    Pros
    For a company that wants to modernize its legacy software, this is one of the best options.
    OpenShift is great - the UI is awesome it works like a charm.
    Openshift made it possible for us to setup a complete docker orchestration solution in an effortless way, including an amazing CI/CD pipeline which basically automates everything.
    Cons
    But the bugs that I had experienced from time to time were quite annoying and it was quite bad that there was no solution.
    Monitoring is poor logs are not accesible directly for real time , only first n number of lines are visible.
    It sometimes can be very difficult to debug and manage.

    Openshift: Best tool and software to manage the containers.

    Reviewed a year ago

    We are very happy with the Openshift and features that they offer to the container application deployment and security.

    Pros

    It's very easy to manage the container applications and issues related to them like container image scanning and the securities related to them before the production deployment.

    Cons

    Not much resource is available in the market who are expert in the container application security in market.

    Perfect Container Orchestrator

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    It solved our use case of transitioning from monolith to microservices.

    Pros

    If you have microservices use case and have following questions like How to scale my services? How to monitor my services? How manage deployment? How to make services resilient to failures? Answer to all the above questions is Openshift. As it eases the pain of development and there is solution available to a known services deployment issue already. Integration of our existing services was smoothly done.

    Cons

    We didn't face any major issue while implementing or changing our deployment strategy for microservices. However as a developer I think there are many parts that one needs to understand to get going. But I don't think that as an issue. All tools have some learning curve and Openshift is no different.

    Openshift - had to leave for Linode due to the forced and abrupt move from Openshift v2 to v3

    Reviewed a year ago

    It was an excellent product, Red Hat's management and treatment of users is the problem.

    Pros

    Openshift v2 was an excellent product that I couldn't fault at all, in fact I really really liked it. The problem came when Red Hat wanted everyone to move from v2 to v3 and gave very short notice and a very short timeline. Version 3 was completely different, based on containers.

    Cons

    As stated above, the real problem with Openshift is the way Red Hat forced everyone to move from v2 to v3 in a ridiculously short time. Documentation for migration was useless, I tried to migrate using it - it all failed. I could not trust Red Hat again after that experience, so I moved to Linode and have never looked back.

    Best Environment for deploying applications

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Easy to deploy and manage the applications in Redhat Openshift container

    Pros

    I am using Redhat Openshift container since 1 1/2 years and i really loved since deploying and monitoring the application is very easy when compare to deploying the application in traditional app servers like Tomcat

    Cons

    Pricing for enterprise is bit costly when compare with Amazon web services (AWS).Also engaging Redhat support team to troubleshoot the issue is very difficult

    Starting a new era in software architecture

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    Easy to use, full of useful feature. It make easy and valuable migration to innovative achitecture based on containerized approach. You can use a community edition (Openshift Origin) or chose the RED HAT edition. Based on Kubernetes. Fully integrated with many other useful tool for monitoring and manager the full software cycle, until the deploy.

    Cons

    Documentation is still poor. Not so fast in receive support from community. Security aspect need to be better debeate.
