback, with one click, to previous version.Key features are WildFly, because it standardizes infrastructure and the git repository and docker. Git is essential for source code and Docker for infrastructure.Security is also an important part of this solution. By default, things are running with limited privileges and securely confined to their own resources. This way, different users and projects can all use the same infrastructure.

Cons

If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.I think that OpenShift has too many commands for running services from the CLI, and the configuration files are a little complicated.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.Needs work on volume handling (although this is already better with GlusterFS). Security (SSSD) would also be an improvement.It could use auto-scaling based on criteria such as transaction volume, queue backlog, etc. Currently, it is limited to CPU and memory.Credential not hidden, so people on the same group can view it.It would be great if it supported Bitbucket repositories too.The area for improvement is mostly in support for legacy applications.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing for providers is revenue-shared based. Providers should invest in hardware to set up the Jelastic cluster.
