New offering provides enhanced level of application performance to managed and hybrid cloud customers in Asia-Pacific
Rackspace has redesigned public cloud with Performance Cloud Servers will be available in India. This new offering creates a powerful hosting platform for a variety of workloads, ranging from web hosting, eCommerce applications to larger scale NoSQL data stores like MongoDB and Cassandra. The offering will be available to customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region including Hong Kong, India, Singapore and Greater China.
Companies in Asia-Pacific are rapidly adopting hybrid cloud to increase application response and scalability, as well as expand the range of workloads running in the cloud. According to Gartner, nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by the end of 2017.
With Rackspace Performance Cloud Servers powered by OpenStackR, customers can connect the new cloud servers to dedicated bare metal servers as part of the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud, which can provide an unparalleled level of application performance.
Since 2009, Ugam Solutions, a global leader in managed analytics, has used Rackspace’s hybrid cloud and managed virtualization to host parts of their big data mining and retail analytics platform. As one of its biggest cloud customers in Asia, Ugam Solutions champions Rackspace’s cloud offerings and fanatical customer support.
“Being able to rapidly scale, and process data in near real time streams, is a critical success factor that helps us deliver the right insights, at the right time, at the right price point, to our customers. Rackspace’s hybrid cloud offering helps us with just that. With Rackspace hybrid cloud, our infrastructure footprint has evolved into an elastic ecosystem that can scale on-demand and is easy to manage, thereby maximizing the overall productivity of our business,” said Vishal Katial, VP and Head of IT Infrastructure at Ugam. “Rackspace has been a valuable partner in the growth of our business, evolving newer solutions like ObjectRocket to tackle challenges that faced in the big data space. We currently use the Performance cloud in the US and we have seen significant savings of up to 50% YoY, while continuing to scale our data footprint with complex analytical models to boot. Now with the launch of Rackspace’s performance cloud in Hong Kong, we have more options to choose from as we look to further optimize the performance of our product portfolio, and enhance our business footprint globally.”
