We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"If customers focus on primary apps or if they are using them for data science, this is a good solution."

More HPE Ezmeral Container Platform Pros →

"The best feature is the management for the port life cycle, which automatically recycles, pulls, and scales up and down based on needs and requests.""Technical support is good; they are fast and reliable.""The banking transactions, inquiries, and account opening have been the most valuable.""The platform is easy to scale as it supports Windows worker node.""I have found the ability to scale up is most valuable.""Red Hat's security throughout the stack and software supply chain is good. It is a lightweight operating system. You don't have to worry about the security patches on the system. You can update the entire environment with security patches, which is a nice feature.""It’s user-friendly.""The architecture is the best. The solution is scalable if you are on a container-based solution."

Cons
"The modernization in Ezmeral could be improved."

More HPE Ezmeral Container Platform Cons →

"Getting the solution quickly and troubleshooting quickly are both areas where I think it needs some work.""Things are there and the documentation is there, however, there still needs to be quick guides available.""The monitoring and logging could be improved.""There should be a simplification of the overall cluster environment. It should require fewer resources. Just to run a simple Hello World app, it requires about seven servers, and that's just crazy. I understand that it is fully redundant, but it's prohibitively expensive to get something simple going.""The setup process is not great.""OpenShift needs to improve their container storage.""The product monitoring tool does not work for us.""It has an option to install OpenShift without connecting it to the Internet. We tried this, but it was very hard. We couldn't manage to use that option. We wanted to use it offline for installations, updates, upgrades, etc., but we didn't find the offline installation and updates easy. This could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "OpenShift with Red Hat support is pretty costly. We have done a comparison between AWS EKS (Elastic Kubernetes Services) which provides fully managed services from AWS. It's built on open-source-based Kubernetes clusters and it is much cheaper compared to Red Hat, but it is a little expensive compared to ECS provided by AWS."
  • "It depends on who you're talking to. For a large corporation, it is acceptable, other than the significant infrastructure requirements. For a small organization, it is in no way suitable, and we'd go for Amazon's container solution."
  • "The license to use the OpenShift Container Platform is free. If you are capable with Java you can modify it."
  • "The price is slightly on the higher side. It is something that can be worked on because most of the businesses now have margins."
  • "The pricing is a bit more expensive than expected."
  • "We paid for Cloud Pak for integration. It all depends on how many VMs or how many CPUs you are using. They do the licensing based on that."
  • "We currently have an annual license renewal."
