Red Hat OpenShift


OpenShift is Red Hat’s free, auto scaling platform as a service (PaaS) for MongoDB applications in the cloud.

What can OpenShift do for you?

OpenShift takes care of all the infrastructure, middleware and management headaches that come with hosting applications in the cloud and lets developers focus on what really matters, their code and customers.

What does OpenShift support?

OpenShift supports MongoDB backed applications written in Java, Node.js, Ruby, PHP, Perl and Python. OpenShift also supports the developer tools you use everyday like Git, Eclipse, Titanium, Jenkins and Maven.

How does OpenShift work?

  1. Sign up – All you need is an email address.
  2. Install the OpenShift client tools
  3. Create a domain for your application
  4. Push your code to OpenShift with Git

Congrats, you are in the cloud!

What’s the catch?

There is none. When you sign up for OpenShift you get access to 1.5 GB RAM and 3 GB storage for FREE, to run your MongoDB apps. Need more resources? Just ask.
