What needs improvement?

We submitted over 25 requests for enhancement to Red Hat from the beginning of the OpenShift version 3.1, and they were implemented in the last version of the product 3.11. The main drawback was the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Based on Kubernetes vanilla, or Rancher or other PaaS, security is quite heavy to integrate with RBAC, network policies or namespaces isolation. With Openshift Origin or Enterprise we avoid security… more»

What is most valuable?

OpenShift helps by doing a lot of work for us. I love to automate everything and OpenShift was been born to do so. 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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our small team developed and rolled out everything to production in a short time, mostly thanks to OpenShift. It saves time. Using it, I just work on integrating services without worrying about containers and whatever is needed for them. OpenShift is a tool that does a lot of work for you. You just… more»

What needs improvement?

I think that OpenShift has too many commands for running services from the CLI, and the configuration files are a little complicated. This scares newbies from learning it. I hope that the OpenShift developers will improve this "dark side" of OpenShift.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

OpenShift has been running for the past three years, since the project started. We were developing the project's architecture, trying different solutions. In the end, we chose OpenShift as a well-known and intensively developed software, with many really useful features.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch. As the organization for which I am building solutions is embarking on a digital transformation journey, OpenShift is providing one of the key… more»

What needs improvement?

Most of the configurations are command based. If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great. You need to have in-depth technical knowledge of the platform to do any kind of application setup due to… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have not used any other container orchestration platform, except Kubernetes, which is the base platform for OpenShift.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

My role was not one of evaluation, so I did not participate in choosing the product.

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to move applications to OpenShift in order to remove legacy solutions.

The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications. 

What needs improvement?

I don't really see any improvements that need to be done.

We don't have bugs or glitches. We only have problems that are connected to our deployed applications, the applications that weren't fully prepared for the OpenShift deployment. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't contacted their technical support. Our devops team does contact them. They contacted them…
