QxStack Mirantis Unlocked Appliance for Cloud Native Applications

A Turnkey Appliance to Simplify OpenStack Clouds

OpenStack has emerged as the leading open cloud platform that not only enables large scale production-ready clouds but also drives down the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) associated with on premises deployments.

QCT and Mirantis are bringing the best of cloud and converged infrastructure together to simplify OpenStack deployments and reduce the time-to-value of your private cloud, allowing you to focus on your business and your applications. Together our goal is to ensure the success of your OpenStack cloud, enabling you to achieve Agile IT.

A Turnkey OpenStack Rack-based Appliance

The QCT Mirantis Unlocked Appliance is a turnkey rack-based appliance designed to enable PaaS in an agile development process for a Dev/Test organization as well as the production IaaS used for the deployment of container-based applications.

By integrating the latest QCT servers and switches, together with Mirantis OpenStack, the guesswork and integration are eliminated from your deployment.
