Can be controlled at a granular level and has good auto-scaling features

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for a financial institution, with a niche implementation. They're re-architecting their entire functions, flows, and creating microservices. They're running a security infrastructure platform as a service on OpenShift. We provide and develop services for the client.

Pros and Cons

  • "The auto scalability feature, which is based on smart agendas, determined from pre-prepared rules is the most valuable feature. You can also create different routes for deployment. Deployment types can be provided with an identifier, such as an ARB deployment. This really helped in rolling out releases without disrupting services for the end-users."
  • "From a networking perspective, the routing capability can be matured further. OpenShift doesn't handle restrictions on what kind of IPs are allowed, who can access them, and who cannot access them. So it is a simple matter of just using it with adequate network access, at the network level."

What other advice do I have?

A common mistake is to assume that the solution can change the architecture type. e.g. some people think by using this solution they can change their application architecture into a microservices architecture. OpenShift is an orchestration architecture. These types of solutions are not intended to be run as a microservices architecture. Very often, the two become confused. As the cost of this product is expensive it should only be considered for large enterprises. There will also be a need to hire technical people, and this may also involve a training cost. There has to be a cost-benefit. It…

Developer-friendly with good functionality and delivers applications to production fast

What is our primary use case?

The way our consultancy works is we have a number of internal products which we use, such as testing systems. We deploy our applications in scientific products and take advantage of automation. We are focusing on automation development for our customers.

Pros and Cons

  • "Openshift is a very developer-friendly product."
  • "The solution needs to introduce open ID connect integration for role-based access control."

What other advice do I have?

We are a Red Hat partner. We're a consultancy firm. We started using OpenShift version two, then we migrated to OpenShift's version three and now we are on a complete version four. We tend to use all deployment models - on-premises, public and private clouds, and hybrid options. If a company is considering the solution, I would advise that they maybe start working with some guys who have experience with the product. It will be much more work otherwise, and you can save time by avoiding POCs. Overall, I would rate the solution ten out of ten. Even though the pricing is high, I knew what I was…
