The Cloudcast (.net) #84 - Red Hat OpenShift - Are We There Yet? (35:18)
Date: April 18, 2013
By: Aaron Delp and Brian Gracely
Description: Aaron talks with Diane Mueller (@pythondj, Cloud Evangelist), Ryan Jarvinen (@ryanj) and Krishna Raman (@k__raman, Product Manager) from RedHat about the evolution of the OpenShift PaaS platform, the progress of PaaS with the industry, and where Red Hat fits into the OpenStack community.
Topic 1 – RedHat hosted a day long PaaS boot camp of sorts yesterday as a pre-event to the OpenStack Summit here in Portland. Tell us about it.
Topic 2 – Before we dig into the product, help everyone understand where the PaaS market is at today. We keep hearing “Early Days”, what kind of progress are we making? Is this something that is still 5 years off?
Topic 3 – I have been playing around with OpenShift (give my impressions), what uses cases are you seeing becoming popular and what use cases do you anticipate long term?
Topic 4 – Tell us about about the different architectures, the HA and scalability built into the product as well as both the public and private (OpenShift Origin) versions. I’ve also noticed many mentions of OpenShift running on SE Linux, tell me about that. Does that apply to both the public and private and how is SE Linux different? Is RHEL required for private cloud?
Topic 5 – There was an announcement today, any reactions or feedback? How will/could OpenStack and OpenShift potentially tie together now or in the future? I also noticed RedHat is now the #1 contributor to OpenStack, any feedback/comments there?
