About the Customer
SunPower is a leading solar technology and energy service provider that produces the most efficient solar cells and panels on the market today. The company was founded in 1985 by Dr. Richard Swanson, an electrical engineering professor at Stanford who was among the first to explore solar technology. Over several decades, what began as a manufacturing company has evolved into a vertically integrated company that produces, delivers, installs, and monitors commercial and residential systems for clients around the globe.
"DevOps is an area where it’s hard to find people that have the skills. To build a team of highly trained specialists, capable of bringing those four or five nines of reliability and quality and service…that’s a special team you have to put together. So it’s great to partner with Rackspace, who can bring that to the table and allow us to focus on developing our very specific SunPower applications and services. It’s a fantastic offering."
