Mirantis has acquired amazee.io, the ZeroOps application delivery hub built by developers to free them from cloud deployment, migrations, and operations.
The company was founded in 2017 to improve the developer experience by fully automating application and infrastructure operations and integration tasks for application builders.
amazee.io is the creator of the open source project Lagoon, an application delivery platform, available on GitHub under Apache License 2.0. Lagoon is a cloud-native platform for the deployment, management, security and operation of applications that reduces the burden on developers when dealing with infrastructure.
“Today’s developers face increasingly complex infrastructures, a greater demand to do more, often with less and all with fewer resources than ever before,” said Franz Karlsberger, CEO of amazee.io. “We built amazee.io as a developer-centric hub for delivering software for modern applications, removing infrastructure so developers can be more successful. Being part of Mirantis allows us to accelerate our product roadmap. Customers can expect us to invest even more in research and development and add support for all major web technologies and frameworks.”
“amazee.io and Lagoon are the easiest way for developers to take advantage of the latest cloud services without having to be cloud or Kubernetes experts. No other technology makes it so easy and fast to ship and run containerized applications,” said Adrian Ionel, co-founder and CEO of Mirantis. “It fits seamlessly into our Kubernetes and Lens platform and increases developer productivity in any cloud. Our customers and our 650,000 Lens users will benefit immediately.”
“Lagoon has saved us a lot of time every day by allowing us to develop and test many different industries at once by providing us with a fast and easy way to build and tear down individual test environments,” says Corné de Leeuw , director, development at Smartsheet. “The ability to create these environments with very little effort directly from branches in our repository has reduced operational effort and allows our developers and QA (quality assurance) engineers to work side by side on a number of different functions without negative impact. together.”
“It seems very wrong that today most developers have to go through the pain of learning Kubernetes before they can even implement a single line of code in Kubernetes. We’ve taken that pain away,” said Michael Schmid, chief technology officer, amazee.io. “The trick behind Lagoon is that it runs in Kubernetes and works with popular tools such as Helm, Prometheus, Grafana and many others, while requiring no knowledge of Kubernetes for developers.”
For organizations already using Kubernetes, there is Lagoon-as-a-Service (LaaS) that allows teams to install the Lagoon Remote Agent in their existing Kubernetes clusters, connect it to the amazee.io managed Lagoon Core and directly can implement. away. This eliminates the need to install and manage a Lagoon Core and allows teams to focus on what they do best: developing applications.
Previously, Mirantis acquired Docker Enterprise in 2019 and integrated it into its Kubernetes platform. Nearly 100 new customers chose Mirantis container technology to support their digital transformation initiatives and customer satisfaction soared.
Shortly after the Docker agreement, Mirantis redoubled its commitment to open source, hiring the staff behind Kontena and investing in Lens and the development of k0s. Kontena technology is integrated into Mirantis Kubernetes Engine and Mirantis Container Runtime.
