Mirantis Raises $10 Million for OpenStack

Mirantis, a start-up based in Mountain View, California with offices in Russia and Ukraine, raised $10 million in venture funding for its OpenStack systems integration work.

Mirantis' goal is to make a vendor-agnostic OpenStack cloud simple and predictable for service providers, SaaS vendors, and enterprises.

Mirantis was an early OpenStack advocate, since the open source project was introduced in 2010 and recently joined Dell and Intel as founding members of the new OpenStack Foundation. Boris Renski, Mirantis co-founder and executive vice president,was elected to the board of the Foundation, which provides leadership to the community and guidance over development efforts.

The company said it will remain true to its focus of providing a vendor-neutral implementation of OpenStack, free of lock-in hooks or proprietary packaging.

The funding came from Dell Ventures, Intel Capital and WestSummit Capital.

“We believe that OpenStack is on its way to becoming a universal control plane for the entire application infrastructure fabric,” observed Adrian Ionel, president and CEO of Mirantis.
