PLATFORM AS A SERVICE
OpenShift: Platform As A service
When you are part of a rapidly developing business, delivering applications, services and solutions, then avoiding delays is paramount. So, what to do in such situations when you know that out-thinking your competitors with regards to new innovations and taking it to the market faster is the only way to take your business to the next level?
Here comes PAAS(platform as a service) as a solution to this problem.
Major benefits of PAAS include reduced cost and faster development and deployment. Rather than downloading and building all of those platform-level technologies on each server instance, and then later having to repeat the process as you scale, you can go to a simple Web user interface, click a few options, and have your application automatically deployed to a fully provisioned cluster. As application usage grows, you can later add more capacity by clicking a few more buttons. As you need to set up increasingly sophisticated architectures such as high availability and disaster recovery, you can do this from the same Web interface.
Once you’ve made the decision to adopt the PaaS model, the next question is which provider to choose? OpenShift by redhat, one of the pioneers of PaaS, has been running cloud-based platforms since 2011 and has some of the deepest expertise and over 2000 successful production customers.
Remarkable advantages of OpenShift include speaking your language, construct, improve and briskly establish tabs on demand in the programming language you prefer and also make the entire process self-executing. There is an inherent need to build a secure undertaking with awesome environment to run applications with well-organized and quality based containers orchestrated and scaled along with all the necessary tools to administer them. The basis of OpenShift is strong open source technologies that comprise of package topper constituents, each of which are promoted and backed by Red Hat and its ISV (independent software vendors) partners. With open source innovations like atomic kubernetes docker and Red Hat enterprise Linux, you can amalgamate your existing tools and infrastructure with OpenShift without worrying about security, compliance and reliability of the business domain.
