Designed for both traditional and cloud-native applications, OpenShift Online (Next Gen) is perfect for developers who need a secure container application platform that is fast, easy to use, and will scale when they need it.
Quickly create applications on demand with simple, secure access to existing projects and workflows along with built-in GitHub integration.
Develop your application with the language and tools you want. Run multiple languages, frameworks, and databases on the same platform.
Take advantage of the Docker ecosystem. Instantly deploy and host a nearly endless range of stateful, stateless, or microservice-based applications with ease.
Fully automated application builds, deployments, scaling, health management and more that can be customized to fit nearly any requirement.
Incorporate persistent storage into your application components while retaining the ability to offer stateless cloud-native design.
Run your application using its own complete virtual network. Just tell the platform which endpoints to expose, and let it manage isolation and routing for you, using software-defined networking.
Create and manage applications utilizing a rich set of command-line tools, a powerful multi-device web console, or an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment such as JBoss® Developer Studio.

You will have access to the OpenShift Online (Next Gen) Developer Preview environment for 30 days, at which point your account will expire.
Your account, applications, and data will be permanently deleted to free up resources for other users when your account expires. This means that you will no longer be able to log in to the web console, authenticate using the OpenShift CLI tools, or access your applications and related data.
If you're interested in trying the OpenShift Online (Next Gen) Developer Preview again, just complete the registration form after your account expires and we will provision a fresh set of resources for you as soon as they become available.
At this time, the current (v2) and next generation (v3) platforms will be available in parallel. As the OpenShift Online (Next Gen) platform matures, we will publish a sunset plan for the current (v2) offering and provide you with adequate time to migrate your applications to the new platform.
The OpenShift Online (Next Gen) Developer Preview currently supports .NET Core (1.0), Node.js (0.10, 4), PHP (5.5, 5.6), Python (2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5), Ruby (2.0, 2.2, 2.3), and Perl (5.16, 5.20). Java (6, 7, 8, EE) is available via optional JBoss Middleware Services (JBoss EAP and JBoss Web Server).
The OpenShift Online (Next Gen) Developer Preview currently supports MariaDB (10.1), MongoDB (2.4, 2.6, 3.2), MySQL (5.5, 5.6), and PostgreSQL (9.2, 9.4, 9.5).

Yes, but with a few caveats. For security reasons, no images that run processes as root are allowed. Additionally, any Dockerfile VOLUME instruction must be mounted with either a persistent volume claim (PVC) or an EmptyDir at this time. See more considerations.
The Developer Preview is a time bound environment which can be used for prototyping or experimenting. We recommend that users do not deploy any production workloads. However, you can deploy a copy of your production workload to see how it performs in the environment.
During our Developer Preview period, OpenShift Online (Next Gen) is FREE!
Not at this time. OpenShift Online (Next Gen) will offer paid tiers when the offering becomes generally available.
During our Developer Preview period, we do not offer a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
Red Hat will provide updates via status.preview.openshift.com.
During the Developer Preview there are no paid / official support channels, however, you can contact the Community Enablement team, create a bug report in Bugzilla, or create a post in the OpenShift Forums.
The best way to contact the community enablement team is to log a request in the Developer Portal. Make sure that you select "Developer Preview" in the Reason for contact drop down.
If you would like to ask a larger group of people for help, including OpenShift users, engineers, and operations team members, you can ask a question using the OpenShift forums. Please make sure to use the "dev-preview" tag when creating a new post.
Red Hat's Bugzilla instance can also be used to log security sensitive bug reports (Product=OpenShift Online, Version=3.X, Groups=security) by selecting the "Security Sensitive Bug" flag (automatically selected with the provided link).
