Application Automation Platform Provider Bitnami and Kubernetes Management Platform Provider StackpointCloud Form Partnership
September 8, 2017
Application automation platform provider Bitnami and Kubernetes management platform provider StackPointCloud, Inc. (StackpointCloud) have formed a partnership. Bitnami, which has headquarters in San Francisco, California, United States, was established in 2011. The company’s services enable users to “deploy and maintain software on the platform of their choice, from native installers to cloud images to containers”. Bitnami offers a “catalog of ready-to-run server applications and development environments” and partners with cloud providers that include Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Oracle. Together Bitnami and StackpointCloud will work on a multi-cloud Kubeless serverless solution.
The creator of the Stackpoint.io “universal management platform” for ‘Kubernetes Anywhere’, StackpointCloud has headquarters in Seattle, Washington, United States. The company’s products and services focus on Kubernetes and DevOps tooling. Stackpoint.io enables users to “deploy and manage applications, workloads, Kubernetes, and serverless infrastructure” through popular cloud infrastructure platforms. Through the partnership, StackpointCloud “expands its portfolio of services to include managed serverless computing”. Together the companies will expand their “infrastructure, application and compute options while leveraging an enterprise-class Kubernetes management system”. Developers will be able to choose cloud providers and benefit from a “globally redundant serverless compute” with a scalable serverless infrastructure.
“Bitnami made an early commitment to Kubernetes and we believe that serverless is going to be the next generation of application architecture deployed on Kubernetes,” explained Bitnami’s Senior Director Cloud Technologies, Sebastien Goasguen. “We are excited to be working with the StackPointCloud team, which has been leading k8s cluster provisioning and management on multi-cloud. Our partnership will enable customers to simply deploy the Kubeless Kubernetes-native serverless platform in their Kubernetes clusters.”
