Rackspace and HPE launch PAYG private cloud

Rackspace and HPE launch PAYG private cloud

"With Rackspace's private cloud expertise and service-first culture, they are well positioned to address the needs of HPE's large installed base of infrastructure customers and help reduce any cloud migration risk." said IDC Research vice president Michelle Bailey.

Rackspace Australia and New Zealand managing director Angus Dorney said the pay-as-you-use model follows the vendor's private cloud-as-a-service offering, which it also offered in partnership with HPE. "This pay-per-use infrastructure is a new step forward in helping enterprises deploy private clouds with improved flexibility and cost transparency".

While Gartner had few quibbles with Rackspace's private cloud offerings, it noted that the OpenStack pioneer's 2016 sale to a private equity investor makes "it more hard for customers to assess vendor-related risks".

It comes after the chief operating officer of the OpenStack Foundation, Mark Collier, said earlier this month that whilst both public and private cloud deployments are expanding, the reality is that OpenStack is now the de facto standard for private clouds. In its latest "Magic Quadrant" assessment of cloud infrastructure services vendors, Gartner (NYSE: IT) noted that Rackspace's cloud infrastructure was "technology-neutral" with platforms based on Microsoft Stack, VMware and, now, HPE infrastructure. It allows organisations to closely align resources to growth and gives these firms instant scale, as it will deal with traffic spikes and capacity bursts, without the need to pay for additional (and permanent) capacity.

"We fully expect this simple pay-per-use technology model to change the way enterprises make technology decisions".

Market analysts note that Rackspace has gradually moved away from its OpenStack public cloud infrastructure offering to focus on private cloud infrastructure and managed cloud services.

Meanwhile Rackspace said it intends to extend this PAYG model to its entire managed private cloud portfolio.

Being a single-tenant model means that HPE and Rackspace's private cloud will be able to handle many security, compliance, and privacy needs, the release said.

"We believe very much in a multi-cloud future where particularly medium and large companies are going to be using some public cloud, some private cloud, some on-premises, some off-premises", Rackspace ANZ senior director and general manager Angus Dorney told Computerworld.

HPE will provide the hardware, including its Gen10 servers, and hardware support, while Rackspace will manage the private clouds for enterprises, he said. The providers also guarantee 99.99 API uptime.

For customers outside the current parameters, Rackspace adds that the service is set to expand to include VMware and Azure-powered versions of Rackspace Private Cloud next year.

HPE and Rackspace said their OpenStack private cloud with pay- per-use infrastructure would be generally available in all regions on November 28.
