Mirantis has announced a fully-managed offering deployed on Equinix Metal in 18 global metros. This enables any IT operator or developer to instantly provision, monitor, and lifecycle-manage Kubernetes, Swarm, and OpenStack on interconnected, on-demand infrastructure to provide increased performance and flexibility to customers in tech, finance, media, and other industries.
Mirantis Container Cloud can also easily deploy and manage clusters, on demand, to other infrastructure platforms, including public cloud and private clouds, as well as on Equinix’s fully managed bare metal service, Equinix Metal, on premises in the datacenter and at the edge. All of this leverages Equinix Fabric for private, low-latency global network connectivity to the 10,000 clouds, networks, and enterprises that run their digital infrastructure at Equinix.
Fully-managed by Mirantis, and backed by the deep bench of Mirantis Training and Professional Services, Mirantis Container Cloud users running on Equinix Metal can move swiftly and seamlessly through launch and scaling phases to running in production. In the process, they can reduce years of complex DIY, with steep learning-curves and uncertain returns – adopting a fully cloud-native, cloud-simple solution, grounded in open source, that frees them to innovate and grow, without lock-in.
With this collaboration between Mirantis and Equinix Metal, customers gain: the benefits of simple operations, easy automation, on-demand elasticity, and usage-based billing of moving to public cloud, but with bare metal performance and security – fully-managed by Mirantis all through a single pane of glass and a single API for ops automation.
Mirantis Container Cloud on Equinix Metal is available now through Mirantis and Equinix.
