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.

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.

Maybe coupled with advertising or some sort of surveys. Read full review 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. Read full review Alternatives Considered

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. Read full review Platform9 simplified scaling in and out hypervisors now adding capacity takes very less time than other OpenStack environments.
