Eliminate Infrastructure Lock-in Mirantis Kubernetes Engine eliminates risk for organizations by providing the f reedom to choose how, when and where to innovate their applications without the fear of technology or inf rastructure lock-in. Organizations can start big or small, with legacy or cloud- native applications, using any application stack on any OS, across any inf rastructure, whether it be on-prem or across multiple clouds and still have the same consistent experience throughout the application lifecycle. Using Mirantis Kubernetes Engine organizations have these capabilities: Multi-OS Support: Availability across certified inf rastructure platforms, including multiple Linux distributions (SLES, CentOS, RHEL, Ubuntu, Oracle Linux) and Windows Server. Multi-Cloud: Organizations are not locked into an underlying inf rastructure and get the greatest flexibility in private and public cloud deployments across all major clouds including OpenStack, AWS and Azure. Orchestration Choice: Mirantis Kubernetes Engine is the only platform that runs both Swarm and Kubernetes simultaneously on the same cluster - so developers do not need to make an orchestration choice. Operations teams have the flexibility to choose orchestrators interchangeably. Networking: Consistent with Mirantis' "batteries included but swappable" model, Mirantis Kubernetes Engine offers integrated secure networking through Project Calico by and in collaboration with Tigera, Mirantis' integration partner for Calico. With this CNI integration, organizations get a fully-supported Kubernetes solution with Project Calico built-in - the only one that works uniformly across the leading Linux OSs and the major cloud providers. Companies with networking plugins that are certified or being certified on Mirantis Kubernetes Engine include: Cisco Contiv, Infoblox and Weaveworks. Storage: Companies with volume plugins that are certified or being certified on Mirantis Kubernetes Engine include: Blockbridge, Dell EMC, Hedvig, HPE/Nimble, NetApp, Nexenta, Portworx, Pure Storage, StorageOS, Veritas, Virtuozzo. Mirantis Kubernetes Engine streamlines managing Kubernetes; however, operations teams also have access to raw Kubernetes components that run atop a full-featured, CNCF-conformant Kubernetes stack. Accordingly, Kubernetes-native APIs, CLIs and interfaces are available to advanced users seeking to fine tune and troubleshoot the orchestrator. 6
