MacStadium, a company that makes Mac private clouds and software-as-a-service, said that its Orka Platform is a great alternative for businesses that want to switch from VMware's vSphere ESXi running macOS on last-generation Intel-based Mac computers to its Orka Platform. The Orka Platform from MacStadium is a complete solution that lets businesses switch from VMware's vSphere ESXi running macOS on Intel-based Mac computers from the last generation to their own private cloud.
The Orka Platform works with Apple chips and gives a smooth alternative to VMware's announcement in October that vSphere ESXi 7.0 will no longer support macOS. The Orka Platform has everything developers need to replace vSphere ESXi workloads on Mac platforms, such as high-performance virtual macOS environments, easy orchestration through RESTful APIs, enterprise-grade performance, and Kubernetes support.
Greg McGraw, co-founder and CEO at MacStadium, said, “Orka Platform represents the perfect tool for application development teams who rely on using virtualized Mac compute and must now move on from VMware.” He added, “MacStadium already has helped leading organizations seamlessly transition to the Orka Platform from VMware. He also said, "Orka Platform supports Apple silicon, and the MacStadium team will assist those making the migration with a customized proof-of-concept environment, as well as all the technical support they require.”
Customers who switch from VMware can get a free, customized proof-of-concept environment as well as technical support from MacStadium. MacStadium's Orka Platform has a number of benefits for businesses that want to move away from VMware's vSphere (ESXi) running macOS.
