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.
