FREMONT, CA: MayaData and Platform9 announced a collaboration for the deployment and operation of performance-sensitive stateful workloads on Kubernetes. Through the partnership, users of Platform9's managed Kubernetes offerings can deploy and operate MayaData's Kubera Propel, which provides a validated high-performance enterprise edition of the CNCF project OpenEBS.
