Mirantis Unlocked encompasses Mirantis’ technology partnerships with market-leading companies such as Citrix, Juniper Networks, VMware, Brocade, and EMC; and innovative technologies from Nuage Networks, SolidFire, Maxta, Avi Networks, Metaswitch Networks, Cumulus Networks, BigSwitch, ActiveState, Midokura, and ScalR.
The debut of Mirantis Unlocked follows recent integrations with Oracle Database, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Stackato Cloud Foundry, EMC, Google Kubernetes, Juniper Networks Contrail™ Networking, and others.
According to Mirantis, Mirantis Unlocked partners gain go-to-market support and pre-validation and certification with its OpenStack distribution Mirantis OpenStack. Beyond simple API interoperability and infrastructure driver testing, infrastructure Unlocked providers are able to develop, certify and document a plugin for the Fuel OpenStack installer, automating customer deployment and configuration experience. Similarly, Mirantis Unlocked partners focused on providing developer platforms and tooling can integrate with OpenStack via the Murano application catalog, added Mirantis.
