Plug-ins and Drivers
At the source, choice
As the #1 pure-play OpenStack vendor, the Mirantis approach is to help companies adopt OpenStack free from proprietary product portfolio strategies or commercial bundling lock-in. Mirantis OpenStack lets you take full advantage of OpenStack’s inherent philosophy of vendor agnosticism and pluggability. That’s why we offer commercial support for a broad selection of OpenStack plug-ins and drivers, so you can better leverage your existing infrastructure investments.

Support across the expanding ecosystem of OpenStack drivers and plug-ins
OpenStack makes it possible for IT platform suppliers to innovate by making a range of drivers and plug-ins and participate in the open source cloud. However, taking advantage of these plug-ins and getting them operational in real-world IaaS environments often requires arcane expertise, particularly when integrated across multiple services. Consider these advantages:
- OpenStack adopters can take advantage of the drivers and deploy them reliably in production using the open source Fuel project, backed by commercial support and integration within Mirantis OpenStack.
- Juniper, Mellanox, and Inktank have already leveraged the community process and Mirantis’ real-world experience to integrate with Fuel.
- Mirantis solution services can also provide custom development to add or enhance OpenStack support for specific vendors and products.
