Red Hat Certified Architect at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jun 25 2017

What is most valuable?

Great GUI and CLI tools allowing developers to deploy, test and delete projects on demand, freeing up time for the operations team to work on production readiness. Thanks to Docker images and Kubernetes templates, deployments are reproducible. Docker images allow us to package our applications with their configuration files and libraries in a portable format.... more»

What needs improvement?

The following issues need some attention: * Documentation: this is a very complex product and several areas are lacking proper documentation. * Templates: it takes a lot of effort to write satisfying templates for projects. More real-world examples and specialized editors would be valuable. * Day 2 tasks: how do I make sure my cluster works in the long term?... more»

Application architect, Senior UNIX system administrator, Middleware specialist at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Jun 29 2017

What is most valuable?

The CI and CD are fast, easy, and secure. Customers need this product and Red Hat certifies it on the RH product. The container customization with S2I is problematic.

How has it helped my organization?

In a couple of months, we can move from physical infrastructure to a container. There is no need to worry about service, since Red Hat does it for us. Consequently, we can focus on development.

What needs improvement?

I think that container development needs to be improved. The source 2 image is very comfortable, but it is not documented. There are no precise guidelines from RH. The source 2 image is the biggest addition that Red Hat gives to Kubernetes,... more»

Chief Data and Systems Architect at a tech services company
Jul 18 2017

What is most valuable?

The software defined network is the best feature in my opinion. While not as flashy as the container scheduling and health monitoring, the usage of a software defined network means administrators existing expertise can be leveraged. The SDN's... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I've assisted our clients in streamlining with development and deployment processes, achieving orders of magnitude reductions in time to market.

What needs improvement?

Possibly, the most complicated part is the configuration for an application. Other solutions do have easier ways to configure an application deployment, but they also come with greater restrictions.

Senior Systems Analyst at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Jun 26 2017

What is most valuable?

The pod solution and the on-demand solution are well suited, although I have feelings of loss regarding not using VMware. It is promising though. The project we are on is large scale so further information would be far more pertinent when... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Right now the major point is cost effectiveness. The improvements I am expecting will be better presented when in full production.

What needs improvement?

For some reason there have been some DNS issues. At this time I am not convinced it is OpenShift though. I will have to circle back to this one.

Director and Head of IT at a non-tech company
Apr 15 2018

What is most valuable?

* Excellent GUI support, so one does not need to use the command line client for almost any tasks. * Great support for building images directly from Git repositories with hooks. * Great integration with Jenkins for constant integration and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

The area for improvement is mostly in support for legacy applications. I believe OpenShift/Kubernetes will play an even more important role in the future, where it will eliminate a lot of the need for virtualization solutions. Such solutions... more»
