(Reviewed on 19 October 2020) "Wonderful platform"

What do you like best?

How much it's easy to add and managed a cluster

What do you dislike?

There isn't the possibility to add a cluster deployed with GKE

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are try to find a good platform to orchestrate your kubernetes infrastructure, Platform9 is the right choice! It's really easy take care of your infrastructure, you can implement alert if any problems occur at your cluster, or node, or pods or deployments or service. Another very important thing is the RBAC for get access to the resource of your account, there are different kind of user that you can create. It's possible create role for a single cluster or binding a role to every cluster! You can define the rules for the alarm and decide the way platform9 will advise you n case of problems. It's possible to add namespaces and storage classes. You can download the Kubeconfig of your cluster with two type of authentication method: by token and by using a password. Very important to me, maybe because i'm from Italy and here we still have a lot of hardware in the factory, is the possibility te deploy a cluster on a bare metal infrastructure. The automatic upgrade of the kubernetes version and of the cluster without downtime for you application is another great thing! The possibility to have a multi-tenancy is fundamental for this kind of platform! Really well done Platform9! Amazing Job!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can managed my cluster from 1 single point, having an all inclusive view on them!

What do you like best?

- Easiest solution to deploy a Kubernetes cluster even if you don't have much experience in cluster deployment , great description for each field

- Helpful documentation

- Great UI for both creating and managing cluster

- Attaching a new node is very easy

- The RBAC can be configured fast and easy

- Offer a Grafana dashboard for your cluster

What do you dislike?

- The token that should be renewed every 24 hours and it could be nice to have options to create token that can't be expired

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our goal is to deploy an Kubernetes cluster for our staging. We use PMK to deploy and manage Kubernetes cluster on VM and integrated it with Gitlab AutoDevOps.

(Reviewed on 20 February 2018) "If You Want OpenStack, You Want a Solid Partner"

What do you like best?

OpenStack is a complex IaaS platform to design and implement. But if you are looking for IaaS on prem, you need to give Platform 9 a shot at being your partner, whether you have OpenStack experience or not. Everyone on their team is top notch, from pre-sales through long term support, Platform 9 has been committed to the success of our on prem platform which has required a significant amount of support to allow our CI/CD pipeline to make our developers' lives easier.

What do you dislike?

The only concern for us is that the control plane is in the cloud (AWS for now) and having multiple calls for certain functions means that the response time for API calls lags quite a bit behind what we see with our on-prem OpenStack platform, which is being retired. We have also had issues with the HA setup, but fixes are promised in the next version. However, if you are using OpenStack like VMWare or Hyper-V where your instances (VMs) and applications rely on the underlying infrastructure for high availability, you are doing it wrong. OpenStack is first and foremost designed for cloud-native applications. Use it as such.

We have also had so configuration bumps along the way but that has largely been due to the expectations of the business based on our on-prem infrastructure and other component integration such as hardware and storage.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Work closely with there engineers to design the right platform for you. They have a wealth of experience and getting the setup correct from the start is key to a successful OpenStack environment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our software deployments used to take weeks from coding to testing and finally to live. Now, it takes just minutes. A robust CI/CD pipeline is a must for this to work, but Platform 9 provides the infrastructure to make that possible. They have also provided expertise to simplify scaling out hypervisors so adding capacity takes far less time than our previous OpenStack environment.
