At its core, DevOps is about understanding the end-to-end process of delivering business value and ensuring development and operations are working together to deliver solid business outcomes and optimise this cycle, reducing time to market. It’s a tearing down of silos that will encourage innovation and collaboration to open up new opportunities for businesses looking to find an edge in an aggressive Internet centric market. And according to our recent survey, organizations around the globe are finding real value and real business benefits by adopting DevOps practices.

New business models. Strategic advantage. Market disruption. These game changers are exactly what line-of-business (LOB) leaders want from their IT organizations. And new technology approaches—including cloud, big data, mobile and social—are creating opportunities to improve service delivery, cost and flexibility. But mundane operations tasks have kept IT from leading the way to innovation. Until now.
It used to be that businesses had two options for productivity and collaboration tools: buy a one-off solution and settle for the built-in features and functionality that often fell short, or string together disparate tools from multiple vendors to get all of the features and functionality your business needed. Oh, and whichever route you chose, you had to manage it all yourself or deal with limited support.
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.
When Rackspace launched more than 15 years ago, we sought and got lots of good advice — along with one bit of counsel that we’ve blatantly ignored.
One of the key tenets of the Rackspace Managed Cloud is to offer a level of service that makes Rackspace a true, trusted partner – an extension of your business – and much more than a traditional IT vendor or raw infrastructure provider.
RackConnect v3, the latest iteration of our hybrid cloud platform, will be available to all new Rackspace customers starting October 23.
Is your organization looking to cut costs, reduce deployment time or gain new capabilities that you find challenging to implement with traditional on-premises infrastructure? Then outsourcing IT may be right for you.
Rackspace experts will be out in full force next week at VMworld Europe 2014, as we take to the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona to showcase how Rackspace manages all the things through managed VMware®, managed OpenStack® and Managed Cloud.
