Expands Leadership Bench With CFO, COO and Other Key Executive Hires
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2016) - Mirantis, the pure-play OpenStack company, closed 2015 with record sales, including 127 enterprise customers in production deployments across financial, telecommunications, media, and retail sectors. The company also grew its subscription business by 4x.
"Our outstanding growth is reflective of the huge market opportunity we have in front of us. As AWS continues disrupting the $150 billion cloud infrastructure market, OpenStack will rise up as the only viable open source alternative," said Mirantis CEO, Alex Freedland. "We aim to make Mirantis OpenStack the best OpenStack platform for developing and running cloud applications, and our growing leadership team is critical to this success. We will invest in innovation upstream, building our technology partner programs, and solving key customer needs in OpenStack such as ease of operation."
Mirantis has also expanded its executive team with several key hires:
The expansion of the executive team follows a pivotal year for Mirantis. The company announced a strategic technology and investment collaboration with Intel as part of a $100 million capital infusion with new investor Goldman Sachs and existing investors August Capital, Insight Venture Partners, Ericsson, Sapphire Ventures (formerly SAP Ventures) and WestSummit Capital. Mirantis also launched its Unlocked Technology Partner Program, adding partnerships with CoreOS, EMC, Pivotal and NetApp, and others, and launching a NFV initiative that spurred integrations with Citrix, Metaswitch, Overture Networks, and Palo Alto Networks. Meanwhile, the OpenStack Technical Committee voted to add Fuel, a deployment and management tool for OpenStack that Mirantis open sourced in 2013, as an OpenStack project under Big Tent.
