Realize Hybrid Cloud Faster

Most enterprises plan to adopt a hybrid cloud model, and may consider a hybrid cloud provider to combine public and private cloud resources or multiple private clouds. Platform9 helps you realize a true solution faster, with lower cost and risk.

Hybrid DevOps Workflows Across Public and Private Cloud

Often, DevOps teams want to build standardized workflows that work consistently across their choice of private and public cloud. By providing industry-standard OpenStack APIs atop private infrastructure, Platform9 makes it easy to implement these workflows using popular DevOps tools such as Scalr, Packer, Vagrant, Terraform, Fog, libcloud, icloud and boto.

As a result, it becomes much easier to automate:

  • Building for hybrid – packaging applications so they can be deployed on any underlying infrastructure.
  • Deploying consistently – regardless of private or public cloud, applications are deployed using common patterns such as provisioning compute capacity, storage volumes, network connectivity and IP address.

Hybrid Cloud with Multiple Private Clouds

Another approach is to use multiple private clouds that may be managed by different cloud service providers and even located in different regions and serving different use cases. This multi-sourcing approach, while complex, may be preferred to reduce vendor dependence or to manage heterogeneous environments such as those resulting from mergers and acquisitions.

Because Platform9 is based on the industry-standard OpenStack cloud platform, it makes such a strategy easier to implement.Specifically:

  • Identity management can be federated to enable single-sign-on and a common tenancy model across these clouds.
  • Application deployment workflows can be automated using the OpenStack API,  provided by multiple private clouds, abstracting multiple private clouds with a single logical OpenStack hybrid cloud.
  • Data and workloads can be easily migrated across these clouds using OpenStack APIs, providing for mobility and re-assignment of workloads across these clouds.

Hybrid Cloud with Multiple Data Centers

Another way to architect this infrastructure is to use geographically distributed sites that are managed as distinct regions, but are integrated into a single cloud experience.

This model can be very effective in:

  • Providing high performance with low latency for real-time or performance-critical systems
  • Improving availability by virtue of having physically independent sites

Platform9 makes it easy to run, eliminating the cost and complexity of managing independent sites separately.
