Red Hat Openshift is ideal for organizations using microservices and cloud environments. I like that the platform is auto-scalable, which saves overhead time for developers. I think Openshift can be a great alternative for a fully managed container technology that will work both on premises and in the cloud.


OpenShift simplifies the management of Kubernetes clusters for our developers. It is very simple to use, so even our new hires can manage it easily.


The security of RedHat is comprehensive - we don’t need to worry about patching manually since we can update the entire environment together with the security patches.


Some disadvantages I see in using OpenShift are that effectively using OpenShift to move from on-prem to the cloud requires a steep learning curve and there is not much documentation explaining how to do it.


VMware Tanzu provides a centralized control center for Kubernetes via scalability and consistent security policy management.


The easy integration of VMware Tanzu with other products is one of the features I like most. I like that you don’t need to integrate it manually with different vendors. The multitenancy and graphic interface simplify managing the containers.


One disadvantage I can find in VMTanzu is that it needs to incorporate new security essentials such as supporting zero-trust architecture. Another con is that it requires a high level of Linux knowledge to make the most of it.


Conclusions


Despite RedHat claiming to be designed for hybrid environments, in reality, it requires a lot of knowledge to manage it properly from cloud to on-premises and back. VMware Tanzu is a better option when it comes to easy integration and scalability.
