Mirantis OpenStack and Tectonic Make Web-Scale Containers Manageable, Agile and Portable
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwired – Aug 6, 2015) – Mirantis, the pure-play OpenStack company, and CoreOS, today announced the integration of Mirantis OpenStack, the OpenStack distribution that is easy to install and operate at scale, with Tectonic, the first commercial platform for Kubernetes 1.0. The joint effort brings enterprise-grade support and manageability to companies looking to combine the agility of OpenStack with the portability of Kubernetes and container technologies.
"Mirantis and CoreOS share a vision of helping DevOps teams create better software faster. Putting Kubernetes on top of OpenStack gives them flexibility in how they build their applications, letting them innovate quickly," said Mirantis CMO and co-founder, Boris Renski.
"We are thrilled to be working with Google and CoreOS, and look forward to hearing more from them about how enterprises can leverage containers with OpenStack at OpenStack Silicon Valley." "OpenStack is quickly becoming the preferred open source cloud platform for a range of technologies — VMs, containers, bare metal and whatever comes next. Project contributors like CoreOS, Mirantis and Google are helping the community offer enterprises a cohesive open source cloud solution powered by OpenStack," said Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation.
Kubernetes is an open source system for managing Google-scale containerized applications across multiple hosts, providing basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications. It is lightweight, portable, extensible and self-healing. CoreOS' Tectonic combines Kubernetes and the CoreOS software portfolio in an integrated package, including a management console for workflows and dashboards, an integrated registry to build and share Linux containers, and additional tools to automate deployment and customize rolling updates. Tectonic runs on-premises or in public clouds.
"Now that Kubernetes is production-ready, companies using Tectonic and Mirantis OpenStack can have a Google-like infrastructure at their fingertips," said CoreOS CEO, Alex Polvi. "Mirantis possesses a deep understanding of open source software and their commitment to the open source ecosystem around OpenStack is second to none. It was natural to work with Mirantis to help customers see the benefits of Kubernetes on OpenStack." CoreOS' Tectonic, as a platform for OpenStack-based container management, will provide enterprise-grade support, ensuring stability from the infrastructure layer all the way to the container.
Mirantis is the pure play OpenStack company. Mirantis delivers all the software, services, training, and support needed for running OpenStack. More customers rely on Mirantis than any other company to get to production deployment of OpenStack at scale. Mirantis is among the top three companies worldwide in contributing open source software to OpenStack, and has helped build and deploy some of the largest OpenStack clouds in the world, at companies such as Cisco, Comcast, Ericsson, NASA, Samsung and Symantec. Mirantis is venture-backed by Insight Venture Partners, August Capital, Ericsson, Intel Capital, Sapphire Ventures and WestSummit Capital, with headquarters in Mountain View, California.
