Rackspace Guarantees 99.99% Uptime on Private Cloud

Rackspace is so confident with the new release of its private cloud software on its cloud computing open source OpenStack creation, it's guaranteeing success for enterprise workload production.

The San Antonio, Texas-based managed hosting provider debuted its private cloud in the summer of 2013, and now beefed up its offering with a 99.99 percent OpenStack API uptime guarantee, increased scalability to hundreds of nodes and DevOps automation services for application lifecycle management.

"Arguably the most exciting thing about this is we're backing it with an industry-leading OpenStack API uptime at 99.99 percent," Christian Foster, Rackspace Private Cloud director of marketing, told CMSWire. "OpenStack is four years old and is maturing with the technology. The market is looking for a provider to stand behind its product in a big way, and that's what we're doing here. If we don't meet this uptime monthly, our customers will be receiving credit from us missing that number."
