FREMONT, CA: Rackspace has been recognized with Red Hat certification to manage On-Premises Red Hat OpenStack Clouds. This announcement will open new doors for Rackspace to upmarket its private cloud practices on Redhat’s OpenStack cloud platforms reports Scott M. Fulton III of CMS WiRE. This latest step will transform Rackspace cloud infrastructure into a cutting edge managed services provider.

This development will invigorate Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform (RHEL OSP), to a certified option that enables customer organizations to automate the testing and deployment of in-house applications using a variety of languages. The distinction of RHEL OSP comes from the services that Red hat provides. In the recent move, the entire software deployment program was reinforced by Red Hat, around Docker containers and Google’s Kubernetes orchestration system in order to make their services more efficient.

With this certification Rackspace’s customers will have a choice between a shared, multi-tenant, massive scale, not-in-their-data-center, public cloud using the OpenStack APIs and a private cloud domain to offer customers with more control. Continuous integration will be implemented by the organizations between their applications.

The joint venture will also provide beneficiary personalized attention to Rackspace’s clients. Survey conducted on enterprise IT professionals clearly indicated that more people are to be educated about the platform they provide. And Rackspace has been pro-actively offering full personal attention to the customers to manage their deployments remotely. In this latest progress made by Rackspace, a set of cloud computing products and service organizations will leverage the frameworks and stacks of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) application and make a move to the containers. The organization is also thinking about deploying applications as microservices by leveraging composite applications in the near future.
