HPE and Rackspace partner on OpenStack Private Cloud

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Rackspace have partnered to offer an OpenStack Private Cloud managed service.

The companies said their Private cloud will offer benefits of a public cloud - cloud-like utility pricing, elastic infrastructure and simplified IT – in the enterprises' own data center, a colocation facility or a datacenter managed by Rackspace.
                                           
“The launch of OpenStack Private Cloud with pay per use infrastructure delivered by Rackspace and HPE marks a pivotal moment in the private cloud market and in the industry at large,” said Antonio Neri, president of HPE. “This experience is the best of the cloud and on-premises worlds, and we fully expect this simple pay-per-use technology model to change the way enterprises make technology decisions.”

Rackspace is rolling out a VMware private cloud offering

Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware built on VMware Cloud Foundation will enable full software defined data center (SDDC) capabilities including compute, storage and networking that span the public and private cloud.

"Provisioning hardware quickly is no longer considered a value for customers, it's expected," said Peter FitzGibbon, vice president and general manager of VMware at Rackspace. "The enhancement in our VMware private cloud delivery model through VMware Cloud Foundation will provide further value to new and existing Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware customers by giving them access to the most streamlined and innovative VMware SDDC capabilities and lifecycle management. We are excited to use VMware Cloud Foundation and look forward to continued innovation on the platform."

Benefits include:

  • Standardized Architecture: Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware is built on VMware Validated Designs, which are based on best practices, making deployments more predictable and lower risk.
  • Continuous Updates and Lifecycle Management: Continuous updates allow for the most up-to-date VMware capabilities through lifecycle management of VMware components, thereby helping to improve users' security posture.
  • Leverage Existing VMware Investments: Users leverage the control, flexibility and choice needed to run VMware as easily as they would in their own data center.IT departments can migrate or extend to the VMware cloud with consistent tooling and skills. Consistent infrastructure architecture can be leveraged across multiple locations without the need to refactor code. Mutual customers maintain value of existing investments made in training, VMware technology and familiar tools by accelerating adoption of software-defined infrastructure.
  • Offload Physical and Virtual Infrastructure Operations: Rackspace delivers a hosted model, which eliminates many of the procurement and integration challenges that IT organizations face in their own data centers. Mutual customers also benefit from the ability to scale their solution quickly and as needed without the need for significant upfront capex investments in data centers and hardware.

Rackspace Offers Hosted OpenStack Private Clouds

Rackspace is now its fully-managed OpenStack services in any data center -- including private enterprise data center, a third party data centers of the customer's choosing, a Rackspace-supported third party colocation facility or a Rackspace data center.

Rackspace will fully manage the underlying OpenStack software and hardware, including all compute, network and storage. The company promises "Fanatical Support."

The company said this new approach enables customers to run OpenStack private clouds without the high cost, risk and operational burden of doing it themselves. And companies can free up money and resources by moving their IT infrastructure from a capital expense to an operating expense model.

“Companies realize they can free up money and resources for more strategic business investments when they turn their IT capital expenses into operating expenses,” said Darrin Hanson, GM and VP of OpenStack Private Cloud at Rackspace. “When OpenStack is consumed as a managed service, businesses can remove non-core operations, reduce software licensing, and minimize infrastructure acquisition and IT operations costs.”

Rackspace Launches Carina Container Cluster Service

Rackspace introduced a native container cluster service called Carina.

Carina focuses on portability and ease-of-use for deploying a cluster of containerized applications. It leverages bare-metal performance, Docker Engine, native container tooling and Docker Swarm for orchestration.

Rackspace said one of the advantages of Carina is that it uses the native Docker API and tooling.  Containers sit on top of the server, which helps eliminate hypervisor overhead, allowing faster application performance. The idea is to get customers to a “zero infrastructure” container environment, where Rackspace manages the infrastructure and Docker environment for customers.

“At Rackspace, our mission is to give customers industry-leading service and expertise on the world’s leading technologies. Carina extends this mission as part of our strategy to support OpenStack’s position as a leading choice for enterprise clouds,” said Scott Crenshaw, SVP, strategy and product at Rackspace. “Carina design makes containers fast, simple and accessible to developers using native container interfaces, while leveraging the infrastructure capabilities of OpenStack.”

“The Carina beta from Rackspace makes it fast and simple to start a Docker Swarm cluster. They have put the Docker experience front and center without any abstraction,” said Nick Stinemates, VP business development of Docker, Inc.  “You can get started in under a minute and pull images into a cluster straight from Docker Hub, or leverage existing Docker tools and plugins that natively “just work.” This is exciting as it builds on and partners with our existing community and ecosystem. The focus on container developer experience is paramount and they’re showing a commitment to it.”

Intel's ‘Cloud for All’ Initiative Targets New Investments

Intel is rolling out a new "Cloud for All" initiative to accelerate cloud adoption by making public, private and hybrid cloud solutions easier to deploy. The plan calls for a series of investments and collaborations in the cloud software ecosystem, which the company expects will lead to tens of thousands of new cloud deployments.

