Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

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.

OpenShift Is A Good PaaS Platform

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-01-29
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
One of the best PaaS platforms that I've used. I've sent an Java application there and I had a best experience. It works with Java, Ruby and more. Eclipse extension works very well with OpenShift. But the free plan have some limitations. And the OpenShift is very good if you're learning about Java containers and how it works.

Cons
Free plan is not too good and it has some limitations.

OpenShift is great - the UI is awesome it works like a charm.

Pros
It's fancy, it's modern, it supports many languages it has automatic scaling, compatible with Kubernetes and easily migrates to other OS

Cons
Nothing really, I am curious why people prefer Kubernetes rather than Openshift. I found Openshift easier to work with.

Deployment is becoming easier

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Managing kubernetes has been always hard for tech teams. But Openshift does it perfect and you only deploy your containers without headache. Also great UI makes big difference.

Cons
Some features that Kubernetes has is not accessible by UI and you also need to have knowledge of Openshif CLI tools. Sometimes you cannot find the answer of a question by looking only on documentations.

OpenShift - Best platform for developers

Reviewed 2016-01-12
Review Source: GetApp

I have been using OpenShift for more than 2 years now. I have seen lot of improvements in Openshift and it's getting better and better. The most important thing is that it provides a lifetime free account which can be used as a hands on over OpenShift. Most important, you can attach your own domain to your application, even on free account. Openshift works using gears and cartridges. It has now lots of cartridges available and you can also create new custom cartridge.

Pros
1. Free lifetime account with 3 small gears. 2. You can add multiple cartridges in a single gear. 3. attach your own domain to your application, even on free account. 4. Support deploy on git push

Cons
1. You can sudo login to your gear, but you can always contact customer care they will handle such situation.
