In a video interview, Sirish Raghuram, co-founder and CEO at Platform9 details what his company is all about and where it is headed.
“Platform9’s story is we host the OpenStack controller in our infrastructure and it works with a company’s on-premises infrastructure,” Raghuram explained. “The on-premises infrastructure is then transformed by Platform9 into a private cloud managed by OpenStack.”
Raghuram added that the fact that Platform9 hosts the OpenStack controller as a SaaS solution makes it easy and elegant to extend it to other infrastructures, including those that are public. That said he noted that Platform9 doesn’t yet support the public cloud, but that might happen in the future.
