Mirantis Unlocked Program Delivers OpenStack Out-of-the-Box with 47 Partner Technologies

Certifies Best-of-Breed Technology Vendors Including Nuage Networks, EMC, Citrix, SolidFire, Oracle, Pivotal

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – May 18, 2015 – Mirantis, the pure-play OpenStack company, today launched Mirantis Unlocked, a partner program that will help infrastructure and solution providers seamlessly deliver technology in the OpenStack ecosystem. Mirantis Unlocked encompasses Mirantis’ technology partnerships with market-leading companies such as Citrix, Juniper Networks, VMware, Brocade, and EMC; and innovative technologies from Nuage Networks, SolidFire, Maxta, Avi Networks, Metaswitch Networks, Cumulus Networks, BigSwitch, ActiveState, Midokura, and ScalR.

“OpenStack enables enterprises to weave components from a diverse set of infrastructure innovators into a cohesive datacenter operating system,” said Mirantis CMO and co-founder, Boris Renski. “The vision of Mirantis Unlocked is to take best-of-breed infrastructure technologies through a rigorous certification process, giving customers an out-of-the box experience with OpenStack without limiting their infrastructure choices.”

The debut of Mirantis Unlocked follows recent integrations with Oracle Database, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Stackato Cloud Foundry, EMC, Google Kubernetes, Juniper Networks Contrail™ Networking, and many more (see full list here).

Mirantis Unlocked partners gain go-to-market support and pre-validation and certification with Mirantis OpenStack, a market-leading pure play OpenStack distribution that’s easy to install and operate at scale. Beyond simple API interoperability and infrastructure driver testing, infrastructure Unlocked providers are able to develop, certify and document a plugin for the Fuel OpenStack installer, automating the customer deployment and configuration experience. Similarly, Mirantis Unlocked partners focused on providing developer platforms and tooling can integrate with OpenStack via the Murano application catalog.

Later this year, Mirantis will launch turnkey OpenStack appliances with best-of-breed Mirantis Unlocked partners, further simplifying the complexity of building clouds at scale. The OpenStack community can preview the first rack-based appliance, built in collaboration with Dell, Intel, Juniper Networks, and Redapt, at Mirantis Booth P7.
