At OpenStack Summit Paris, cloud federation – the ability to easily and seamlessly leverage a multi-cloud environment – was a buzz worthy topic. The story of cloud federation was told though a number of sessions: from Tim Bell from CERN’s keynote presentation to several smaller breakouts. Rackspace and CERN openlab are working together to federate OpenStack clouds. The project has already had a number of successes.
Security – knowing your data and your business are safe – provides peace of mind. That’s why security is an area that we’ve focused on while building RackConnect v3, the latest version of hybrid cloud platform.
As more organisations adopt the cloud, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that many will need to use more than one cloud, and in many cases several clouds, to serve the range of workloads they will run.
It’s 2014 and the cloud has been adopted to some degree by nearly 90 percent of all businesses. That is in part because cloud offerings have evolved. Several years ago cloud meant “public cloud.” Today, new hybrid offerings have emerged—combinations of cloud hosting and dedicated hardware—letting businesses tailor their cloud infrastructure to their business demands.
RackConnect v3, the latest iteration of our hybrid cloud platform, will be available to all new Rackspace customers starting October 23.
Some IT initiatives, such as disaster recovery, are natural fits for cloud computing. Yet it can be challenging to know exactly where to begin when it comes to configuring self-managed recovery plans and replicating virtual machines (VMs) from on-premises to a cloud service provider.
Value Added Resellers, or VARs, have for a long time found marked success in fulfillment of hardware, software and professional services gaps that traditional tier one hardware manufacturers could not or chose not to realize; largely due to inability to scale down to lower volume thresholds.
The third and latest iteration of RackConnect, the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud connectivity solution, is now available to a select group of customers through our Limited Availability program.
