Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

Mirantis is well suited for someone who doesn't mind spending money but doesn't quite want to commit to a cloud provider like AWS. It is also well suited for small or junior technical teams that don't have the skills, experience, or time to run their own openstack clusters.

Platform9 Managed OpenStack

If you're having OnPremise Infrastructure and you want to use OpenStack in that case Platform9 Managed OpenStack is recommended to use it will cut down all the complexities of setting up and managing OpenStack IaaS. Platform9 also offers setting up OpenStack on Cloud Such as AWS, GCP, and Azure but wouldn't recommend using this kind of offering as Openstack performs well when underneath virtualized infrastructure is backed directly hypervisors not cloud providers.

Cons

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

  • Mirantis OpenStack managed services are expensive. Very expensive for a start-up.
  • I'd personally like to see a little more under the hood details in the status pages.
  • Mirantis could also benefit heavily from a free "light" version that start-ups could use to run their own cloud. Maybe coupled with advertising or some sort of surveys.

Platform9 Managed OpenStack

  • User interface and User experience are not upto the mark. UI needs lots of improvements.
  • We need to do entire setup from the scratch.
  • Nothing as such other than UI Improvements.

Alternatives Considered

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

Mirantis is a managed service. If you're looking for that type of support, infra management, and to relieve yourself of the burden then they are a great option. If you're looking to build your own cloud and save as much money as possible then running openStack yourself is your best option. I would say in the category of OpenStack managed services Mirantis is ahead of Ubuntu (who uses JuJu to manage everything) but behind Rackspace

Return on Investment

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

  • Mirantis did help our business figure out if openstack was right for us.
  • Using Mirantis I felt a bit cheated on understanding the deep technical knowledge of how openstack works. But that being said that is probably a value add more than a detractor for most people.
  • Using Mirantis was considerably cheaper than AWS.
