Platform9 has announced the release of its Managed KubeVirt (PMK) platform. PMK will provide a unified platform for running virtual machines together with containers. 

Out-of-the-box capabilities include cloud-managed upgrades, automated monitoring for VMs, SR-IOV and OVS-DPDK support, user-friendly SaaS console, bare metal performance, 99.9% update SLA, and more. 

“Traditional virtualization solutions are expensive and managing a virtualization stack in addition to Kubernetes is complex and error-prone,” said Madhura Maskasky, VP of Product at Platform9. “With Platform9 Managed KubeVirt, developers get the best of both worlds without having to port all of your applications to containers or manage two entirely separate stacks. And, as a 100% open-source solution there is no vendor lock-in.”
