OpenShift vs Stamplay: What are the differences?
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; Stamplay: API Lego for developers. Build back-end piecing together APIs as building blocks. The API-based development platform enabling developers to do 80% of the job in 1% of the time thanks to: out of the box APIs for users and data, one-click integration with any API, scalable infrastructure and SDKs. Build Rome in a day.
OpenShift and Stamplay are primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" and "Web App Builders" tools respectively.
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, Stamplay provides the following key features:
- One click API integrations with Stripe, Algolia, Twilio, Sendgrid and more
- Build server-side business logic with no code
- API to store any data type
"Good free plan" is the primary reason why developers consider OpenShift over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Stamplay.
OpenShift is an open source tool with 916 GitHub stars and 562 GitHub forks. Here's a link to OpenShift's open source repository on GitHub.

Programmers are very proud of their code. Everybody wants to build the best code as possible and they forget about delivering value to the future possible customers and the idea ends not happening.
I saw in Stamplay an opportunity to make all that ideas that were in the drawer happen—it is easy to use, to setup and it delivers what I—as a frontender—always wanted: data. Now, with my abilities I can give life for them, and finally I am launching the applications I've been dreaming for the last years.
Technically speaking, Stamplay delivers an API and there's no effort to get there. Also, all the integrations it gives us such as Stripe, Facebook, etc. are time saviors—I really just need to focus on what matters most, which is designing a great user interface for delivering the value my customers deserve.
Last but not least, are you experiencing a problem or have a question? Oh, no worries—this is your littlest problem because their staff are always ready to help you with the maximum professionalism and politeness you've ever seen.
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.
Elegant. Rolled out a site fast with auth and automation. I was super-impressed with how as a (very) part-time coder I could just get the job done.
The UI gives a lot of confidence of the care and skill gone into the product.
