Know OpenStack? Prove it. An IT professional who has earned the Mirantis® Certificate of Expertise in OpenStack has demonstrated the skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to create, configure, and manage OpenStack environments.
Some vendors choose to “improve” OpenStack by salting it with their own exclusive technology. At Mirantis, we’re totally committed to keeping production open source clouds free of proprietary hooks or opaque packaging. When you choose to work with us, you stay in full control of your infrastructure roadmap.
Following 50 pages of instructions and examples provided by a Rackspace OpenStack instructor, I kept running into little problems, Mirantis came into our office and stood up Mirantis OpenStack for our POC Dev environment in a few hours. After they left I tore everything down and rebuilt our POC over and over with Fuel.
