Migrating RafaEShop Application on OpenShift
In Chapter 9 you saw how to migrate MongoDB databases to two cloud platforms—MongoHQ and MongoLab. As their names suggest, these platforms are cloud-based, hosted database solutions dedicated to MongoDB, which means that the applications that use these databases must be hosted in another place. But if you don't have such a place, or you want to have the entire application (not just the database) in the cloud, you have to focus more on cloud computing platforms, like OpenShift from Red Hat. As quoted on the www.openshift.com web site, "OpenShift is Red Hat's free, auto-scaling Platform as a Service (PaaS) for applications. As an application platform in the cloud, OpenShift manages the stack so you can focus on your code."
