Hello, world! Welcome to Platform9, where we are re-imagining the private cloud experience.
Platform9’s genesis goes back to our founding team’s experience as early engineers at VMware, our alma mater that disrupted computing infrastructure with some fantastic technology.
Over the years, we came to the realization that managing virtualization infrastructure was hard, and time consuming. Administrators have to not only setup and configure multiple instances of complex management software; they also have to upgrade each of these every time they want critical fixes or new features. In addition, the burden of monitoring their infrastructure falls squarely on the Administrator.
There’s Got to Be a Better Way!
So, we challenged ourselves to rethink the approach, with no constraints other than optimizing for the customer experience.
The result: Platform9, a cloud service that is built to manage enterprise computing infrastructure.
Today, almost 9 months after we founded Platform9, we are pleased to announce the availability of our beta, and invite the community to participate. See for yourself how you can start managing your virtualized infrastructure, in less than 5 minutes. If the user experience is the cake, the icing is the fact that you get the best of OpenStack!
Before co-founding Platform9, Roopak was a technical lead at VMware, where he helped architect and ship major vSphere products: Update Manager and vCloud Director. Before VMware, Roopak was an early engineer at an early stage Mobile computing startup.
Outside of work, Roopak is a fan of audiobooks, likes cooking, following sports, and keeping up with his kids on the soccer field.
