ZeroStack, Inc. has announced it has joined the OpenStack Marketplace for Remotely-Managed Private Clouds, a collection of leading private cloud solutions for enterprises that want the self-service and agility of on-premises cloud without the pain of configuring and managing complex cloud infrastructure. ZeroStack achieves this using Z-Brain — a SaaS-driven operations portal that leverages machine learning combined with on-premises infrastructure to “bring the cloud home.” Enterprise application developers can now rapidly build, test, and deploy on-premises, production-ready, distributed web applications, mobile applications, containerized applications, and big data analytics workloads.
“Remote IT management has been a rapidly-growing trend over the past two years, beginning with cloud-managed Wi-Fi systems and moving into other IT infrastructure areas like security and SD-WAN,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. “Remotely-managed clouds like the ZeroStack Intelligent Cloud Platform deliver the security, performance, and control of private cloud combined with the ease-of-use of public cloud, and they use a SaaS portal to automate provisioning, configuration, monitoring, and management.”
ZeroStack’s implementation of OpenStack leverages machine learning technology in the Z-Brain SaaS portal to eliminate capacity planning, VM sizing, software maintenance, patching, and performance monitoring so IT administrators and software development teams can focus on delivering cloud-native applications.
“ZeroStack’s unique SaaS-driven operational model securely automates remote management and delivers continuous innovation using AI and machine learning technologies, dramatically reducing dependence on human experts,” said Kamesh Pemmaraju, Vice President of Product Management at ZeroStack. “We invite enterprises to compare our self-driving cloud with any other remotely-managed private cloud solution on the market.”
