OpenShift Room for Improvement

TechOps Engineer - Middleware & Containers specialist at EBRC -European Business Reliance Centre
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 upgrade from Openshift Enterprise 3.11 to Openshift Enterprise 4 up to now. But the new release Openshift Enterprise 4.2 add a way to migrate from old cluster to the new one easily based on Appranix solution. Namespaces with all data-protection mechanism is taken into account. View full review »

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 are the proper building blocks for DevOps needs. View full review »

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. View full review »

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 the complexity of configurations related to infrastructure, security, etc. Maybe in the future, we can get multi-cloud options such as GCP, Azure, etc. View full review »

Needs work on volume handling (although this is already better with GlusterFS). Security (SSSD) would also be an improvement. View full review »

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. Despite this, the competition is rapidly losing ground. View full review »

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. View full review »

Some of the features are platform-specific, so if it is ported to other cloud solutions it requires a lot of changes. View full review »

Installation and setup are a bit tedious, especially in a proxy environment. View full review »
