SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mirantis announced today the beta program for Mirantis Application Platform, based on the Spinnaker open source project. Mirantis Application Platform helps enterprises run applications in the public cloud, employing the approach pioneered by hyperscalers like Netflix and Google and commonly referred to as cloud-native continuous delivery.
Mirantis Application Platform is a standalone complement to Mirantis' infrastructure management offering based on OpenStack and Kubernetes, called Mirantis Cloud Platform.
“While it's easy to start using public cloud and get immediate benefits as a small team, getting ROI from cloud for a large enterprise requires streamlining the various processes, tools and security requirements across a diverse set of engineering silos," said Adrian Ionel, Mirantis CEO. “Mirantis Application Platform aims to address this challenge, enabling enterprises to maximize cloud ROI at scale through cloud native continuous delivery.”
Mirantis Application Platform will help enterprises moving to AWS or GCE realize the following benefits:
A new beta program for Mirantis Application Platform includes the following services and software:
Mirantis Application Platform is based on Spinnaker, an open source multi-cloud continuous delivery platform originally designed by Netflix and battle-tested by hundreds of teams over millions of cloud deployments. Recently, Google also announced its investment in Spinnaker, focusing on development of native Kubernetes support and integration with GCP. One of the key tenets of Spinnaker is pluggability with third party enterprise tools like CI systems, monitoring frameworks, OSS tools etc.
“Continuous delivery platforms like Spinnaker offer limited value unless properly tuned to customer use cases and integrated with the rest of their enterprise tools,” said Ionel. “A key driver of Mirantis' success has been our ability to complement the product with our unique build-operate-transfer delivery approach."
Mirantis Application Platform will be delivered to beta customers following the same build-operate-transfer methodology Mirantis has been applying to delivery of Mirantis Cloud Platform based on OpenStack and Kubernetes.
Mirantis is a managed open cloud company focused on harnessing open source innovation to help enterprise application owners become free of infrastructure and operations concerns. The company employs a unique build-operate-transfer approach to deliver two distinct products:
