Hitachi Vantara, a subsidiary of Hitachi which helps companies create hardware and software has announced that it has acquired Pittsburgh based-Containership. Containership was established in 2015 and is considered as one of the most reliable platforms for enabling the deployment and management of multicloudKubernetes infrastructure.
Containership presents to its clients an intuitive dashboard that helps enterprises gain flexibility to operate public cloud, private cloud, and on-premise environments. The company was having difficulty monetizing its Kubernetes work fast and was having a hard time. As of now, the company has given up on its specialty – managing multicloudKubernetes deployments.
On a blog post, Bobby Soni, Chief Operating Officer of Digital Infrastructure Business Unit, Hitachi Vantara said: “Today, I can share that Hitachi Vantara has acquired the assets of Kubernetes start-up Containership. Containership enables customers to easily deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters and containerized applications in public cloud, private cloud, and on-premise environments.”
Hitachi Vantara is quite pleased with the acquisition of Containership and plans to work with the Kubernetes to integrate its technology across its portfolio.
If we go by Gartner’s forecasts, over 70% of global organizations will be running more than two containerized applications in production. In such a scenario, the acquisition of Containership could be a good step forward for Hitachi Vantara.
