Rackspace recently made a strategic investment into Platform9 to power the Rackspace Managed Platform for Kubernetes (MPK). In this episode of Let’s Talk, Sirish Raghuram, Co-Founder and CEO of Platform9, joined us to deep dive into this investment. What does this investment really mean from a technology and marketing perspective? How much influence will Rackspace have on Platform9? Should Platform9 customers worry? What are the areas where these two companies collaborate? We also talked about the changing landscape of the cloud-native world with multi-cloud and distributed clouds, and how this ‘partnership’ fits into this changing dynamics of the market.
