appLariat, provider of the industry’s only enterprise-grade container automation platform, today announced that it has partnered with KMicro, a provider of managed, professional and security services to their enterprise customers. KMicro will now leverage the appLariat Container Automation Platform to enable their enterprise customers to quickly gain cloud native capabilities for their existing applications and deploy and manage them throughout their development lifecycle in the cloud.
KMicro provides managed services, professional services and security solutions to enterprises, including remote monitoring, cloud migration and unified threat management. With extensive experience delivering state of the art technologies and helping clients solve complex issues, KMicro has been able to help organizations adapt to rapidly changing technology environment.
“By adding the appLariat Container Automation Platform to its Cloud Migration and Management service, KMicro will be able to accelerate their customers’ adoption of cloud services and speed the delivery of cloud native capabilities to their existing applications with complete policy-driven control of the environment,” said Mazda Marvasti, CEO, appLariat.
The appLariat Container Automation Platform allows customers to automatically convert existing business applications to containers and deploy them on Amazon, Google, Azure, or VMware vSphere. appLariat silently installs the Kubernetes container orchestrator in these environments and provides policy-based control so that Kubernetes knows when to act in support of the deployed applications from development to production.
“Our enterprise customers rely on us for our expertise in cloud migration and application modernization,” said, Thomas Chamtie, VP, Managed Services, KMicro. “The appLariat Platform will enable us to provide not only fast cloud migration, but new cloud native capabilities to our customer’s applications using the power of containers and the Kubernetes container orchestrator. Our customers will not have to deal with the steep learning curve for container technology to reap the benefits as the appLariat Platform completely abstracts this complexity.”
The partnership includes pre-paid appLariat licenses, joint training, support and co-marketing initiatives and will give KMicro a distinct competitive advantage, allowing its customers to move their applications and services to the cloud and gain new, cloud native capabilities including cloud portability, scalability and resilience.
