Our Mission

Our mission is to be the world’s most effective vehicle for converting open source innovation into customer value.

By providing continuous delivery of open cloud software via a managed services model, Mirantis enables enterprise application owners to become free of infrastructure and operations concerns. And, with an option to transfer operations control, enterprises can reap the benefits of open source standards and avoid vendor lock-in.

Company Overview

Mirantis is the flexible infrastructure company, harnessing open source to free application owners from operations concerns. The company employs a unique build-operate-transfer approach to deliver two distinct products:

  • Docker Enterprise, the market-leading container platform for accelerating the development and delivery of modern applications, enabling developer choice, simple onboarding and automation across dev and ops, and a secure pipeline to Kubernetes environments that run anywhere.
  • Mirantis Cloud Platform, which is based on Kubernetes and OpenStack and helps services providers and enterprises run highly tunable private clouds powered by infrastructure-as-code and based on open standards.

To date, Mirantis has helped more than 200 enterprises and service providers build and operate some of the largest open clouds in the world. Its customers include iconic brands such as Adobe, Cox Communications, DocuSign, Reliance Jio, STC, Vodafone, and Volkswagen.
