We’re happy to announce that Iron’s suite of products are now publicly available on the Manifold marketplace (see the bottom of this post for a coupon code you’ll want to redeem).
If you haven’t heard of Manifold before, you definitely need to check them out. They’re an application marketplace that lets you provision and manage services without being tied to a specific platform. For those of you familiar with Heroku, you can think of it as their Add-ons marketplace but without being tied to Heroku the platform. Manifold itself was founded by ex-Heroku leadership, so there’s plenty of best practice and real-world experience being brought to the table with their offering.
With Manifold, you have the freedom to deploy your apps wherever you’d like. Tight Terraform and Kubernetes integrations mean you aren’t constrained to a single platform. This is extremely important. You’re future proofing your 3rd party integrations. You’re minimizing the operational expenditure hit you’d normally face when migrating to new infrastructure. This is something we pride ourselves with at Iron as well, and a lot of our customers like having the insurance that if they move off a public cloud elsewhere, we can deploy on-premise and easily move with them.
We’re proud to be a part of the Manifold platform and highly recommend trying it. As part of this release, they’re offering $25 in Manifold credits if you use the coupon code “IRON”.
It’s extremely easy to get started and we definitely think it’s the way developers will be building applications moving forward.
