Mirantis Brings OpenStack to Kubernetes, Adding Private Cloud Capabilities to Mirantis Cloud Native Platform

To help customers ship code faster, the new Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes combines Mirantis’ track record of enterprise success with both Kubernetes and OpenStack.
Campbell, CA, December 10, 2020 — Mirantis, the open cloud company, today announced the first in a planned series of enhancements to the Mirantis Cloud Native Platform, enabling customers to ship code faster on a Kubernetes foundation that provides simplicity, cloud choice and security. This first release, already available to Mirantis Container Cloud customers via continuous updates, adds the ability to deploy, scale, and update private clouds on Kubernetes substrates.
Building on this foundation, Mirantis today released Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes — a containerized edition of the open-source infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platform chosen by Mirantis customers across industries and geographies to build some of the largest and best-performing private clouds in the world.
“Kubernetes and containers are superior technologies for building and releasing applications that run anywhere, scale gracefully, are resilient, and that can be updated without service downtime,” said Shaun O’Meara, global field CTO at Mirantis. “We engineered Mirantis Cloud Native Platform to deliver, monitor, and update Kubernetes clusters, anywhere — on bare metal, private, or public clouds — providing a simple, self-service experience for customers.”
Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes provides a feature-rich, mature environment for hosting both legacy apps and modern use cases such as Network Functions Virtualization, mobile network operations, and large-scale scientific computing. And it provides this without operational headaches — under the hood, leveraging Kubernetes to ensure configurability, resilience, robustness and seamless updates for OpenStack running on top of it.
“Organizations still need virtual machines and private cloud infrastructure to make them easy to consume and manage at scale — in many cases, hosting their most valuable applications,” said O’Meara. “At the same time, almost all are now moving forward with containers and Kubernetes, because they know these technologies will help them ship code faster and run applications with unprecedented resilience, scale, and economy. So Mirantis Cloud Native Platform addresses this whole continuum of needs, with maximum choice, simplicity, and security.”
By delivering a batteries-included, secure by default, and certified implementation of Kubernetes everywhere, and using it as a substrate for managing key applications and technologies, Mirantis Cloud Native Platform and Mirantis Container Cloud can deliver a simple cloud-like experience that supports all the development and hosting models organizations need (VMs, containers, orchestrators); managing the entire platform stack on any infrastructure (bare metal, private clouds, public clouds), and providing a unified management experience to smoothly operationalize these complex technologies across a diverse multi-cloud.
