Mirantis has announced Mirantis Flow, a vendor-agnostic, cloud-native data center-as-a-service aimed at businesses currently using costly, lock-in cloud infrastructure technology to modernize infrastructure while enabling both virtualization and containerization for all application types. Mirantis Flow also simplifies onboarding for businesses just beginning their cloud journey.
According to the company, Flow makes it easy to quickly — in as little as five days — deploy and run a centrally managed, scalable cloud infrastructure providing virtualization and containerization in the datacenter, on public cloud and out to the edge. Flow reduces cost and time-of-development while providing interoperability with public clouds and freeing up resources and investments that can be used to launch new services.
Mirantis Flow: replaces legacy infrastructure software with modern open source software built with cloud-native architecture; reduces required hardware by 50% or more; uses open source software defined storage and networking; and increases automation and frees up staff from routine administration work.
Mirantis Flow integrates many open source technologies in a flexible way and packages those as a subscription service.
Flow can utilize existing computing hardware and includes Mirantis Container Cloud, for providing deployment and lifecycle management of Kubernetes cluster across multiple infrastructure platforms; the Mirantis Kubernetes Engine certified distribution, Mirantis OpenStack (on Kubernetes); Lens Spaces; Mirantis StackLight monitoring and alerting; and OpsCare 24×7 proactive support or OpsCare managed services, which includes deployment.
Mirantis Flow is available immediately and priced at $15,000 per month or $180,000 annually.
