Mirantis Expands in Europe to Help Accelerate OpenStack Adoption
March 05, 2014
Mirantis, the number one pure-play OpenStack vendor, is expanding its European operations to help support increasing global demand for OpenStack solutions, and to drive further market growth for its flexible, commercially-supported OpenStack distribution and professional services.
The company, headquartered in Mountain View, California, has opened an office in Amsterdam to supplement its existing centres in Poland, Ukraine and Russia. This will enable Mirantis to capitalise on the fast-growing interest in vendor-agnostic OpenStack environments in Europe, and to further enhance support for partners and customers.
Adrian Ionel, CEO of Mirantis, said“Enterprises are increasingly turning to the OpenStack open-source platform to drive their public and private clouds. By expanding our presence in Europe, we can further accelerate the agility and scalability benefits the OpenStack ecosystem delivers, and help customers succeed with their deployments. No other OpenStack distribution offers customers the same range of options or extensibility as Mirantis OpenStack.”
