In today’s market customers take Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for granted. It used to be that a customer would have to go to a software vendor and either buy bundled software that they would then bring back to their data center to install, or purchase it from a third-party implementor and have them install it for them. How times have changed in the era of managed services. Today, we EXPECT SaaS. And with good reason.
Revolutionizing the Enterprise Data Center with a SaaS Approach
SaaS experience was the corner stone of what we do – from day 1.
Platform9 is the industry’s only turn-key SaaS-managed solution that enables IT Ops in large enterprises to “bring their own infrastructure” and be up and running within minutes. Essentially, we bring the capabilities of the public cloud leaders to complex, hybrid environments. This enables IT Ops to drive digital transformation in their organization – rather than being the nay sayers, struggling to keep up with the business demands.
Platform9 offers of a self-service, simple, unified experience for managing infrastructure across ANY environment and ANY technology stack –– spanning on premises data centers, bare metal, Private and Public Clouds, Containers, Serverless, and more.
We not only allow your developers to provision on-demand, but we also take the pain out of managing large-scale environments — with deployments, monitoring, maintenance, scaling and disaster recovery – all handled automatically.
We’re proud to have revolutionize how IT manages their data centers today. By providing a truly unified cloud experience – with a single UI, single pane of glass, shared visibility and on-demand experience across the board – we allow IT to enable developers, streamline operations and reduce data center costs and complexity.
Our focus on SaaS capabilities doesn’t stop at the product itself and the experience our users get with managing their environments. Thanks to our reliance on self-service capabilities and automation, we’ve expanded this SaaS approach to two additional unique aspects of Software-as-a-Service: Customer Success and Customer Support.
Let’s see how these capabilities give our users even more peace of mind managing mission-critical enterprise workloads.

Seamless Support: We fix it, before you even know something is off
With Platform9’s SaaS model, we have fundamentally transformed our customers’ support experience. Unlike the older way of providing support that has always been reactive – addressing issues in an on-going daily fire-drill, causing disruptions to your teams and business operations – our way is different.
