OpenShift vs OVH: What are the differences?

Developers describe OpenShift as "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. On the other hand, OVH is detailed as "Dedicated infrastructure for your business". Hundreds of new servers are installed in our 12 datacenters everyday. For our clients, this guarantees bare-metal resources accessible in less than an hour, and the liberty to use it to rollout the software of their choice. The many functions available on our dedicated servers allow our clients to manage their infrastructure autonomously.

OpenShift can be classified as a tool in the "Platform as a Service" category, while OVH is grouped under "Dedicated Cloud Hosting".

Some of the features offered by OpenShift are:

  • 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

On the other hand, OVH provides the following key features:

  • Delivery of servers in less than an hour 24/7/365
  • Full user control
  • Guaranteed bandwidth

"Good free plan" is the primary reason why developers consider OpenShift over the competitors, whereas "Cost effective" was stated as the key factor in picking OVH.

OpenShift is an open source tool with 915 GitHub stars and 563 GitHub forks. Here's a link to OpenShift's open source repository on GitHub.

Vungle, Hazeorid, and STS are some of the popular companies that use OpenShift, whereas OVH is used by Webedia, Flat, and Critizr. OpenShift has a broader approval, being mentioned in 50 company stacks & 52 developers stacks; compared to OVH, which is listed in 66 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.

    Hetzner Online AG

    We use Hetzner Online AG since the inception of our business, because of the great prices, marvelous support and great interface (especially the new cloud interface). Other options that we tested are DigitalOcean (was more expensive than the new hetzner cloud and didn't offer "huge" dedicated servers), @Vultr (about the same issue as with DigitalOcean , although the prices were better), OVH (Prices, old interface, no "tiny" packages and [at least back at the day] only monthly payment) and Living Bots (Only dedicated servers, too expensive for our needs).

    Hetzner offered the best spectrum of servers and has great prices and REALLY great prices in the server auctions.

    Heroku

    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.

    We use OVH to host the majority of our servers spread across the globe. This allows us to have a single point of contact for our main hosting when issues arise as well as giving us the ability to quickly failover servers when needed. OVH also helps us by keeping the price we pay for servers down therefore keeping the fees on our products themselves down.

    The majority of our dedicated servers are hosted with OVH, due to their competitive pricing, easy to use control panels and quick on-site support options.
