Open Source Delivered as a Service

Leading Cloud-Native OSS Frameworks

Manage your cloud using the industry’s leading open-source cloud-native frameworks — OpenStack for VMs, or Kubernetes for containers, or both. Aggregate resource capacity, provide self-service consumption for developers, automate efficiently, manage using policy and multi-tenancy controls. Upstream OpenStack and Kubernetes releases are packaged as a “pure-play” solution, which means you are always compatible with upstream framework APIs, and never locked into a proprietary system.

Fully Integrated, SaaS-managed

Increase time-to-value and reduce total cost of ownership for these cloud-native frameworks by consuming a fully integrated, SaaS managed experience. The frameworks are fully integrated for common virtualization and container platforms, most popular compute, storage and network technologies, enterprise SSO infrastructure and distributed environments. In addition, these frameworks are deployed, monitored, supported and upgraded as SaaS, meaning your IT and DevOps teams can focus on solving core business problems without baby-sitting the management stack.

Run Anywhere: Any Hardware, Any Platform, Any Cloud

Decouple your hybrid cloud from the choice of hardware, OS platforms, or public cloud providers. Platform9 integrates seamlessly with any compute, storage and network infrastructure, using leading virtualization technologies such as KVM (Linux), Docker (Linux) or VMware vSphere. In addition, you are free to use your choice of public cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, or other. Optimize and manage your hybrid cloud across any of these choices, and retain the flexibility to reprioritize in the future.
