2014. Mirantis gets $100M funding to become enterprise OpenStack leader



Commercial OpenStack distribution provider Mirantis announced $100M in Series B funding. OpenStack is an open source platform for deploying infrastructure as a service. And Mirantis wants to be to OpenStack what Red Hat has been to Enterprise Linux. In other words, they want to be the corporate face of the project. And chances are, it’ll need every bit of that money, because it has some pretty stiff competition with the likes of HP, IBM, Cisco and yes, Red Hat, going for a piece of that enterprise OpenStack business. Just a couple of weeks ago, Red Hat announced it would be transitioning from client-server to cloud computing with an emphasis on OpenStack.




2014. Mirantis offers OpenStack-based private cloud as a service



OpenStack - the open cloud platform is quite complicated to install and setup for most companies. Mirantis aims to change that with OpenStack Express, which it claims will let a company, or even an individual without a ton of IT expertise, order and deploy a private OpenStack implementation and pay for it as it’s used. Mirantis is not the only OpenStack private cloud in town. Rackspace is in this space as is HP, Red Hat and others. But Mirantis has a lot of experience deploying OpenStack for customers — it started off as a systems integrator before deciding to offer its own OpenStack distribution.  If it can package that up in a truly easy-to-consume way, that’s a plus.
