Rackspace Announces Fully Managed Red Hat Private Cloud

Rackspace, the self-proclaimed leader in fanatical support, has just announced that they are now providing fully managed private cloud based on the popular Red Hat Linux operating system.
Red Hat can be configured to utilize the OpenStack open source private cloud ecosystem.
Organizations can begin deploying an OpenStack private cloud and extend it into a hybrid cloud, should they choose to do so.
Rackspace says their new fully managed private cloud offering based on Red Hat expands on services that Rackspace currently offers.
Furthermore, Rackspace’s OpenStack deployments are certified by Red Hat, ensuring that any virtual machines that you deploy on your network are hardened with Red Hat’s best practices in mind.
“Rackspace is excited to expand our managed services and expertise to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform,” says Darrin Hanson, VP & GM of OpenStack Private Cloud at Rackspace.
“We help make OpenStack simple by eliminating the complexity and delivering it as-a-service to customers in their data center, a Rackspace data center or in a colocation facility,” adds Hanson.
Rackspace has earned accolades such as being Red Hat’s 2015 North American Partner of the Year. Rackspace also guarantees that organizations who use their OpenStack APIs will get 99.99% service availability.
Businesses that wish to focus on applications, not infrastructure, are encouraged to contact Rackspace to see what types of solutions their technical architects for the challenges that face your business.
One of the biggest barriers for adopting OpenStack into an enterprise is the complexity of the deployment. Rackspace streamlines this process by creating an OpenStack deployment custom tailored for your business.
Whether you deploy Red Hat in a collocated data center or in a private cloud, Rackspace’s Fanatical support will be there to help you along every step of your OpenStack journey.
Red Hat recently wrote about Rackspace’s OpenStack Private Cloud offering on their blog saying:
“Red Hat and Rackspace are expanding their collaboration to provide a solution that blends the stability, added security features, and openness of a Red Hat technology solution, with the agility, efficiency, and expertise of a Rackspace private cloud service offering.”
