Volkswagen Group has chosen Mirantis OpenStack as its global standard for next-generation private cloud.
The open source cloud platform is expected to cut IT costs through joint standardization.
It will support internal and consumer-facing applications and will connect people across the Europe’s largest automaker, its dealers and suppliers.
Volkswagen Group will leverage Mirantis OpenStack to power applications in all Volkswagen Group brands.
“As the automotive industry shifts to the service economy, Volkswagen is poised for agile software innovation,” said Mario Müller, Volkswagen VP IT Infrastructure. The system will be fully optimized for Intel platform capabilities.
“The team at Mirantis gives us a robust, hardened distribution, deep technical expertise, a commitment to the OpenStack community, and the ability to drive cloud transformation at Volkswagen. Mirantis OpenStack is the engine that lets Volkswagen’s developers build and deliver software faster.”
Mirantis claimed that it demonstrated a 98 percent execution rate across 64 use cases.
