Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with OpenShift.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I don't really see any improvements that need to be done.
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.
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.
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.
