Rackspace announced a huge milestone: reaching one billion server hours operating production-ready OpenStack clouds for many of the world's largest and most recognized companies.
Rackspace collaborated with NASA to develop OpenStack in 2010.
"Over the past six years, Rackspace has gained more experience building, operating and improving OpenStack clouds than any other company," said Scott Crenshaw, senior vice president of strategy and product at Rackspace. "The one billion managed server hour milestone is an exciting accomplishment and further validates that we are ahead of competition in OpenStack leadership and expertise."
Rackspace also announced early access for a managed security service for Microsoft Azure.
