Introducing scalable, secure S3 unstructured data storage with all-in pricing

SAN ANTONIO, TX May 22, 2023 - Rackspace Technology® (NASDAQ: RXT)— a leading end-to-end, multicloud technology solutions company, today announced the release of Rackspace Object Storage built on Dell ECS Storage Systems.

Global data quantity doubles every two years, making data storage, analysis, management, and security more challenging than ever. At the same time, the increasing adoption of artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet-of-Things, analytics, rich media, archiving, and data backup has increased cloud storage requirements from terabytes to petabytes per customer.

Rackspace Object Storage provides scalable, secure S3 unstructured data storage from our globally distributed data centers. Rackspace continues to lead the industry with transparent, all-in pricing that eliminates fees for retrieving or moving data (egress), archive retrieval, and S3 API call transactions.

“Today, over 90% of enterprises are undergoing digital transformation and evolving to embrace data-centric decision-making and business models. Adopting this new approach increases their flexibility in delivering rich cloud solutions,” said Rackspace Technology Chief Product Officer Josh Prewitt. “We have focused on making unstructured data secure, affordable, and globally accessible to help customers extract the most business value from their information.”

Significant Costs Savings and Eliminating Data Egress and Transaction Charges

Rackspace Object Storage saves substantial costs by eliminating data egress, retrieval and transaction charges. In many cases, the Rackspace Object Storage solution can save more than 80% over hyper-scale cloud storage options.

“Multicloud customers operating modern S3-enabled applications have a new paradigm that facilitates better performance and lower costs, even as data-intensive applications continue to drive up the need for storage,” said Bryan Litchford, Rackspace Technology Vice President of Private Cloud. “Organizations are seeking transparently priced, scalable unstructured data storage that is easily accessible by hyperscale clouds, end-customers and on-premises applications. Customers immediately gain greater usability and significant real-world storage savings.”
