Nanobox vs OpenShift: What are the differences?

Nanobox: The Ideal Platform for Developers. Nanobox is the ideal platform for developers allowing you to focus on code, not config, by removing the need to deal with environment configuration and dev-ops complexity; 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.

Nanobox and OpenShift can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Nanobox are:

  • Easy to setup
  • Robust dashboard
  • Application monitoring

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

Nanobox and OpenShift are both open source tools. Nanobox with 1.36K GitHub stars and 73 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than OpenShift with 913 GitHub stars and 561 GitHub forks.

      Heroku vs OpenShift. I've never decided which one is better. Heroku is easier to configure. Openshift provide a better machine for free. Heroku has many addons for free. I've chosen Heroku because of easy initial set-up. I had deployment based on git push. I also tried direct deployment of jar file. Currently Heroku runs my Docker image. Heroku has very good documentation like for beginners. So if you want to start with something, let's follow Heroku. On the other hand OpenShift seems like a PRO tool supported by @RedHat.

      Review ofOpenShiftOpenShift

      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.
