Increasingly, growing businesses face massive scale challenges that often impact the data tier the most. Instead of being focused on delivering new features and capabilities to customers, businesses often experience pain in scaling their infrastructure. Database systems become increasingly difficult to scale and troubleshoot, and require high-level expertise to continuously keep running.
Since we launched the limited availability of OnMetal™ Cloud Servers – single-tenant bare-metal servers provisioned quickly via the cloud – last month, our customers have shown great interest. Some of them are looking to move away from the unpredictable nature of virtualized, multi-tenant environments, while others are intrigued by our promise of “elasticity of the cloud, plus economy of colocation” – particularly the economy side of it.
We’ve heard your feedback: you want to apply preferred configurations across your entire environment, and you want it to be fast. You want to save and iterate on your favored set-up and use it as a template that can be shared. You want to update configurations in mere seconds. Server-side Configuration gives you what you’ve been asking for: configuration files that can be easily updated, shared, and used with automation tools.
Back when Rackspace launched as a five-person startup 15 years ago, hundreds of IT hosting companies were providing access to single-tenant servers over the Internet. What those hosting companies didn’t provide, however, was customer service. Most wouldn’t even answer the phone.
Today, Rackspace adds support for Microsoft Private Clouds, which gives you more choice in which type of Private Cloud environment powers your business.
Later this week, we’re releasing a new feature that allows you to easily attach files directly from your Dropbox into Rackspace Webmail. This means that after a quick “account sync,” all of your Dropbox files are just a click away. And since your recipient is downloading the file from Dropbox, you can send attachments of virtually any size – no need to sweat the (already generous :)) 50MB Rackspace size limit.
I lay awake at night worrying about other people’s data.
Have you ever missed an important instant message when you were out for lunch? Or spent 10 minutes searching emails for a conversation with a colleague only to remember it was over IM? Have you ever thought a conversation would go smoother if only we were face to face?
In the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, companies are hungry for speed and reliability. We frequently hear it from our customers: improved speed and reliability set their businesses apart from their competitors. Swift application performance equips companies to win.
Rackspace President Taylor Rhodes this week took the stage at GigaOm Structure to deliver a keynote on the right (and wrong) way to scale.
