Using Deployment Services At Rackspace To Quickly Create Cloud Configurations

With the arrival of Deployments in the Control Panel, you now have the ability to easily deploy applications and frameworks to the cloud. This allows developers to focus on their code instead of spending time architecting and setting up their production, test, or development environments. But people want to know, is this service ready for prime time?

Absolutely. In fact, we have been using Deployment Services inside Rackspace for several months now. This solution has enabled our teams to rapidly produce tried-and-true environments for customers to handle high production loads. Learn more about how Rackspace has used Deployment Services internally, including how our Managed Cloud team was able to get a robust customer configuration up in three hours to handle an incredible amount of traffic from Shark Tank, in this video below.

Find our more about Rackspace Deployment Services by reading Ziad’s introduction post. Next week, Ziad talks about having developers in mind while making this service.


About the Author

This is a post written and contributed by Ziad Sawalha.

Ziad Sawalha is a Director in the Product organization at Rackspace. He spends his time creating, designing, coding and evangelizing solutions to customer problems. He was the first PTL for Keystone - the identity service in OpenStack - which he lead through incubation to becoming a core project. He architected Rackspace's Hosted SharePoint offer. And most recently, he helped create and launch the Rackspace Deployments Service.

His work before joining Rackspace included consulting in technology, being CTO at Mi8 Corporation in New York and hopping on and off boats, helicopters and oil rigs in Qatar doing all things technology at Occidental Petroleum.

When he's not persistently thinking through technology issues he's busy juggling being a father to newborn twins and his 4-year-old son, trying to win points as a good husband, playing with Steve the dog or letting the chickens out of the coop (which often docks him points on the "good husband" scale).
