Mirantis, the open cloud company has announced Mirantis Flow, a vendor-agnostic, cloud-native data center-as-a-service aimed at businesses currently using costly, lock-in cloud infrastructure technology. It aims to modernise infrastructure while enabling both virtualization and containerisation for all application types. Mirantis Flow also simplifies onboarding for businesses just beginning their cloud journey.
It said that Flow makes it easy to quickly in about five days to deploy and run a centrally managed, scalable cloud infrastructure providing virtualisation and containerization in the data center, on public cloud and out to the edge.
.Adrian Ionel, CEO and co-founder of Mirantis added, “As more businesses pursue digital transformation, enterprise data centers are challenged to deliver a true cloud experience to their users while also reducing costs. Until now, cloud-native was sold and marketed as piece parts for enterprises to assemble. Mirantis has already helped hundreds of today’s tech savvy companies, including Booking.com, Reliance Jio, Netscope, and Societe Generale, implement an open source, cloud-native approach to infrastructure.
He added, “For the first time, Flow takes that software, knowledge, and support expertise and packages it up for easy deployment, enabling enterprises to replace their legacy infrastructure, or even begin their cloud journey, with an open source, cloud-native data center that supports their most valuable use cases and brings a stream of innovations to developers and application owners — at significantly less cost.”
Mirantis Flow replaces legacy infrastructure software with modern open source software built with cloud-native architecture. It said that it reduces required hardware by 50 per cent or more. It uses open source software defined storage and networking and increasesa utomation and frees up staff from routine administration work.
The company said, “Mirantis Flow integrates many open source technologies in a flexible way and packages those as a subscription service. Flow can utilize existing computing hardware and includes Mirantis Container Cloud, for providing deployment and lifecycle management of Kubernetes cluster across multiple infrastructure platforms; the Mirantis Kubernetes Engine certified distribution, Mirantis OpenStack (on Kubernetes); Lens Spaces; Mirantis StackLight monitoring and alerting; and OpsCare 24×7 proactive support or OpsCare managed services, which includes deployment.”
