All applications on the Free Plan are created on gears within the
us-east-1 Amazon EC2 region. Bronze and Silver plans also allow the hosting of applications in the
eu-west-1 Amazon EC2 region. Dedicated Node Services offer the ability to host applications in any Amazon EC2 region.
All OpenShift Online plans offer 3 free small gears (512MB RAM and 1GB disk space each). Larger gears and additional storage are available on both the Bronze and Silver plans. The premium plans also allow access to additional gears beyond the 3 free small gears provided to all users.
Application scaling enables your application to react to changes in traffic and automatically allocate the necessary resources to handle your current demand. The OpenShift Online infrastructure monitors incoming web traffic and can automatically add or remove application gears to handle changes in request volume.
All OpenShift Online plans allow you to create and use a custom rhcloud.com subdomain, along with the ability to use your own custom domain name. All applications can also utilize a shared SSL certificate. Premium plans allow the creation and management of more than one domain and the ability to use a custom SSL certificate.
