Platform9 offers a container management service, i.e., a managed service under which Platform9 personnel perform all of the management and maintenance tasks associated with managing a Kubernetes-orchestrated environment. They describe this offering as Kubernetes-as-a-Service (KaaS) under the PMK (Platform Managed Kubernetes) brand, with the tag line “The Power of Public Clouds on Infrastructure of your Choice”.
The PMK service includes the integration, deployment, operation, and support of Kubernetes-orchestrated containers operating on public clouds as well as on premises with a defined, financially-backed service level of 99.99%. The solution is cloud-agnostic, allowing enterprises to leverage containers across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Platform9 also includes a separate add-on managed service for virtual machines which have been migrated to operate on a container architecture (based on the Kubevirt open-source project).
Platform9 builds and delivers a solution which is tightly aligned to upstream open-source, to allow customers portability across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Unlike most container management vendors, Platform9 delivers its solutions as managed service offerings only; there is no container management platform (customer-managed) option. The company includes what it calls “proactive management” (deployment, lifecycle management and 1-click upgrades) in its services. The company provides custom professional services and Kubernetes infrastructure training to support customers. The PMK solution also includes an application catalog offering 1-click deployment of common (and customer built) application blueprints.