“The cloud has been critical to the digital services economy and has enabled tremendous innovation and business growth, but broad enterprise adoption is not happening fast enough,” said Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Data Center Group. “We believe that through this initiative we will enable our customers to realize the benefits and innovations gained from the latest cloud computing technologies.”

The Intel Cloud for All initiative will focus on three primary areas:

  • Investing in the ecosystem to accelerate enterprise-ready, easy-to-deploy software defined infrastructure (SDI) solutions;
  • Optimizing SDI solutions to deliver highly efficient clouds across a range of workloads by taking full advantage of Intel platform capabilities; 
  • Aligning the industry and engaging the community through open industry standards, solutions and routes to market to accelerate cloud deployment.

As a key part of this initiative, Intel announced a new collaboration with Rackspace to establish an OpenStack Innovation Center to drive enterprise features and scale optimizations into the OpenStack source code. The OpenStack Innovation Center will include the world’s largest OpenStack developer cloud consisting of two 1,000-node clusters that will be available to the OpenStack community-at-large to support advanced, large-scale testing of OpenStack performance, code and new features. These testing clusters are expected to be available within the next six months.

The companies will also focus on the delivery of new enterprise features and optimizations that are aligned with the OpenStack Enterprise Working Group and community priorities. New modules of courseware will also be offered to onboard and increase the number of open source developers actively contributing to the success of the community.

Rackspace Names New CEO, Drops Company Sale Evaluation

Rackspace formally ended its evaluation process under which it was looking for a potential acquirer of the company. In doing so, the company declared its commitment to remain an independent provider of managed cloud services.

Rackspace also announced the appointment of Taylor Rhodes as CEO to lead and drive its managed cloud strategy. Rhodes is a Rackspace veteran who has served in a variety of leadership positions within the company since 2007, including several roles directly responsible for delivering Rackspace’s renowned Fanatical Support® to customers globally. He retains his previous role as president.

Rackspace co-founder, Graham Weston, who has served as CEO and chairman since February, now is non-executive chairman of the board.

“We ran a thorough process under the direction of our board of directors, independent advisors, and a Strategic Transaction Committee of the Board,” said Graham Weston, Rackspace co-founder and chairman. “In this process we talked to a diverse group of interested parties and entertained different proposals. None of these proposals were deemed to have as much value as the expected value of our standalone plan. We concluded that the company is best positioned to drive value for shareholders, customers and Rackers through the continued execution of its strategic plan to capitalize on the growing market opportunity for managed cloud services.”

Rackspace Launches Bare-Metal Cloud Servers

Rackspace Hosting announced offering bare-metal cloud servers that can be provisioned dynamically "as quickly as a VM."

The Rackspace OnMetal Cloud Servers are API-driven, single-tenant Infrastructure-as-a-Service servers designed for customers with rapidly growing infrastructure footprints who seek the agility and elasticity of cloud along with the simplicity and performance of colocation. Testing is underway and general availability of the service is expected in July via the Rackspace data center in Northern Virginia.

OnMetal Cloud Servers are built with Open Compute Project spec’d hardware and powered by OpenStack. The servers come in three different sets of specifications, each custom designed and built for workloads commonly associated with large web scale applications:

Compute-optimized configuration – 20 threads and 32GB RAM; can be used to power large-scale web servers, application servers, queue processors and load balancers.
Memory-optimized configuration – 24 threads and 512GB RAM; can be used to power caches, search indexes and in-memory analytics.
I/O-optimized configuration – 40 threads, 128GB RAM, 3.2TB PCIe flash drive that can be used to power large NoSQL data stores, traditional SQL databases and OLTP applications.

“The rising complexity of the multi-tenant cloud affects applications in a variety of ways,” said Taylor Rhodes, president of Rackspace. “Virtualization and sharing a physical machine are fantastic tools for specific workloads at certain scale; however, we’ve learned that the one-size-fits-all approach to multi-tenancy just doesn’t work once you become successful, so we created OnMetal to simplify scaling for customers to stay fast and lean with a laser-sharp focus on building out their product.”

“We’ve all been trained to think of the cloud as generic virtual machines on demand. VMs have had their decade. The future ‘Cloud’ will be built with containers deployed across bare-metal servers provisioned via API,” said Zack Rosen, CEO of Pantheon, a Rackspace customer in the early access program of OnMetal Cloud Servers. ”We believe Rackspace’s OnMetal service is the future of Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It’s simply more efficient — you get the performance and cost-efficiency of single-tenant servers and agility with containers that blows away what you can do with VMs.”

Rackspace Launches Dedicated VMware vCenter Server

Rackspace is launching a Dedicated VMware vCenter Server service that helps enterprise customers to extend their VMware capacity off-premise. The service provides a Rackspace-hosted VMware environment that looks and feels just like an extension of the client's own data center.
