In the 2000s, VMware vSphere was the dominant hypervisor. Today, 90% of the public cloud runs on Linux-based virtualized infrastructure, and nearly 50% of enterprises leverage non-VMware hypervisors such as Linux/KVM and Hyper-V. In addition, there is growing interest and maturity in containers (especially Docker) as a newer alternative to traditional system virtualization.
As these trends evolve, your private cloud must be able to keep pace and help accelerate innovation with newer technologies – not lock you out from leveraging them.
Platform9 enables this freedom of choice, making it possible by providing a true single pane of glass across these virtualization platforms. Platform9 also enables an easy migration path for vSphere users looking to reduce virtualization licensing costs and mitigate vendor lock-in as they migrate VMware to KVM.
