Google Anthos vs OpenShift: What are the differences?

Google Anthos: Bringing the Google Cloud to you. Formerly Cloud Services Platform, Anthos lets you build and manage modern hybrid applications across environments. Powered by Kubernetes and other industry-leading open-source technologies from Google; 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.

Google Anthos and OpenShift belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Google Anthos are:

  • Google Kubernetes Engine Support
  • GKE On-Prem Support
  • Istio on GKE Support

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
