The Obstacles They Faced

Needed a cloud platform to power a curriculum that provides students with cutting-edge data analytics skills and prepares them for real-world jobs at leading tech companies.

What We Achieved Together

Purdue has built two separate courses using their OpenStack private cloud, which allows students and faculty to quickly spin up new server clusters, work across different operating systems, and access the latest technology on a semester-by-semester basis.

Rackspace helped us during the development phase of the labs. We needed a lot of iterations to redesign, tweak our labs, change it. So I think Rackspace provided us with flexibility in terms of reconfiguring, redesigning, and it made the development quite smooth.
