Platform9 Managed KubeVirt Offers A Unified Platform To Run VMs Alongside Containers


Platform9 has announced the launch of Platform9 Managed KubeVirt (PMK), the managed KubeVirt solution to offer a unified platform to run virtual machines (VMs) alongside containers.

Platform9 Managed KubeVirt comes with a host of capabilities such as: Cloud-managed upgrades, Automated monitoring for VMs using built-in per cluster Prometheus instance, SR-IOV and OVS-DPDK support for performance-sensitive applications, User-friendly SaaS console for VM operations, VM management capabilities like: Image management, Preset management, and Snapshot management, Enterprise-readiness capabilities like: RBAC, multi-tenancy, and resource utilization quotas, Bare metal performance without paying a penalty for running on top of a hypervisor as well as Guaranteed 99.9% uptime SLA through shared visibility, governance, and control across thousands of locations.

The result is a cloud-native, self-service, declarative model of operations that will be consistent across all workloads – containerized as well as virtualized. End-users are able to leverage Kubernetes benefits such as declarative interfaces, scalability, and automation for your VMs.

“With Platform9 Managed KubeVirt, developers get the best of both worlds without having to port all of your applications to containers or manage two entirely separate stacks. And, as a 100% open-source solution there is no vendor lock-in,” said Madhura Maskasky, VP of Product at Platform9.
