Mirantis launched an update for Mirantis Kubernetes Engine. The container orchestration solution now allows users to deploy and manage containers on Google Cloud Platform.

Mirantis develops multiple solutions for multi-cloud container management. Mirantis Kubernetes Engine provides a central environment in which organizations can deploy Kubernetes and Docker Swarm clusters on the servers of various cloud providers.

The new version of Mirantis Kubernetes Engine is now available. The update introduces support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Users can now deploy, scale and manage Kubernetes and Docker Swarm clusters on GCP infrastructure.

With the addition, Mirantis Kubernetes Engine supports the three largest cloud providers. The solution already allowed users to manage clusters on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, as well as (hosted) bare-metal servers from Equinix Metal.

Mirantis Container Cloud

Mirantis also launched an update for Mirantis Container Cloud (MCC), the most comprehensive solution in the offering. In addition to containers, Mirantis Container Cloud allows users to manage virtual machines on cloud infrastructure and on-premises hardware.

The update improves support for Ceph, an open-source software-defined storage (SDS) solution. According to Mirantis, the release allows users to provision petabytes of storage to Kubernetes clusters with millions of users.

“This is a key part of our plan to help customers spend less time setting up, running, and maintaining their infrastructure and more time building value,” said Shaun O’Meara, field chief technology officer at Mirantis. “We’re solving the problem of persistent storage supporting petabyte-sized clusters on Kubernetes and making it trivial to manage Kubernetes regardless of where it is running.”
