Continuously Delivered OpenStack
Mirantis Cloud Platform (MCP) includes a Lifecycle Management (LCM) toolchain called DriveTrain, based on open source software that enables continuous delivery of Mirantis OpenStack software artifacts via a familiar DevOps toolchain.
Update Individual Services
Mirantis takes upstream OpenStack code, tests it, applies additional fixes and enterprise-grade features, and packages the OpenStack services into VM images that are published on our Git repos and placed into our customers’ repositories for deployment into their stage and prod environments.
By applying a CD pipeline to each OpenStack service, Mirantis customers gain the ability to update individual services in-place and with greater flexibility than with a monolithic distro file. In many cases upgrades between OpenStack versions can be accomplished with zero workload downtime, resolving a major operational challenge and unlocking access to upstream open source innovation.
Mirantis Cloud Platform provides a suite of open source Operations Support Systems software called StackLight, which helps maximize uptime for on-prem clouds by providing a consolidated control center for Logging, Monitoring, and Alerting (LMA), Capacity Management, and Cloud Health services.
OSS Tooling For Our Team And Yours
Many Mirantis customers rely on us to operate their clouds as an extension of their team. Our staff uses StackLight to manage our customers’ clouds, perform health checks, monitor for issues, and provide insights to our customers’ IT operations teams and executives. Customers that elect to transfer operational control to their own staff can leverage the experience and training they received while Mirantis managed their clouds.
OpenStack for NFVi & VIM
OpenStack has emerged as the leading open source choice of communications service providers for NFVi & VIM as part of their Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) architecture.
Our NFV solution comprises a hardened reference platform compliant with the ETSI-NFV reference architecture, built using 100% open source software. Some of the NFV-centric open source projects we participate in are OpenStack, OPNFV, ETSI NFV ISG, OpenDaylight, ONAP and Open Source MANO.
Working with some of the largest operators in the world, we’ve gained tremendous experience in delivering production clouds for NFV use cases including Edge, Mobile and IoT. Along the way, we’ve developed vendor partnerships and services for easier VNF Onboarding, and innovative technologies such as Virtlet to better address Edge compute requirements.
MCP includes individual VM artifacts for core services, continuously delivered to your on-prem cloud environments via the DriveTrain toolchain.
