When Accruent acquires a new brand, it’s not a question if the infrastructure will move to Rackspace, it’s a question of when.
A lot has changed in the cloud industry in the five years since Rackspace launched CloudU, its free vendor-neutral cloud education program for IT professionals, business decision-makers and students. One of the most significant changes is how we talk about the cloud. CloudU has taught learners around the world how to “talk the talk” in the cloud computing world. As one learner put it, “[now] we can now tell our PaaS from our IaaS!”
In the world of Big Data, bare metal is king. Many companies are seeking an architecture that allows for full utilization of resources like I/O and throughput, but we often hear from you that when it comes to Big Data you are forced to trade the advantages of cloud (elastic, on-demand, flexible) for the consistency and predictability of bare metal. We don’t think you should have to sacrifice one for the other.
A lot of companies and startups view DevOps as an option for the future. At Zipline Labs, however, we took an unconventional approach to DevOps. We’ve leveraged Rackspace DevOps Automation Service from our inception. We know that a company without a clear vision is a company without a future; and we see our technology as the loudest voice of our vision. Your technology can’t speak on a second-rate platform. We didn’t want to wait and then have to migrate all of our previous work, including any mistakes we made, to a new platform. Instead, we chose to speed development and deployments across our dev, demo, staging and production environments.

Since the launch of OnMetal, you have asked us to expand the base images that we offer. Our goal is to have parity in what we support for our virtual Cloud Servers and OnMetal. Hence, we have been working hard to have other popular Linux distros supported for OnMetal. We are excited to let you know that we now support a substantial number of distros.
