There’s been a growing adoption of Kubernetes by enterprises. It’s a decision that’s helping Fortune 500 organizations modernize their applications and infrastructure to enable their cloud and stay competitive in a digital economy.
Platform9 is doing its part by offering an enterprise-grade, SaaS-managed Kubernetes solution that’s infrastructure agnostic and works across any public cloud or on-premise infrastructure. Several companies recently chose Platform9’s Kubernetes solution to power their digital transformation: Aruba Networks, EBSCO, Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Juniper Networks, and Snapfish.
Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) allows enterprises to run Kubernetes instantly, anywhere, reduce IT operational overhead and accelerate adoption and time to value with containers.
“Some of the use cases and implementations of these new customers are truly pioneering and indicate how the cloud is moving beyond the public cloud data-center to the edge and mixed environments,” says Sirish Raghuram, co-founder and CEO of Platform9. “Aruba Networks is setting a benchmark for adoption of cloud native technologies amongst large enterprises: from refactoring 100 percent of its virtualized workloads with containers, to delivering cloud-native applications to thousands of edge compute devices that are deployed in remote locations, often in intermediately air-gapped environments, using Platform9’s Kubernetes solution. Snapfish, a leading consumer photo platform, is using Managed Kubernetes, along with the open-source Kubernetes-native serverless framework Fission, to improve developer productivity, reduce cost of infrastructure and automate cloud operations. Snapfish, HPE, and Juniper also use Platform9’s hybrid cloud solution to deliver a modern and developer-friendly cloud infrastructure-as-a-service experience across their virtualized workloads as well.
PMK is part of Platform9’s hybrid cloud solution, which enables users to centrally manage VMs, containers and serverless via one platform, with a single pane of glass. This provides enterprises a way to easily support Kubernetes at scale alongside their legacy applications, traditional VMs, and serverless functions, for streamlined operations and improved efficiency across all environments and technology stacks.
