Mirantis, freeing developers to create their most valuable code, today announced the latest version of Mirantis OpenStack on Kubernetes (MOSK), which enhances OpenStack security and improves the user experience.
OpenStack is the world's leading open source private cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) framework, providing a feature-rich, mature environment for hosting virtual machines, networks, and storage. MOSK brings virtualized infrastructure into the cloud native world, providing an easy-to-use virtualization platform built on Kubernetes for optimal flexibility and resilience.

Additional noteworthy features include the following:
Full support for Tungsten Fabric, enabling users to take advantage of advanced networking functions, including load balancing with the OpenStack Octavia load balancer.
Improved user experience, with tutorials and a sample application to assist with onboarding.
Customization options for OpenStack deployments for more technical users, enabling them to tailor the platform to their specific needs and preferences and make it more efficient and effective for their particular use cases.
