Hybrid cloud infrastructure provider Stratoscale announced the latest version of its namesake platform.
Stratoscale V5 delivers key functionality that brings the company a step closer to its vision of multi-cloud hybrid computing, which aims to break down walls separating enterprise environments and the public cloud, applying the cloud-native paradigm across all environments. It offers operational agility for legacy applications and accelerates application development for new ones.
The public cloud has become the new operating system for consuming resources and advanced services, which are at the foundation of developing and deploying modern enterprise applications.
Many want to tap the same benefits for on-prem computing, with the flexibility to employ a hybrid model or even go multi-cloud – all using the same paradigm. However, it’s hard to achieve these goals without getting locked in.
There are different technology stacks for enterprise and public cloud, which vary for each type of cloud. Even the tools for Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) are cloud-specific.
“Stratoscale removes these barriers by delivering the same technology stack for enterprise and public clouds while supporting multiple public clouds,” explained Ariel Maislos, Stratoscale’s CEO.
Version 4 brought AWS-compatible capability on-prem by adding key cloud functionality and supporting managed services, including databases, object storage, Kubernetes, Hadoop, managed VMs and load balancers.
Now, with V5, Stratoscale adds new components to tie together all aspects of application development from identity and access management, to monitoring and notifications, offering developers the same public cloud experience and advantages.
“Stratoscale V5 powers our multi-cloud hybrid vision by offering a suite of services for evolving cloud computing needs,” said Maislos.
“Healthcare, technology, telecom and financial services companies are modernizing on-prem environments with Stratoscale because they want to develop consistently across different environments, including data centers and edge locations, with the simplicity, ease-of-use and speed of the public cloud, while having the option to leverage the public cloud APIs and Infrastructure-as-Code tools for their on-prem workloads.
“Looking ahead, we are on a march to augment our multi-cloud support by adding managed open source services such as Kafka and Elasticsearch, adding features for our Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) support, and enhancing support for Azure and GCP APIs, to deliver on the full potential of our vision.”
Stratoscale V5 boasts a growing portfolio of offerings, including fine-grained identity management, message busses, notification and DNS services, monitoring, and database replication.
Stratoscale also added new, strategic, managed open source functionality, critical for running cloud-native apps on-prem, including Petabyte scale S3 with CEPH, along with managed Redis and MongoDB services as part of Stratoscale’s rich managed database catalog.
It also introduces sophisticated operations such as site-to-site disaster recovery, including object storage and continuous seamless no downtime upgrades.
