Red Hat OpenShift vs Platform.sh: What are the differences?

What is Red Hat 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.

What is Platform.sh? A second-generation Platform-as-a-Service built especially for continuous deployment. It is a Continuous Deployment Platform as a Service powered by a high-availability grid of micro-containers. Support any PHP and NodeJS applications with deep integration for Drupal and Symfony.

Red Hat OpenShift and Platform.sh can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Red Hat 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.

  • Drop in your applications, as-is
