OpenShifting Around – a sensible approach for next generation

Quoth the OpenShift blog:

Cartridges play well with others – and RedHat will approve some of them:

The OpenShift v3 Cartridge format will adopt the Docker packaging model and enable users to leverage any application component packaged as a Docker image.

Orchestration will be much more robust:

Red Hat is leveraging Kubernetes and work initiated in the Geard project to bring orchestration and scheduling capabilities to OpenShift v3 and better manage large scale environments.

And they’re making all the “Enterprisey” features of JBOSS into their own containers, to make them much easier to deploy:

Lots of smart moves by RedHat, IMHO. Making life easier for systems managers like us. Only problem – gotta stay on the RHEL stack.
