Pivotal and Mirantis Forge Partnership to Deliver Cloud Foundry on OpenStack

Mountain View, CA - 11 May 2015

Support for Pivotal Cloud Foundry with Mirantis OpenStack delivers a turn-key, integrated cloud platform based on open technologies

Pivotal® and Mirantis today announced a partnership aimed at integrating and delivering the Cloud Foundry®-based platform-as-a-service on OpenStack®-based cloud infrastructure. Pivotal will support Pivotal Cloud Foundry®, the leading distribution of Cloud Foundry, on Mirantis OpenStack. In addition, Mirantis will now also resell Pivotal Cloud Foundry to customers. This partnership between leaders in the Cloud Foundry and OpenStack ecosystems enables enterprises to confidently invest in a cloud stack built on integrated, open and fully supported technologies.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry is a cloud-native application platform that provides a consistent environment across DevOps scenarios, and enables role-based, self-service application deployment and service lifecycle management. Leveraging OpenStack infrastructure services, Pivotal Cloud Foundry transforms the data center into a self-healing, auto-scaling, application platform.
 
“Our joint customers are seeking open, bleeding-edge technologies to accelerate their software development and bring new products to market faster,” said James Watters, vice president and general manager of the Cloud Platform Group at Pivotal. “Now, with Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Mirantis OpenStack, enterprises across various industries can rapidly deliver cloud-native, scalable applications to their customers with minimal risk and maximum ROI.”
 
Mirantis OpenStack is the OpenStack distribution that is easy to install and operate at scale. Earlier this year, Mirantis joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation to shepherd OpenStack integration with Cloud Foundry. 
 
“Enterprises everywhere are adopting a new generation of tools, processes and platforms to help them compete more effectively,” said Boris Renski, Mirantis CMO and co-founder. “Mirantis and Pivotal have made Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployable on Mirantis OpenStack at the click of a button, powering continuous innovation.”
Customers can install Pivotal Cloud Foundry onto Mirantis OpenStack today using the companies’ joint deployment guide. The companies intend to extend their partnership in the future by adding a full Pivotal Cloud Foundry installation to the OpenStack Murano application catalog. This will allow IT organizations to deploy a complete foundation of Pivotal Cloud Foundry on OpenStack at the click of a button, install stateful services and expose them to running instances of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and deploy other applications from the Murano application catalog directly onto running instances of Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
