Re: 3 short questions about OpenShift

Generally OpenShift is built on top of Kubernetes. This means whatever
k8s provides you can safely assume OpenShift has + additional
PaaS-related features such as builds, deployments, image streams etc.
Have a look at regular OpenShift startup logs, you should see following

master.go:232] Started Kubernetes API at
master.go:232] Started Kubernetes API Extensions at
6853 master.go:232] Started Origin API at

which indicate you're starting both OpenShift and Kubernetes at the same time.

I hope that answers your question,

Okay thanks!
I will try to clerify my first question.

So OpenShift is working with Kubernetes (as orchestration tool). And Kubernetes is working on service-niveau.
I will quote:
“It is regularly said that in the new world of containers we should be thinking in terms of services (and sometimes micro-services) instead of applications.”

I have some different questions about OpenShift:

- Why is told that OpenShift works on service - niveau?

I don't understand this questions, sorry.

- Why do the old replication-controllers (rc's) still exist after a new deploy?

The mechanism for deployments works in such a way that it creates a new
RC (DC name + increased number). This allows easily rolling back to
previous deployments when requested [1].


- What is the advantage of a private docker registry when you have your own private internal repository?

I assume you mean the OpenShift internal registry vs one you have
in-house (iow. in your company). OpenShift works perfectly OK with both,
the added value of the former has push notifications which serve as
a when new image was pushed to the registry. This is heavily used with
ImageChangeTriggers for builds [1] and deployments [2].
