AppFormix, a provider of infrastructure performance optimization for cloud-based data centers, has announced a partnership with Mirantis, a pure-play OpenStack cloud hosting company. As a Mirantis Unlocked Partner, AppFormix will integrate with Mirantis OpenStack to bring analytics and control of resource utilization to OpenStack based private cloud infrastructure.
As AppFormix provides enterprises with monitoring and control capabilities for public and private cloud infrastructure, the integration would enable OpenStack operators to improve the efficiency of their infrastructure while ensuring predictable application performance.
“Developers are adopting a new generation of tools that will help them build web applications quickly and easily,” said Mirantis co-founder and chairman, Alex Freedland. “To keep up with this wave of innovation, operators need to measure application and infrastructure resources together in real-time. Integrating Mirantis OpenStack with AppFormix will solve this problem for the operator, building diagnostics into OpenStack and making it easy to fine-tune application performance.”
With AppFormix on Mirantis OpenStack, companies can:
- Analyze how applications use sever, storage, and networking resources in real time
- Turn the ‘Dev-Ops disconnect’ into Dev-Ops collaboration with tools and APIs that cut across traditional silos
- Set policies to control resource allocation and eliminate bottlenecks
AppFormix software complements Mirantis OpenStack with utilization analytics designed to discover and eliminate bottlenecks across I/O resources, as well as provide data-driven capacity planning for infrastructure. No matter if applications are running in Virtual Machines, or containers, either on-premise or in the public cloud, IT managers would be able to designate exactly what resources an application can use for more efficient infrastructure use and a more consistent performing application.
“The past few years have seen an increase in infrastructure utilization but there is still much more to be done to fully optimize how enterprises run on shared infrastructure,” said Sumeet Singh, founder and CEO of AppFormix. “The AppFormix software is versatile enough to analyze and optimize the performance of Virtual Machines or Docker containers operating in your OpenStack based private cloud,” “Mirantis leads the ecosystem in OpenStack deployments so we’re thrilled to bring the AppFormix solution to Mirantis OpenStack to ensure all virtualized deployments perform consistently.”
Mirantis has helped build and deploy some of the largest OpenStack cloud hosting environments in the world, at companies such as Cisco, Comcast, Ericsson, Expedia, NASA, Samsung and Symantec. Mirantis is venture-backed by Insight Venture Partners, August Capital, Ericsson, Intel Capital, Sapphire Ventures and WestSummit Capital, with headquarters in Mountain View, California.
