Re: OpenShift Commons
Python,

What you are basically trying to say is that Openshift works-Period.

That's enough for most Consumers out there.

I am sure you will see even greater traction going ahead compared to where we are today.

Re: Oorah for Red Hat
ASksqn,

What about Apple?

Do you really feel their software is much better than what MSFT delivers to us ?

I don't think so.

The Interesting thing though is it may not even matter much in the Long-run.

Seeing how fast PCs and Laptops are losing market-share(to smartphones),Windows may not have much of a future going ahead.

Atleast that's the way it looks today.

Significant customers... broad uptake as well?
Phythondj, I think the pick up of OpenShift has been swifter than I realized. I heard multiple good references to OpenShift at the Linux Collaboration Summit. Jim Whitehurst on Dec. 18 in the third quarter earnings call said Red Hat had was cross selling application development technologies, including OpenShift, in over half of its deals. And the third quarter for fiscal 2015 included the first multi-million dollar deal for OpenShift support by itself. That's pretty interesting and a significant uptake by someone. And Krishnan (Subramanian, OpenShift director of strategy) has been on my case. I hate it when that happens.

Oorah for Red Hat
I'm always happy to see a Linux software company promoting other Open Source projects and software. The better to rid the world of Microsoft and its inherently insecure crapware.

OpenShift Commons

Struggling? With over 2 million apps deployed on OpenShift Online and having recently launched in Europe, OpenShift's technology platform is thriving. OpenShift Enterprise has been adopted at scores of organizations around the world - you can see a list of public references on the openshift website at /products/enterprise. OpenShift Commons has 35+ participating organizations with the majority having active deployments of OpenShift and have successfully incorporated OpenShift into their product offerings.  OpenShift Origin is ranked as the fifth most active project on Github when it comes to accepting pull requests.  

As for the RackSpace comment, there never was or has been any dependency on RackSpace to ensure the successful adoption of OpenShift on OpenStack. OpenShift has been actively participating in the OpenStack community for over 2 years, long before RackSpace's Project Solum initiative arrived on the scene.

OpenShift on OpenStack is a great example of the success of OpenShift's cross-community collaboration in action as the conversations involved members of Heat, Puppet, OpenStack, Docker, and Google's Kubernetes initiatives and contributions were made to OpenShift and OpenStack from multiple participants to make OpenShift a first class citizen on OpenStack and helped us earn InfoWorld's 2015 technology of the Year Award

OpenShift's understated success is rolling over the competition's hype.
