Rackspace Technology has made a strategic investment in Platform9, the SaaS Managed Kubernetes provider for distributed clouds, and launched Rackspace Managed Platform for Kubernetes (MPK). Driven by a shared multicloud vision, both companies will collaborate and deeply align on products, technologies, and go-to-market activities.
Powered by Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) solution, Rackspace MPK provides a single pane of glass for deploying and managing clusters across public and private clouds.
It also helps with a curated platform experience that provides frequently requested infrastructure services for containerized applications. Customers also benefit from specialized support team comprised of Certified Kubernetes Administrators versed in Kubernetes, Platform9, and multicloud.
Sirish Raghuram, CEO of Platform9, said: “Platform9’s SaaS managed Kubernetes, paired with the Rackspace Technology team’s unmatched leadership in managed operations along with Fanatical Experience is a game-changer in distributed Kubernetes management.”
“Our MPK solution is designed for customers of any size who are struggling with the increasingly disparate experience of managing container-based application deployments in a multicloud world,” added Taylor Bird, VP of Technology Strategy, Rackspace Technology.
