Mirantis Attracts Investments for its OpenStack Integration Software

Mirantis, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, raised !10 million in a second round of Series A financing backed by Ericsson, Red Hat, and SAP Ventures, along with existing investor WestSummit Capital.

Mirantis previously raised $ 10 million in December 2012 from Dell Ventures, Intel Capital, and WestSummit Capital.

Mirantis offers software and services for running production-grade OpenStack clouds. Its solution provides a visual interface as a single control plane for OpenStack clusters and enables automated hardware discovery and network verification. Mirantis also supports the latest Grizzly OpenStack release.

To date, Mirantis’ Fuel tools have been free and are open source under Apache 2.0 license. Later this year, the company plans to release Fuel Enterprise, the commercial grade distribution of Fuel that will be available exclusively to its subscription customers.
