RedHat’s OpenShift 3 is coming somewhere this year and will be based on Docker and Kubernetes. See RedHat’s roadmap for the milestone planning. More and more details are coming out and for those interested in the main differences with the previous version, you could have a look at OpenShift 3 Beta Demo’s.
For the impatient, here are some of the highlights:

- The broker will be replaced by Kubernetes
Using Kubernetes’ services and pods, it should be much easier to configure scalable systems in much more detail. Also, a lot more “cartridges” should be available since, well, they’re now Docker images.
If you are curious on what this OpenShift is all about, we’ve done a video blog about that (and more are coming!):
