Platform9 joins OpenStack Marketplace

Platform9, the open-source-as-a-service company making cloud infrastructure easy, will now be available in the OpenStack Marketplace´s new category for Remotely Managed Private Cloud, the company said.

The new category features vendors in the OpenStack Marketplace who offer remotely managed private cloud solutions powered by OpenStack.

Platform9´s OpenStack-as-a-service offering enables customers to get up and running with an OpenStack cloud within minutes, and saves time and resources by managing the infrastructure build and deployment process.

Platform9 oversees the entire OpenStack lifecycle, with 24/7 health monitoring, alerting, troubleshooting and upgrades, freeing up time for developers to focus on solving core business problems. Enterprise customers of all sizes now have greater access to the efficiency and reliability of OpenStack remotely managed private cloud.

The OpenStack Marketplace allows users to research and compare products and services from the OpenStack ecosystem, according to criteria such as interoperability tests, API versions, regional availability and hardware requirements.

Whether on-premises, hosted in the service provider´s data center, or across public clouds, PCaaS means that the vendor is responsible for architecting, monitoring, patching and upgrading the OpenStack infrastructure. In turn, enterprises do not have to hire a team to manage the infrastructure behind their firewall. At the same time, they benefit from OpenStack´s open APIs and competitive ecosystem, and experience significant cost savings versus traditional infrastructure. Users can even achieve substantial savings over public cloud as scale increases and workloads stabilize.

Platform9 provides open source-as-a-service for enterprises that need faster and easier ways to manage cloud infrastructure across multiple platforms. Unlike do-it-yourself or legacy solutions, Platform9 delivers best-of-breed cloud infrastructure like OpenStack and Kubernetes as SaaS-managed solutions to reduce cost and time to value, all while avoiding being locked into a single vendor ecosystem.
