Twelve reasons
Why you’re struggling at the Edge

Challenges faced by our customers before they transition to Platform9.

Icon: Troubleshoot

Troubleshooting problems at each edge site takes days

Icon: Control Plane

Control plane at each site drives up upgrade and support costs

Icon: One Central Location

No easy way to manage 1000s of sites from one central location

Icon: Different Hardware Software

Different hardware and software at each site is expensive to maintain

Icon: VMS Containers

Managing both VMs and containers doubles ops and license costs

Icon: Unable to Deliver

You are unable to deliver edge apps code, consistently, and faster.

Icon: Unique & Custom Built

Each edge use case is unique and custom-built

Icon: Skyrocketing

Your costs of truck rolls skyrockets as you increase number of locations.

Icon: Wasting Time

Teams are wasting time searching and implementing the right tools.

Icon: Hardware Delivered

From the time hardware is delivered to the time your stack is running takes weeks/months

Icon: Slow-down App

You slow down app delivery due to lack of automated deployment to edge sites

Icon: Network Connection Down

You are unable to continue operating when your network connection goes down

Enterprises have had two paths for edge projects — until now.

There is a third option with better outcomes

Option 1 – Public cloud: NOT designed for edge

Public cloud can get very expensive at scale and their services won’t work on any edge infrastructure you already own.

Option 2 – Traditional software solutions: too complex

Lack of OpEx, skills, and time for managing virtualization, container, & bare metal at each site.

Option 3 – Platform9: just right approach for edge computing

Get public cloud ease-of-use with unified virtualization, containers, and Bare Metal on existing edge infrastructure across thousands of sites.
