Platform9 releases infrastructure agnostic managed Kubernetes service
Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Platform9 just announced the general availability of its Managed Kubernetes service, the industry’s first infrastructure-agnostic, SaaS-managed offering. Unlike legacy software distribution models, Managed Kubernetes is deployed and managed entirely as a SaaS solution, across on-premises and public cloud infrastructure. The company also introduced Fission, a new, open source, serverless framework built on Kubernetes. These offerings feature a drastically simplified operational and consumption model that eliminates the steep learning curve currently associated with Kubernetes, and allow DevOps and IT teams to focus on solving core business problems.
Kubernetes has emerged as the standard for container orchestration and microservices, but projects are often hampered by the prohibitively steep learning curve required to effectively use Kubernetes, and the technical complexity needed to fully integrate and manage production Kubernetes environments. Platform9’s Managed Kubernetes service is fully integrated, truly infrastructure-agnostic and introduces a much faster, more manageable way to leverage Kubernetes. It saves considerable time and capital for DevOps and IT teams, allowing them to integrate across any combination of cloud platform or on-premises infrastructure without re-engineering a single line of code -- or worrying about backend configuration and maintenance.
Fission represents the fastest, simplest way to start developing applications for Kubernetes. It provides a simple, serverless interface to leverage Kubernetes, enabling DevOps and IT teams to write REST-based application backends, event-driven automation or custom application controllers. Instead of taking weeks to realize the value from Kubernetes’ powerful abstractions, developers can now deploy simple REST functions to Kubernetes within hours.
