GA of CloudNatix Platform Brings Industry First 'Planet-Scale Cluster Manager' to Market, Solving Problem of Operating Diverse Fleets of Cloud and Kubernetes Deployments
SARATOGA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudNatix, founded and led by the co-creator of Linux containers and pioneers of the Google Borg and Apache Mesos cluster managers, today announced the general availability of its CloudNatix Platform. It is the industry's first Planet-Scale Cluster Management software that's delivered as a service, and it is designed specifically for managing large, distributed, heterogeneous fleets of compute resources as one unit to deliver greater efficiency and performance at lower costs.
The CloudNatix Platform is the first offering that connects to customers' cloud accounts, on-premise datacenter deployments and existing virtual machine (VM) or Kubernetes clusters, then aggregates these resources into pools of compute resources across multiple clusters. The CloudNatix Platform then autopilots capacity optimization and common infrastructure operations, bringing hyperscale infrastructure efficiencies to enterprises worldwide that are wrestling with the challenges of managing a global, diverse fleet of compute resources.
The CloudNatix Platform builds upon the de-facto cluster management gold standard, Kubernetes, extending Kubernetes to manage VMs and containers across multiple clusters as a single, self-optimizing global cluster. The CloudNatix Platform provides line-of-business leadership, DevOps engineers and developers with an interface to observe, understand, operate and automate VM and cloud-native workloads. It delivers this across aggregated sets of multiple cloud and on-premise clusters, dynamically adjusting resources to optimize cloud costs, increase service availability and reduce the toil of managing infrastructure. The CloudNatix Platform launches with a broad set of popular integrations, including AWS EC2 and EKS, Google GCP and GKE, and Azure VMs and AKS.
The CloudNatix Platform can abstract clusters of machines in a datacenter or cloud, pooling resources across clusters so they behave like one giant warehouse-scale global computing system, all while leveraging patent-pending Autopilot technology to automate capacity optimization and bin-packing of resources. This makes it easy for DevOps teams to provision, operate and optimize cloud and cloud-native apps without being bogged down by infrastructure management of a geographically disparate set of clusters. At the same time, it makes more efficient the process of developers building new cloud and cloud-native apps by programmatically writing against an API that spans multiple clusters of resources.
Key Capabilities of the CloudNatix Platform
"Companies need to accelerate time to value in both the public and private clouds," said Munu Gandhi, president and COO, ITsavvy and former vice president of core infrastructure services at Aon Plc. "Unfortunately, they oftentimes struggle with higher costs in the public cloud, decreased performance of their workloads and lack the know-how to drive the required automation. CloudNatix is a platform that addresses all of these challenges and enables their clients to achieve their business outcomes."
"CloudNatix has helped us simplify our Cloud operations from the start by providing a unified efficiency dashboard for operations and cost management," said Toshihiko Kono, managing director, CO-OP Tohoku Japan.
"Most enterprises do not have a sophisticated planet-scale cluster manager like Google has that can manage multiple regions, clusters and even Autopilot workloads for efficiency and availability," said Kenji Kaneda, former co-tech lead of Google BORG and chief architect at CloudNatix. "CloudNatix platform is the next evolution of cluster management that aims to democratize Google-like efficiency and bring it to enterprises."
"Our vision in building CloudNatix was to put multi-cloud infrastructure together with virtual machines and multi cloud-native applications on Autopilot, optimizing costs and reducing human toil," said Somik Behera, founding member & head of products at CloudNatix.
