Our founders – all early VMware engineers – recognized the complexity and costs confronting enterprise Ops and Development teams, as they need to run their applications at scale, across a distributed infrastructure footprint – including public clouds, data centers, and, in recent years, at thousands of edge locations.
Platform9 was founded with the vision that by applying a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) approach to the delivery of Open Source frameworks, you can experience the simplicity of public clouds, while having the freedom to utilize infrastructure anywhere. To support this vision, we created the industry’s first SaaS managed hybrid cloud platform, that runs as a service, and enables you to remotely manage your infrastructure and applications, anywhere.
We provide enterprises with the same experience of the public cloud, but while leveraging a diverse pool of infrastructure: on-premises, in multiple public clouds, or at the edge. Our Managed Kubernetes, Managed Virtualization and Managed Bare Metal products enable you to create a complete stack that can be deployed or redeployed with the simplicity of a few commands. Simply plug-in your different environments to our management plane, and let us do the rest.
Our fully managed service is backed by a 24x7x365 SLA. It eliminates operational complexity and provides all enterprise-grade capabilities (upgrades, HA, scaling, monitoring, etc.) for managing your applications running as containers or VMs.
