The new offering provides a SaaS management plane and bare metal controller that remotely manages and automates the lifecycle of bare metal to deploy any workload anywhere at a moment’s notice: Kubernetes, databases, HPC, or virtual machines.
According to the company, the solution allows applications to run at full performance without contention combined with the operational simplicity of a public cloud.
SaaS Managed bare metal enables operations teams to build and manage private clouds with a single click, leveraging bare metal orchestration integrated with Platform9 Managed Kubernetes and OpenStack solutions. This allows IT to adopt the bare metal environment to changing dev/test or business needs, from hypervisor to container cluster to database server and any future role.
Further, the solution supports the rapid build out of high performance on-premise bare metal clouds and automated deployment of performance-sensitive workloads directly on physical servers, such as databases, big data, analytics, and AI/ML.
Platform9’s Managed Bare Metal capability combined with virtualization and/or Kubernetes offerings enables fully automated deployment of vRAN or packet core software at tens of thousands of cell tower/remote telco edge locations.
Platform9 Managed Bare Metal is now available.
It can both be purchased as a standalone solution or as fully-integrated with Platform9 Managed Openstack (PMO) and Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK).
