The most valuable features are the advanced cluster manager and advanced cluster security
Pros and Cons
  • "The platform is easy to scale as it supports Windows worker node."
  • "OpenShift needs to improve their container storage."

What is our primary use case?

Our company supports most of the banks in India. We use four kinds of solutions broadly categorized as UPI and IPI deployed on AWS called ROSA and on Azure called ARO.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of OpenShift are the advanced cluster manager and advanced cluster security with the StackRox.

What needs improvement?

OpenShift needs to improve their container storage. In the next release of OpenShift I would also like to see simplification of Calico BGP with the container network and integration with MinIO, Portworx, and Rubrix.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using OpenShift Container Platform since 2016.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

OpenShift is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The platform is easy to scale as it supports Windows worker node.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support at Red Hat is good.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of OpenShift is straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When I compare the platform's deployment to other solutions like Kubernetes, OpenShift is good. When comparing with Rancher or VMware Tanzu, OpenShift is better than both. Specifically, the support and documentation of OpenShift is better than VMware.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate OpenShift an 8 out of 10 overall.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

A multi-tenant platform minus a GUI

What is our primary use case?

We are interested in using this solution as a Container as a Service (CaaS).

What is most valuable?

The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great. 

What needs improvement?

This product doesn't have a GUI. In order to use it properly, I need to connect it to a new GUI or build a GUI to manage it — it's pretty difficult.

This solution should come in a suite including other solutions like Grafana and Prometheus.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have only been using this solution for a couple of weeks; I am just testing it out. 

How are customer service and technical support?

As we don't have a license, we don't receive customer support. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial installation could be easier — it's complex. 

What about the implementation team?

I installed this solution by myself.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Currently, I am evaluating Rancher and OpenShift.

What other advice do I have?

At this point in time, I would give this solution a rating of seven out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Other
