Our vision at Nirmata is to provide enterprise DevOps teams with the power of a web-scale data center operating system, but without the heavy lifting and operational complexity

Nirmata, the microservices operations and management company, today announced that it has been selected by Gartner, Inc. as a "Cool Vendor" in the "Cool Vendors in Web-Scale Platforms, 2015" report. The report focuses on vendors that are applying innovative techniques, including caching, event-driven programming, microservices architectures and container management frameworks, to address the demands of application infrastructures that require extreme agility and scalability.

Gartner predicts that by 2017, more than 20% of large organizations will deploy self-contained microservices to increase agility and scalability. In the report, Gartner notes: “MSA (microservices architecture) provides increased flexibility in deployment options and scalability configurations over traditional application packaging methods; however, it also increases an application's complexity. An MSA application may comprise hundreds of microservices that must be deployed and managed separately."

Nirmata helps reduce application delivery times, by providing software that addresses key deployment and operations challenges for cloud-native applications. The Nirmata solution enables enterprise DevOps teams to rapidly deploy, and easily manage microservices, packaged as Docker application containers across public and private cloud environments. The Nirmata solution also helps reduce costs, by efficiently managing the usage of on-demand cloud infrastructure resources across applications and teams.

With Nirmata, software developers can fully automate the operations of complex applications as well as enable auto scaling and recovery of individual microservices. Nirmata’s rich, policy-based orchestration framework provides enterprise IT and platform teams with fine-grained control over how resources are utilized across multiple cloud providers and devices. Nirmata’s unique distributed control plane architecture, provides seamless service registration and discovery, dynamic load-balancing, and programmable routing, hence eliminating the need for several disparate tools. Once deployed, application containers are monitored and managed using built-in analytics and dashboards. Nirmata can also be easily integrated into existing DevOps and continuous delivery pipelines, using the full-featured REST API.

"Our vision at Nirmata is to provide enterprise DevOps teams with the power of a web-scale data center operating system, but without the heavy lifting and operational complexity. Nirmata’s application-centric approach easily integrates with existing enterprise systems, and provides additional value to enable lifecycle automation for containerized applications. We believe that Gartner’s selection of Nirmata validates enterprise adoption of microservices style architectures, and that Nirmata addresses key pain-points to help accelerate the journey", said Jim Bugwadia, Founder and CEO of Nirmata, Inc.
