Private Cloud now with Ceph Clusters, EMC and Multi-Region Swift Support

As organizations continue to look to the cloud to help them transform their business, they’re seeking solutions to protect one of their most valuable assets — data. Since we launched our mission has been to give enterprises a production-ready private cloud delivered as it should be — as a service — and designed to support their most demanding workloads.

The latest release of Rackspace Private Cloud Powered by OpenStack, available today worldwide, expands storage and infrastructure options to provide additional high availability and disaster recovery solutions supporting our customers’ critical data needs. Highlights of this release include support for:

  • Multi-region Swift: the capability to deploy a geographically dispersed Swift cluster for disaster recovery,
  • Ceph: a high availability solution for our customers’ block storage via a Ceph cluster – a fully redundant storage system, with no single point of failure,
  • EMC VNX2: extending our EMC support enables customers to store their data on a storage device from a vendor they trust,
  • Rackspace Integrated Systems for storage: faster infrastructure deployment using a fully integrated modular rack of storage and networking built according to Open Compute design principles.

Rackspace Private Cloud Powered by OpenStack is a prescribed and managed private cloud deployment of upstream OpenStack delivered with an unmatched 99.99 percent OpenStack API uptime guarantee.

And because Rackspace Private Cloud is delivered as a service, customers have the flexibility to deploy the infrastructure in their own data centers or hosted at Rackspace, all managed by our OpenStack operational experts and backed by our award-winning, 24x7x365 Fanatical Support, giving our customers all the power of the cloud without the pain of running it.
