As service available via the Cloud change, so does the technology that powers it and allows administration of it. Our partners are recognized as the best in helping us stay one step ahead of those changes.
OpenStack® is the most widely deployed open source software for building clouds. OpenStack is for service providers, enterprises, government agencies and academic institutions that want to build public or private clouds. Industries range from IT & telco to SaaS and eCommerce to finance and healthcare.
Enterprises use OpenStack to support rapid deployment of new products, reduce costs and improve internal systems. Service providers use OpenStack to give customers reliable, easily accessible cloud infrastructure resources, supporting technologies including platforms and containers. OpenStack powers clouds for many of the world’s largest brands, including AT&T, Bloomberg, Cisco Webex, Disney, Fidelity and Walmart. Nearly 500 companies and 23,000 individuals across more than 150 countries are supporters of the project.
Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
With Kubernetes, companies are able to quickly and efficiently respond to customer demand:
- Deploy applications quickly and predictably.
- Scale applications on the fly.
- Roll out new features seamlessly.
- Limit hardware usage to required resources only.
Kubernetes’ goal is to foster an ecosystem of components and tools that relieve the burden of running applications in public and private clouds.
