OpenShift Now Supports Windows; GoDaddy Joins OpenStack 19

sfcrazy writes "It's not The Onion: Red Hat has partnered with Uhuru Software to bring Microsoft .NET Apps and SQL server capabilities to Red Hat's Platform-as-a-Service solution OpenShift." This brings OpenShift to Windows, and not .NET applications to GNU/Linux OpenShift installations. RedHat customers have apparently been asking for this for a while. The source is available: "The consistent model for managing both Linux and Windows systems that OpenShift provides allow organizations to achieve greater efficiency and agility. Windows is now a full-fledged member of the Open Source world of OpenShift. In keeping with the spirit of Open Source, Uhuru has made all of its OpenShift integration software for Windows available to the community and is working to have it officially integrated into OpenShift Origin."

In related news (OpenShift is usually used on top of OpenStack), darthcamaro writes "The OpenStack cloud platform keeps on gaining new converts. The latest is GoDaddy which today announced it is now officially supporting the OpenStack Foundation. How GoDaddy came to officially join the OpenStack Foundation is interesting, apparently the OpenStack Foundation found out that GoDaddy was using OpenStack though job postings."

    Can someone explain the enigmatic "It's not Onion"? Is it like "I can't believe it's not bacon"? Is it an ungrammatical reference to The Onion? (And if so, what's it doing in this summary?)

    Microsoft has a ridiculously nice PaaS offering in Azure, but they really don't have any presence in the on-premises/hybrid cloud. They can put Azure in your corporate environment, but it's a very, very heavy lift - you can't just go download it and install it, though they have some limited subset of it that you can do that with.

    This actually surprises me as they don't really have an answer to OpenStack and the other OS cloud stacks. Seems maybe they'll start getting more involved, which is a good thing.

    Yes, I'm a Microsoft fan as I'm a .NET developer and I said some good things about MS above. The neckbeard contingent is free to chime in with blatherings about "shills".

      Yeah, I tried Azure recently, and its pretty damn nice. Amusingly, I was looking for an environment for a node.js project, and the git integration for node.js deployment is just beautiful.

      I did not expect that.

      OpenStack isn't exactly a lightweight easy option, you know.

Always draw your curves, then plot your reading.
