About Us: Platform9: A Better Way to Go Cloud Native

Cloud native is a strategic priority for technology leaders at nearly every company around the world. Going to cloud native is a complex, challenging, but necessary process for businesses and organizations, regardless of size or industry.

As cloud native grows and matures, many enterprises are looking to leverage powerhouse technologies like Kubernetes to accelerate their adoption, but they are faced with a limited set of options. Public cloud Kubernetes is expensive and locks you into their infrastructure and platform services. DIY Kubernetes gives you more infrastructure flexibility and control, but it is challenging and requires operation skills you don’t have.

Platform9 is the third option for your cloud-native future. Platform9 is the only container management and orchestration solution that supports the complete lifecycle of the cloud-native journey on infrastructure anywhere. We combine the flexibility of DIY Kubernetes with the simplicity of public cloud Kubernetes. Platform9 is a better way to go cloud native, paving the way for an open, distributed cloud future.

Innovative enterprises like Juniper, Starbucks, Mavenir, Redfin, Rackspace, and Cloudera achieve 4x faster time-to-market, up to 90% reduction in operational costs, and 99.99% uptime. Platform9 is an inclusive, globally distributed company backed by leading investors.

All this means that the future for Platform9, for our customers, and for our team is about as bright and exciting as it gets. It’s the best time to join our highly collaborative, friendly, and rich learning environment. We have a high-energy start-up culture.
