Rackspace Hosting Unveils Cloud BuildersNeed service and support for your OpenStack cloud? Rackspace Cloud Builders is here to help! Cloud Builders, a new business unit within the Rackspace Hosting universe, provides training, deployment services, and ongoing support post-deployment for enterprises using the new OpenStack cloud. With the addition of dedicated support for OpenStack deployments, strategists at Rackspace Cloud Builders hope that more enterprises will consider OpenStack's open-source format over pricier alternatives.
CANARIE's (Canada Advanced Research and Innovation Network) Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research ( DAIR) is already being successfully supported by Rackspace Cloud Builders. Completely OpenStack-based, DAIR is a new R&D and environment catering to the needs of small and medium sized ICT companies. These smaller R&D groups can use the DAIR environment to build large-scale products without investing in an expensive R&D infrastructure. So far, deployment and maintenance of the DAIR environment has gone off without a hitch, forecasting a bright future for Rackspace Cloud Builders.
