ContainerShip vs OpenShift: What are the differences?
What is ContainerShip? Multi-Cloud Docker Hosting Made Simple. ContainerShip is an open source hosting platform that makes it simple to build, scale and manage containerized web infrastructure. It supports applications with persistent data needs, has built in disaster recovery, and lets you move between clouds with a click.
What is OpenShift? Red Hat's free Platform as a Service (PaaS) for hosting Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, Node.js, and Perl apps. OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.
ContainerShip belongs to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack, while OpenShift can be primarily classified under "Platform as a Service".
Some of the features offered by ContainerShip are:
- Service Discovery
- Internal DNS
On the other hand, OpenShift provides the following key features:
- Built-in support for Node.js, Ruby, Python, PHP, Perl, and Java (the standard in today's Enterprise)
- OpenShift is extensible with a customizable cartridge functionality that allows developers to add any other language they wish. We've seen everything from Clojure to Cobol running on OpenShift.
- OpenShift supports frameworks ranging from Spring, to Rails, to Play
ContainerShip and OpenShift are both open source tools. It seems that OpenShift with 915 GitHub stars and 563 forks on GitHub has more adoption than ContainerShip with 239 GitHub stars and 29 GitHub forks.

I needed a PaaS provider that didn't drop all the time and it's hard to find a good option for PHP applications. Openshift takes care of it. They are a little behind on PHP versions, but that can be solved with a custom cartridge. It requires a little more elbow grease to get rolling when you want to implement something they don't already have, but their quickstarts are great to get rolling with the basics quickly.
