Rackspace Announces VMware-based Private Cloud as a Service with "Pay-As-You-Go" Service

Grazed from Rackspace

Rackspace announced that it has partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to launch the industry's first Private Cloud-as-a-Service (PCaaS) powered by VMware, with pay per use infrastructure.  This solution is an expansion of Rackspace's industry-leading managed private cloud portfolio, designed to create the optimal platform for enterprise applications.  The new offering will provide customers with utility-based services, where the cloud resources are located and managed from wherever they are needed: in the customer's data center, a colocation facility, or in a data center managed by Rackspace.

According to IDC, 80 percent of IT infrastructure will be bought on a pay-as-you-go basis by 2020.  The need for more economic pricing models and flexible capacity planning is growing rapidly. IT managers are more frequently faced with challenges such as managing unpredictable growth and bursts in workloads. In addition, they must deal with increased pressure from their development team to deploy services faster, all while budgets continue to shrink and they are forced to do more with less. By leveraging a "pay-as-you-go" model for private cloud, customers pay for what they use, allowing them to better handle erratic growth and bursts in workloads without paying for unnecessary fixed capacity or upfront equipment cost.
