Hi, I have a project at work to use Openshift PaaS v2.0 as a Software Integration Environment for ROS. Developers in different parts of the country will use Openshift to develop their ROS code for each node they have responsibility for. Is it possible to use cartridges within Openshift to develop ROS code? Or will I have to go the VM route?

What I gather from is that it's using Docker. It is certainly possible to deploy ROS using docker containers (see wiki/docker for some docs). The rest is probably up to you, but let's wait for other reactions.

Thanks for the response gvdhoorn! Unfortunately version 2.0 does not use Dockers, but cartridges allocated within gears. The plan is to use Openshift to develop ROS code for each node in the system, and test it using tools such as Jenkins, SonarQube, HP Fortify, and Git Stash.

cartridges, gears: this sounds a bit like marketing lingo. If you can figure out what the underlying technology is, we might be able to help you without having to understand Openshift.
