Apcera Extends its Hybrid Cloud Ecosystem to Mirantis OpenStack

Apcera, a San Francisco-based start-up developing an IT platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that enables enterprises to securely and transparently control the allocation and consumption of IT resources on premise and in the cloud, has extended its Hybrid Cloud Operating System (HCOS) for Mirantis OpenStack.  This enables OpenStack users to safely and automatically connect with multiple public clouds, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware vSphere, and Google Compute Engine (GCE). Applications can be shared, moved and governed consistently and securely across all clouds, from a single technology platform. Apcera’s policy-driven HCOS delivers enhanced security and workload mobility for OpenStack by extending fine-grained policy and strong governance functionality across all cloud environments.

Additionally, Apcera will be included in the OpenStack Community Application Catalog.

“From our inception, we have strongly supported the open source community,” said Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera. “As adoption of the hybrid cloud takes hold, it becomes even more critical that open source solutions have the same level of security and governance offered by traditional commercial solutions. By partnering with Mirantis, the leader in OpenStack technology, we are able to deliver the most secure platform for OpenStack users and create a bridge to extend OpenStack interoperability across the public cloud.”

“Many enterprises today want to combine the power of OpenStack with other public and private clouds,” said Mirantis CEO Adrian Ionel. “By certifying Apcera with Mirantis OpenStack, our customers have this ability at their fingertips, backed with the ubiquitous policy and governance enabled by Apcera’s Hybrid Cloud Operating System.”
