The #1 Pure Play OpenStack Company

Some vendors choose to “improve” OpenStack by salting it with their own exclusive technology. At Mirantis, we’re totally committed to keeping production open source clouds free of proprietary hooks or opaque packaging. When you choose to work with us, you stay in full control of your infrastructure roadmap.

“Building an open-source company requires operational excellence and staying power, not just genius hackers with a vision of taking down VMware,” Mirantis co-founder and chairman Alex Freedland told Techcrunch this week. As much as we’d like for open source to be about passion and changing the world, the reality is that virtually all of the thousands of people who are contributing to OpenStack are getting a paycheck, and that money has to come from somewhere.


The Murano project keeps moving forward and is now an official OpenStack project. The project team has successfully extended Murano to support deployment of applications defined with Heat templates.


Established to accelerate the adoption of SDN and NFV, OpenDaylight provides an open platform for network programmability .


Kismatic is about to release a commercial distribution of Kubernetes, Google’s open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts.


Thanks to Docker’s success evangelizing the use of containers, Parallels has decided to open source its container product suite, stop developing its proprietary hypervisor and adopt KVM, and focus its development resources on driving containers forward to both service providers and enterprises, with OpenStack’s help.


Today, Mirantis joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation. But, unlike HP or IBM, we are not doing it to build a Mirantis Cloud Foundry distribution. We strongly believe it is the best strategic move for Mirantis to remain the pure play OpenStack company, and to actively integrate best-in-class outside technologies into OpenStack. We do this because it is the best way to give our customers choice in how they architect their cloud, and this philosophy applies to the PaaS layer. Whether it’s Cloud Foundry, Docker, OpenShift, Kubernetes, or some other PaaS – we don’t care as long as it runs on OpenStack.


Please join Mirantis at the Vancouver OpenStack Summit. We’ll be giving the following presentations.


OpenStack is meant to be pluggable; you should be able to swap out components as necessary (or desired). Normally, we’re talking about hardware–as long as you have the proper drivers, you can use pretty much any hardware to run your OpenStack cloud–but it also applies to additional systems such as Software Defined Networking components.


Whether you distribute hardware with OpenStack Mirantis pre-installed, or you’re a customer about to deploy it, you need to know the installation will operate smoothly ahead of time. You can now test your equipment with the new Mirantis Hardware Certification program to make sure everything works as it should before shipping Mirantis OpenStack to customers or going live with Mirantis OpenStack in your own environment. In this article, we cover the details of the certification process and instructions for hardware self-certification with Mirantis OpenStack.
