Today, CPLANE.ai announced that it has appointed Canonical, Ltd., as a global reseller of CPLANE’s distributed cloud orchestration and software-defined networking products. Canonical provides distribution and support of the open source Ubuntu operating system.
Through the agreement, Canonical will deliver high-performance distributed cloud orchestration to its customers with CPLANE’s Multi-Site Manager (MSM). MSM delivers clouds that scale from a single server for highly-distributed edge clouds to support IoT and edge computing applications, to large data centers with thousands of servers for shared cloud services. Canonical will also provide fully-integrated cloud networking with CPLANE’s Dynamic Virtual Networks – Data Center (DVNd) product. DVNd quickly connects virtual resources within and across multiple clouds to provide secure, end-to-end network connectivity with quality of service.
CPLANE leverages the power and scalability of Canonical’s Ubuntu to deliver unmatched cloud orchestration performance and reliability. Both MSM and DVNd are available through Canonical’s Juju Charms Store, making deployment fast, easy and error free.
“Canonical and CPLANE.ai are redefining how easily and quickly customers can deploy scalable edge cloud infrastructure. The rapid growth of devices at the edge, IoT, smart buildings and smart cities requires the intelligence and automation that Canonical’s Juju Charms and CPLANE.ai’s Multi-Site Manager provide.”, said Brandon Williams, CEO of CPLANE.ai. “Since Canonical and CPLANE.ai already have a history of solving customer challenges together, this agreement just makes it easier for customers to get ahead on the burgeoning market of distributed clouds and Fog computing.”
“CPLANE products will enable Canonical customers to have more flexibility and real solutions in sophisticated geo-distributed environments, whether in large scale cloud environments or distributed multi-million edge IOT scenarios. Adding CPLANE as an official portfolio partner will enable Canonical to better address customers that currently need a single pane of glass for distributed cloud orchestration and networking.” said Matt Akins, Strategic Alliances Director, Canonical.
The combination of Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system with CPLANE’s MSM and DVNd brings a new level of automation and intelligence to distributed cloud orchestration, reducing the complexity and risk of traditional manual deployments.
