Mirantis acquires web application delivery company for Kubernetes amazee.io


Mirantis announced that it has acquired amazee.io, a global web application delivery company for Kubernetes.

amazee.io is the only ZeroOps application delivery hub designed by developers to free them from the work of deploying, migrating and operating in the cloud. The company was founded in 2017 to improve the developer experience by fully automating application and infrastructure operations and integration tasks for app makers.

amazee.io is the creator of the Lagoon open source project, an application delivery platform, available on GitHub under Apache License 2.0. Lagoon is a cloud-native platform for deploying, managing, security, and operating applications that significantly reduces the burden on developers in terms of infrastructure management.

For organizations that already have Kubernetes up and running, there is Lagoon-as-a-Service (LaaS) which allows teams to install the Lagoon remote agent into their existing Kubernetes clusters, connect them to the Lagoon Core managed by amazee.io and deploy them correctly. a way. This removes the need to install and manage a Lagoon Core and allows teams to focus on what they are good at: building great apps.

Previously, Mirantis acquired Docker Enterprise in 2019 and immediately integrated it into its Kubernetes platform. Nearly 100 new customers have chosen Mirantis container technology to support their digital transformation initiatives and customer satisfaction has skyrocketed.

Shortly after the Docker deal, Mirantis doubled down on its longstanding commitment to open source, hiring the staff behind Kontena – and invested heavily in Lens and k0s development. Kontena’s technology has been integrated into Mirantis Kubernetes Engine and Mirantis Container Runtime and today Lens is the largest and most advanced Kubernetes platform in the world with a community of over 650,000 Kubernetes users and 17,000 stars on GitHub.

Adrian Ionel, Co-Founder and CEO, Mirantis
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 easier and faster to ship and run containerized applications. It seamlessly integrates with our Kubernetes and Lens platform and increases developer productivity on any cloud.

Franz Karlsberger, CEO, amazee.io
Developers today face increasingly complex infrastructures, increased demand to do more, often with less, and all with fewer resources than ever before. We designed amazee.io as a developer-centric software delivery hub for modern apps – abstracting infrastructure so developers can be more successful. Being part of Mirantis will allow 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.
