Aruba Networks, EBSCO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Juniper Networks, and Snapfish Select Platform9 Managed Kubernetes to Power their Digital Transformation
Recent wins from large enterprises who have chosen Platform9's solution prove growing adoption of Kubernetes in enterprises, as Fortune 500 organizations modernize their applications and infrastructure in order to enable their cloud journeys and stay competitive in today's digital economy
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Platform9 (https://platform9.com/), the leader in SaaS-managed hybrid cloud, today announced new customers Aruba Networks, EBSCO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Juniper Networks, and Snapfish for its Managed Kubernetes solution (https://platform9.com/managed-kubernetes/).
Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) is the industry's only enterprise-grade, SaaS-managed Kubernetes solution that is infrastructure agnostic, working across any public cloud or on-premises infrastructure. This fully-managed service eliminates the operational complexity in scaling Kubernetes for enterprise workloads by delivering it as a Service -- with deployments, monitoring, upgrades, fault tolerance and troubleshooting -- all handled automatically, and backed by a 24x7x365 SLA.
PMK allows enterprises to run Kubernetes instantly, anywhere, reduce IT operational overhead and accelerate adoption and time to value with containers.
PMK is part of Platform9's hybrid cloud solution, which enables users to centrally manage VMs, containers and serverless under 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.
"We are thrilled with the traction we're seeing amongst Fortune 500 enterprises that have chosen our Managed Kubernetes solution as the core pillar for their digital transformation," said Sirish Raghuram, co-founder and CEO of Platform9. "These customers are demonstrating that large enterprises -- not just the unicorns -- are making enormous strides on the cutting edge of modern IT, enabling Kubernetes at scale - on-premises, at the edge, and in hybrid, mixed environments."
"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," added Raghuram. Aruba Networks is setting a benchmark for adoption of cloud native technologies amongst large enterprises: from refactoring 100% 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.
