HashiCorp, a standout DevOps technology provider, on Monday introduced its first managed service, complete with a roadmap for delivering one of the industry’s most-popular portfolios of open source automation tools on the leading public clouds.
HashiCorp Cloud Platform for the first time will make HashiCorp’s solutions for provisioning, securing, connecting and running infrastructure available to large customers as a vendor-managed, turnkey service, HashiCorp founder and CTO Mitchell Hashimoto told the company’s ecosystem in a HashiConf keynote.
“Our vision for HCP is really the vision for the company, which is to bridge multi-cloud infrastructure and make it all work seamlessly together,” Hashimoto said during the online event.
The groundbreaking platform was motivated by customers requesting HashiCorp make a greater investment in cloud services that deliver a “pushbutton experience”—essentially delivering HashiCorp’s products through a Software-as-a-Service model, Hashimoto said.
World Wide Technology, one of the industry’s largest services providers, has already seen strong demand for Terraform Cloud and HCS on Azure, HashiCorp’s initial forays into managed cloud offerings.
“From WWT’s perspective, HashiCorp has already established significant market relevance with their cloud automation and security portfolio,” said Jim Melton, WWT Practice Manager for multicloud enablement and integration.
