Rackspace and Pure Storage together launched a new solution for hybrid cloud users. It’s the Ultra-Fast Performance Rackspace Block Storage solution. The solution combines Pura Storage’s storage technology and partner programme with Rackspace’s managed services and hybrid IT expertise.

The solution is aimed at hybrid cloud users migrating mission-critical workloads to the cloud, writes ZDNet. “This is really about those companies that want to get out of storage management, but want to maintain enterprise-level capabilities, have ultra-fast performance and have high up-time,” said Jack Hogan, VP of Technology Strategy at Pure Storage.


Ultra-Fast Performance Rackspace Block Storage provides customers with fast access to their storage, hybrid-cloud connectivity and low latency for workloads such as e-commerce, databases, disaster recovery, artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things. When customers migrate these workloads to Rackspace’s infrastructure, it should help them maintain high performance and availability, with comprehensive data portability across multiple platforms.

The key benefits of the new offering include Rackspace’s assistance in migrating, securing and optimising hybrid cloud environments, as well as the enterprise-level security of Pure Storage. “Rackspace has always believed that customers on a journey of several decades are from one form factor to another, from an on-premise world to a cloud world,” said Prashanth Chandrasekar, SVP and GM at Rackspace.


Earlier this year, Rackspace also launched a major expansion of its managed services for Amazon Web Services (AWS). That was a suite of services designed to help companies adopt Amazon Aurora, Amazon Redshift, AWS Glue and Amazon Athena. The service is designed to help customers prepare, load and search datasets quickly and easily. The operational costs and time to market must also be reduced.
