It’s a big day for us at Mirantis.
We’re proud to welcome great new investors to Mirantis: Insight Venture Partners and August Capital, two of the most successful firms in the business. They’ve backed iconic companies like Twitter, Skype, New Relic and Splunk, among many others. We couldn’t wish for better partners as we build the leading pure-play OpenStack company.
I am also immensely grateful to our customers, partners,existing investors and my colleagues. They believed in us when the odds for success looked slim, yet had so much faith in our mission and our team.
They saw what we did: Openstack can change the world. It turbocharges the software revolution by empowering developers and end-users with easy and instant access to computing power — free of any vendor lock-in.
So, what can you expect from us in the months and years ahead?
We will double down on our R&D investment to make OpenStack the cloud platform of choice for the enterprise: easy to use, reliable and completely open. Mirantis is committed to building the best OpenStack software, and contributing code back upstream.
We will invest in helping our partners add their unique value to Mirantis and build a successful business together with us. Our customers have diverse use cases that don’t lend themselves to a one-size-fits-all, single-vendor approach. A rich and vibrant partner eco-system for OpenStack will is key to success.
Finally, we want every Mirantis customer to feel as if they are our only customer. We will continue to invest heavily in our 24/7 support and operations team so that people can rely on us with complete confidence.
Opportunities like this don’t come along often in one’s lifetime. We owe it our customers, our investors and ourselves to make the most of it. For us, this means giving it our all and doing our very best work, every single day.
Adrian Ionel is CEO of Mirantis.
