Modern SaaS products are increasingly delivered via the cloud, rather than as downloadable, executable programs. However, many potential users of those SaaS products may need that software deployed on-prem, in a private network. Organizations have a variety of reasons for preferring on-prem software, such as security, integration with private tools, and compliance with regulations. The cost of setting up a bespoke on-prem version of a SaaS offering was often prohibitive for both the vendor and potential users.
Replicated leverages the portability of containers to help SaaS vendors ship an on-prem or multi-prem version of their software. Replicated gives SaaS vendors a suite of ready-made components to help install and manage an instance of their software on-prem. Replicated has seen explosive growth in its six-year lifespan: today, 50 of the Fortune 100 companies manage apps with Replicated.
Grant Miller is the Founder and CEO of Replicated. Replicated recently closed a Series B fundraising round to help scale their work in the cloud-native space, including the launch of their Kubernetes-Off-the-Shelf platform. He joins the show today to talk about the next generation of tools on the Replicated platform, how Kubernetes is changing enterprise IT, and why the on-prem software market isn’t going away anytime soon.
