Developer Workflow

Create application.

Use web console, Eclipse IDE, or command-line to create a new application and OpenShift will spin up a gear where that application will run.

Create application

Configure gear.

When you create your application, you also select from your choice of programming language, database, or other services via OpenShift cartridges. This can include your own favorite technologies via the custom cartridge capability.

Install cartridges

Code and push.

OpenShift uses git for managing code inside of the platform. Simply perform a "git push" to deploy your code to your application.

Deploy code
git / ssh

Build, test, publish. Automatically.

OpenShift automates the process with other tools such as Maven (Java builds), Jenkins (CI), and Apache (HTTP).

Complete build

OpenShift automates application scaling.

Using an HA-Proxy software load-balancer, OpenShift will horizontally scale the application with increasing load.
