Platform9 unveils High Availability for OpenStack users
Supporting both traditional and cloud-native workloads, Platform9 will showcase its industry-first capability at the upcoming VMworld
Platform9 have announced the launch of a new High Availability capability for OpenStack users.
Set to be showcased at the upcoming VMworld, running from 28 August to 1 September, 2016, in Las Vegas, US, the platform supports both traditional and cloud-native workloads.
Commenting on the launch, Madhura Maskasky, co-founder and vice president of product at Platform9, shared: "High Availability is fundamental to enterprise customers looking to run production workloads on OpenStack. Given the massive demand we've seen from enterprise customers, we are excited to provide a solution with the industry's first High Availability capability for both traditional and scale-out workloads."
"This new capability makes it possible for customers to migrate to OpenStack for mission-critical workloads without sacrificing the powerful, enterprise-grade High Availability capabilities they've come to expect."
Platform9's High Availability capability is designed to automatically configure lieveness detection amongst servers that are in availability zones. The new design helps to mitigate damage and lost workloads when servers fail in these areas.
The High Availability capability is available in Platform9 Managed OpenStack Enterprise Edition.
Rob Horstmann, manager of Technical Operations at Moz, Inc, said: "For production workloads, High Availability is a critical capability and we have had to run those workloads on VMware vSphere thus far. With this update to Platform9 Managed OpenStack, we can now use OpenStack and KVM for all workloads."
