Rackspace, HPE Join Forces on Pay-As-You-Go Private Cloud

Inside a Rackspace data center

The company's president, Antonio Neri, said: "The launch of OpenStack Private Cloud with pay-per-use infrastructure, delivered by Rackspace and HPE, marks a pivotal moment in the private cloud market and in the industry at large".

Proponents argue that billing customers only for the private cloud services they use eliminates the cost of unused fixed capacity while simultaneously handling unforeseen bursts in cloud workloads and other traffic spikes.

The new offering will be delivered as a managed service, which means it brings numerous benefits associated with public cloud to what is essentially a private cloud.

Including pay-per-use infrastructure, OpenStack Private Cloud brings the benefits of public cloud - think cloud-like utility pricing, elastic infrastructure - in a private cloud environment located in the user's data center, colocation facility or a Rackspace facility. Earlier this year, HPE acquired Cloud Cruiser, a provider of cloud consumption analytics software created to help manage private, public and hybrid cloud usage and spending. This flexible model can save customers up to 40% compared to competitive public cloud options, according to the release.

The companies quote the findings of the Worldwide Data Centre 2017 Predictions report from IDC, which forecasted that pay as you go models will account for half of physical IT and data centre spending by 2018.

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

For those companies, Rackspace believes, a pay-as-you-go option on a managed private cloud will be an attractive option.

Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC Increases Position in First Potomac Realty Trust (FPO)
Following the completion of the sale, the director now owns 917,530 shares in the company, valued at approximately $28,902,195. The real estate investment trust reported $0.41 EPS for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.16 by $0.25.

"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.

This also means there won't often be performance issues associated with shared environments, according to the vendors, while also widening their offering companies in highly regulated industries that are only able to use private cloud environments for compliance purposes. HPE is one of Microsoft's hardware partners for Azure Stack, while Rackspace's core business is providing managed cloud services for the likes of Azure and Google Cloud.

And the solution will deliver peace of mind as the OpenStack Private Cloud can be consumed with pay-per-use infrastructure as a managed service.

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 will provide the hardware, including its Gen10 servers, and hardware support, while Rackspace will manage the private clouds for enterprises, he said.

Though initially only launching on OpenStack Private Cloud, Rackspace private cloud EVP, Scott Crenshaw, noted the company's intention to extend the offering.
