Netris Ecosystem Solution

Deploy Your Cloud

Leveraging open-source infrastructure software and cost-efficient bare metal hardware.

Build a Cloud on your own terms using:

  • Netris for Cloud-like VPC Networking
  • Harvester for VMs like EC2
  • Rancher for Kubernetes like EKS

AWS, GCP, and Azure are convenient and scalable. However, costs can get prohibitive.

For some SaaS companies, the expenditure on public cloud services has escalated to 50% of their revenue costs, indicating a significant financial impact on their business model.

Reduce cloud costs by up to 90% by harnessing the power of open-source software and bare metal solutions while retaining the agility and flexibility of the cloud.

  • While the public cloud offers convenience, its high costs can be a significant barrier, especially for applications performing substantial data storage, processing, and ingress/egress.
  • In-depth studies in sectors like SaaS, IaaS, AI, and other cloud-intensive industries indicate that opting for a hybrid or private cloud can be 50-90% more cost-efficient than relying on major public cloud providers.
  • In the past, building and operating server and network infrastructure was a complex, costly, and time-consuming endeavor. 
  • Today, as a cloud-native infrastructure approach has become the norm for agile companies, reverting to the intricacies and challenges of traditional infrastructure is not a desirable option.

What’s needed is a solution that brings the benefits of cloud computing to any environment:

  • On-premises
  • Colocation
  • Edge
  • Bare Metal Cloud

Netris helps organizations

Deploy and operate dedicated cloud infrastructures anywhere
Challenge Cloud puzzle


Netris software abstracts away network configuration and operations, providing you with a cloud-like web console, API, and IaC (Infrastructure as Code).

Netris is similar to network software running under the hood of major public cloud providers.



At Netris, we excel at helping businesses establish highly cost-effective, hyper-scalable, and hyper-automated cloud-like networks anywhere.

Our solutions enable you to harness the similar advanced software and hardware technologies utilized by industry giants like AWS, GCP, and Azure for their cloud services.

Leverage Open-Source

Take advantage of using some of the most proven and mature open-source infrastructure software core components.

Lower Traffic Costs (90%)

Leverage bare metal cloud providers, use BGP upstream providers, direct peering, and internet exchange points (IXP) to minimize the network traffic costs by up to 90% compared to AWS.

Proven Stack

Harvester, Rancher, Netris - is a common choice among our SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS customers.


Think of Harvester as your on-premises EC2 (in AWS terms). It's an advanced server virtualization solution tailored for bare metal servers. Harvester incorporates cutting-edge open-source technologies such as Kubernetes, KubeVirt, and Longhorn, offering a modern approach to server virtualization.


Rancher, paralleling AWS's EKS, is a renowned open-source platform for Kubernetes management. It streamlines the deployment and operational aspects of Kubernetes clusters, making Kubernetes more accessible and easier to manage.


The VPC Networking Solution - Netris is akin to AWS's VPC Networking but with a focus on on-premises, colocation/data center, edge, and bare metal environments. As a network management software, Netris simplifies the creation and maintenance of both physical and virtual networks. It's specifically designed to provide a cloud-like VPC networking experience across various platforms.

This solution provides a cloud-native approach, enabling you to take control of your future by constructing and managing your own cloud. By integrating key technologies like Harvester, Rancher, and Netris, you are empowered with the flexibility to set up your cloud infrastructure on any hardware and at any location. This approach offers the advantage of vendor diversity. It firmly places the reins of your cloud environment in your hands, allowing you to steer your digital business toward its desired destiny.

Jason Powers
Senior Director, Product Management at Equinix

Moving from highly consumerized AWS to bare metal, we faced too many moving pieces that we needed to factor in, such as load balancing, firewalling, routing, DHCP, VPN, and high availability. We've tried various solutions, but Netris was the one that enabled us to simplify and abstract away the Networking concern. Netris software and professional services have alleviated a tremendous amount of risk and guesswork related to Network Infrastructure. So our team could entirely focus on our core business - our SaaS product.

We needed EVPN/VXLAN as a scalable foundation for the network. We chose Nvidia Spectrum switches for the best quality/price/performance ratio. We also required Firewalling, Routing, Load Balancing, VPN, NAT, and DHCP. Netris VPC ideally matched our requirements for the comprehensive operation of all aspects of our network.

Netris empowered our early engineering team to launch and operate our cloud infrastructure on our own hardware. We have expanded to three data centers in less than a year, keeping up with the exponential growth of our customer base.

Christina Qi
CEO, Databento

"With Netris we don’t need to worry about deep implementation details -- now we are able to apply a top down approach to our network policies and services, we are able to treat our switches like cattle not pets. Such approach enables us to dynamically repurpose every part of the network and serve our SRE and DevOps teams with the cloud-like experience."
