Last week, we announced the availability of OnMetal, API-driven instantly provisioned bare metal servers. Building a great product not only requires a coherent vision but also a collaborative cross functional execution to successfully bring it to market. Through a series of videos, we want to give you a sneak peek into the story behind OnMetal. In today’s video you will hear from the OnMetal team about the motivation behind building it.
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.
Rackspace processes over a million metrics every minute as we monitor the IT infrastructure of hundreds of thousands of customers. That’s a lot of data.
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.
Rackspace today launched managed cloud – a return to our Fanatical Support roots. With two enhanced service levels for public cloud customers; a restructured pricing model; a developer+ program; and new Support SLAs, managed cloud provides our customers managed services and Fanatical Support to enable them to focus on their core business.
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.
Every cloud has to be managed by someone. At Rackspace we offer you the power of the cloud without the pain and expense of managing it yourself, so you can focus on your core business.
Content has always been king on the web, but there has been a dramatic shift in how it rules. Enterprises have moved beyond the simple content management systems (CMS) of yesteryear in favor of adopting robust services to manage the end-to-end visitor experience. These businesses have deeper needs than just scheduling and publishing content. Enterprises now require sophisticated systems with the ability to deliver information to a unique user persona, tailored by geography and presented with consistency across an array of devices.
Today, Rackspace adds support for Microsoft Private Clouds, which gives you more choice in which type of Private Cloud environment powers your business.
