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.

Astronomer Announces Secure, Private Cloud Option for Running Apache Airflow on Kubernetes

Grazed from Astronomer

In response to growing market concerns over data security and GDPR compliance, Astronomer, the open-source data engineering platform, has launched its Enterprise Edition, allowing for easy Apache Airflow deployment in a secure environment. Earlier this year, Astronomer announced the first managed Apache Airflow offering (available through its SaaS data platform). Enterprise Edition provides the same feature-rich access to Airflow, but through a customer's own Kubernetes cluster. Astronomer Enterprise Edition customers get full access to all source code for the platform, and can therefore modify and extend it to suit their needs while keeping all data inside their own virtual private cloud (VPC).

"GDPR and other data security concerns are forcing organizations to weigh the risks of sending customer data to external vendors. We are seeing an acceleration of interest in our managed access to Apache Airflow for data collection and routing, but it's matched by a demand for security and control of the data," said Ry Walker, Co-founder and CEO of Astronomer. "Enterprise Edition solves this problem and comes backed by the support and firepower of our leading Airflow engineers."

Cloudistics Shares 4 Reasons to Repatriate Public Cloud Services and Data To Private Cloud


Cloud computing has been around now for some time but questions about security still linger-especially with reports of widespread data breaches. Cloud computing makes it relatively easy to procure the services you want and trust the service provider to do the heavy lifting. The prize of less complexity and less worry with the promise of fast and flexible data and applications is very enticing. However, this "trust" in the arrangement overlooks a very important risk-that of exposing data to hackers and thieves.
