Mountain View, Calif., July 17, 2014 – Mirantis, a pure-play OpenStack vendor and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that Oracle Linux and Oracle VM have been integrated into the Mirantis OpenStack distribution, offering joint customers a supported, enterprise-grade OpenStack distribution optimized for running enterprise workloads. The integration is a collaborative effort of Mirantis and Oracle to adopt innovations from the community and offer more choice to customers.
With this announcement, the Mirantis OpenStack software subscription will now offer deployment and management capabilities with enterprise-grade support for running OpenStack clouds on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, for a variety of applications relevant to Oracle customers.
“We are happy to collaborate with Mirantis on this effort,” said Oracle Chief Corporate Architect, Edward Screven. “While Oracle ships its own OpenStack distribution with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, we also want to offer customers choice. We are providing the same high quality Linux support to every customer, no matter which OpenStack distribution they choose.”
“We’re pleased to team with Oracle on this OpenStack integration. It provides choice in an open, private cloud solution, optimized for enterprise workloads to mutual customers worldwide,” said Adrian Ionel, CEO of Mirantis. “It’s also a win for the OpenStack community as we continue to show more momentum with OpenStack in enterprise deployments.”
As part of this collaboration, Mirantis will offer enterprise customers a commercial bundle that will include subscription to Mirantis OpenStack with support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. Mirantis and Oracle will integrate support operations to provide a consistent service level agreement and a virtually seamless support escalation path for customers.
