Platform9 adds Multi-Region & Multi-Hypervisor management into Managed OpenStack

Platform9 solutions leverages a mix of SaaS and on premises Virtual Appliance to provide into supported environments capabilities typical of Cloud Management Platforms (CMPs) such self-service provisioning, monitoring, configuration management, etc.
Yesterday the company announced two new capabilities into its Platform9 Managed OpenStack solution:

  • Geographically distributed infrastructure that allows to aggregate multiple regions in the same management interface
  • Multiple vCenters/hypervisors which enhances hybrid cloud capabilities allowing to manage multiple vCenter servers and KVM hypervisors within a single “private cloud platform”

According to the company, this last feature is also intended to ease the migration from VMware vSphere to KVM, answering the growing demand for cost reduction in the virtualization space.
