Mirantis 7 Fuels OpenStack Kilo With Liberty

Rather than just quickly package up the bits from the upstream OpenStack Kilo release, Mirantis has invested time and effort to make sure that its distribution is very stable for production. Mirantis has raised $200 million in funding in a bid to help bring OpenStack to production deployments across organizations around the world.

“This is the release where we spent more effort on quality and resilience than anything else,” Boris Renski, co-founder and CMO of Mirantis, told eWEEK. “Historically, we had been very focused on packing as many features as possible into a release and trying to release as soon as possible, after the upstream OpenStack release.”
