Yesterday, October 21, Mirantis one of the main OpenStack vendors and founding board member of the OpenStack foundation, announced the release and general availability of Mirantis OpenStack, its new OpenStack distribution that is going to deliver a support for multiple hypervisors, multiple operating systems and a multiple plug-in partner framework, allowing its users to adopt the solution preferred, backing three correlated OpenStack projects, such as Fuel, Savanna and Murano.
Mirantis OpenStack distribution on the Havana is planned to be released after November 11, 2013 from the Mirantis web site. A part from related Openstack projects and third party plug-ins, the distribution also incorporate core OpenStack components, aiming to create a single, open source commercially-supported package.
Adrian Ionel, Mirantis CEO, said:
We’ve helped scores of Global 2000 customers stand up the largest OpenStack clouds in production and they’ve helped us design the first easy, flexible, and reliable OpenStack distribution designed for enterprises at scale, we have no larger software portfolio agenda. We are focused only on helping our customers succeed with OpenStack. No other distribution of OpenStack offers customers this range of choice or extensibility in their cloud.
Michael Coté, research director of infrastructure software for 451 Research, declares in Mirantis press relase:
Between service providers considering which cloud platform to deploy and enterprises looking to build out private clouds, I’ve seen nothing but a rising tide of interest in OpenStack over the past year, OpenStack’s foundational nature of flexibility is appealing to the varied needs that these companies have across operating systems, storage, and other infrastructure. At the same time, the market is hungry for easier methods to stand up and manage OpenStack clouds. I’m eager to see the further refining of the various OpenStack distributions over the next year and it’s encouraging see the seasoned experts at Mirantis entering this business.
