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.

SUSE OpenStack Cloud (discontinued)

We host many VMs on our data centers for various customers using SUSE OpenStack Cloud. It makes it easier to host them on their own private servers for creating on premises private cloud servers. It does this job very well.

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.

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

SUSE OpenStack Cloud (discontinued)

Both of these have equal capabilities in creating and spawning VMs. Both are opensource and very well suited for customers who are in need of building and maintaining their own private clouds on their own on premises network infrastructures. In comparison, SUSE OpenStack Cloud is little behind in terms of providing faster updates. It also has room for improvement in terms of providing support.

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.

SUSE OpenStack Cloud (discontinued)

  • Being opensource, it is pocket friendly.
  • Few customers are happy with its performance.
  • Private clouds with SUSE OpenStack makes secure private clouds.
