Jason Shepherd: OpenShift

  • Jun 13, 2012 · 5:00 PM

Openshift is a free hosting service, providing various platforms, and frameworks for developers. It allows you to quickly develop, and deploy applications live to the web. Recently Openshift became a open source project, when Red Hat published the source code.

Sign up for a free account, select a platform, such as JBoss application server, then start developing, and pushing your commits to Openshift with Git instantly. Once you have selected a platform, you can add services, such as MongoDB quickly and easily as well. You can also use Jenkins as an embedded build server.

Red Hat is staying true to it's open source origins, by releasing it source code to the community. Called Openshift Origin, it can now be run on a cloud provider of your choice, including Red Hat's Open Stack. Open Stack allows you to run your own private cloud, which you could host Open Shift on, or host it on Amazon EC2.

    Interesting topic, although a bit more preparation would have helped.

    Thanks for the invitation Jason. At the moment it looks like I may have trouble making that date; we'll see how things pan out though. You're correct on the IaaS comment. They have public and private openstack offerings, but nothing like openshift.

    Hi Matthew,

    I'd love to hear more about Rackspace. Please come along, and help us see some of difference and similarities between Red Hat's Openshift, and Rackspace. From reading about Rackspace it seems to be more of a Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, than a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering like Openshift, but I'd like to hear views.

    Don't forget Rackspace in the list of openstack hosters and contributors :)
