Mirantis has signed a collaboration contract with distribution partner Nuaware. As a specialist Dev/Sec/Ops, cloud, and cloud-native technologies distributor, Nuaware will help Mirantis extend its reach by delivering Lens – a Kubernetes platform – to developers worldwide and help them focus on writing the most valuable code possible.
Part of specialist cybersecurity services group Exclusive Networks, Nuaware is a hyper-growth, born-in-the-cloud IT solutions distributor. The company provides high-value services to build, secure and operate clients’ technology stack. Nuaware has in-depth understanding of this highly technical industry, giving it the ability to serve clients in more than 150 countries on five continents.
Mirantis recently launched Lens Pro with features for enterprise users to help simplify the developer experience working with Kubernetes. Mirantis added on-demand live support, easy setup for container image scanning and vulnerability reporting, and a built-in local Kubernetes cluster.
“Nuaware can help us extend our reach to new users in every corner of the world,” said Miska Kaipiainen, Vice President of Product Engineering at Mirantis. “Just last week, we introduced Lens Pro with additional features for enterprise users that build on the enormous popularity of our open-source version of Lens.”
By taking away Kubernetes’ complexity, Lens would make it easier for developers to adopt it. By supporting any certified Kubernetes distribution on any infrastructure, Lens enables users to manage, create, debug, monitor, and troubleshoot their workloads across numerous clusters in real-time. The Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems are all compatible with the “user-friendly” graphical user interface of the Lens desktop application.
“Lens Pro is a welcome addition to our portfolio of market-leading technologies for our worldwide network of customers and partners,” said Luke Hasty, Managing Director at Nuaware. “This represents the global expansion of our partnership between Nuaware and Mirantis.”
Mirantis’ Lens offering is a desktop program that would greatly boost productivity for individuals with more experience while lowering the entrance barrier for those just getting started with Kubernetes. The open-source version of Lens now has more than 650,000 users and more than 18,500 GitHub stars. For Kubernetes, Lens is one of the most often used integrated development environments (IDEs).
Exclusive Networks has a distinctive ‘local sale, global scale’ business model that would combine the extreme focus and value of local independents with the scale and service delivery of a single worldwide IT distribution powerhouse. Exclusive Networks has offices in 40 countries and the ability to serve clients in over 150 countries across five continents.
