Mirantis Releases Latest OpenStack Distribution With Powerful Plug-In Architecture

Mirantis made generally available on Thursday a new version of its popular OpenStack distribution, one that extends the latest release of the groundbreaking open-source cloud operating system with a number of features, including a powerful installer tool.

Mirantis 6.0 builds off Juno, the tenth and most current version of OpenStack introduced in October. Juno should prove the most stable OpenStack release ever brought to market, Boris Renski, Mirantis' co-founder and CMO, told CRN.

The pure-play OpenStack developer has added powerful functionality to 6.0, including Fuel, an installer that enables third-party infrastructure vendors to build plug-ins exposing their solutions directly to OpenStack users at installation, without the need for drivers.

"Anybody downloading can see anyone who built plugs-in and take advantage of their solution right out of the box. This is a big deal for us and important for us -- important because a lot of OpenStack momentum is coming from the vendor ecosystem" developing around the cloud platform, Renski told CRN.

Mirantis, a neighbor of Google in Mountain View, Calif., was born as an OpenStack systems integrator.

Because the company approaches releases in an unorthodox way, withholding the bulk of new features from tech previews, Thursday's general release is the first showcase for Fuel, and much of the advanced functionality introduced with 6.0.
