    CloudStack vs OpenShift opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    CloudStack is about running virtual machines and infrastructure-as-a-service at scale. It is an alternative to OpenStack. OpenShift is a platform-as-a-service that uses Kubernates which is containers-as-a-service. So you can use OpenShift on top of CloudStack just as you can run OpenShift on top of OpenStack. So CloudStack isn't an alternative to OpenShift.
