We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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).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.Self-provisioning support saves a lot of time and unnecessary work from the system administrator who can use this time to run and monitor the infrastructure. For the developer, this means less time waiting for the provisioning and excellent flexibility for development, testing, and production. Also, in such systems it is easy for developers to monitor applications even after deployment.

Cloud has provided less maintenance.Backing up and recovery for my domain is very easy and fast. In addition, applying patches and undoing applied patches is effective and easy to do.Self-provisioning, easy to choose from WebLogic 11g to 12c.The automated features of auto-purging in 12c helps clear disk space on a routine basis.One key feature is getting to choose the Virtual Machine configurations while setting up the server, which is an automated process.The ability to manage security and access the server from any location with complete security using SSH is perfect for performing crucial tasks, even while travelling.The auto-backup, incremental backup and restoration features can be invaluable for management.

Cons
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.

The product is satisfactory but we need more training on managing the machine itself. For example, how do we add more storage, how do we extend a specific portion? I would like to see videos illustrating some of the technical tasks that we often need to do.Needs better integration with other Oracle/non-Oracle products.

I 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

OpenShift for sure over Oracle Java Cloud.

Three words sum it up nicely… Money, Market, and Manageability.

Money from a cost comparison for deployment, operations, and capacities.
Market from a how many people are leveraging it and skill available to support the operations of it.
Manageability from skills available compared to the capabilities of the platform.

Well, at the moment, if you are dealing in Dockers, then OpenShift and if you are already using weblogic then Oracle Java Cloud Service.

OpenShift for sure. It is very good open source technology with good future ahead.
