In this episode I talk with Sirish Raghuram, , CEO and Co-Founder at Platform9. Platform9 provides SaaS based Managed Kubernetes, Openstack and Serverless for public, private and edge platforms. They deliver cloud-native technologies with SaaS simplicity that are easy to install, operate and scale, while supporting broad cloud capabilities that run on any infrastructure. Sirish and I talk about his early days working as one of the early VMware Engineers and how the paradigm of what cloud was lit the fire to join up with his co-founders and start Platform9. We discuss VMware Cloud Director, the early days of OpenStack, Docker and Kubernetes and how the latter won the container manager race, has matured, but is not quiet there yet in terms of mass adoption.
Platform9 was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Mountain View, CA, USA.
