Rackspace enters into a partnership with VMware today. Together, the companies want to provide their customers with the future of the multicold. The partnership is, according to their announcement, a game changer for the cloud industry.

Rackspace is expanding its Private-Cloud-as-a-Service (PCaaS0) to deliver the future of the multicold. The Rackspace Managed VMware Cloud has been made available on AWS for this purpose. This evolution of Rackspace’s private cloud portfolio includes new ways for customers to roll out workloads on both public and private clouds, using a single set of tools and processes.

Wide range

Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager of VMware’s cloud provider software unit, states that every organization is working on a multi-client approach. After all, companies can choose between managed private, hybrid and public clouds. But whatever the environment, the trend for companies to choose multiple cloud providers is undeniable.

The cloud solution is announced to provide greater flexibility for customers, who can run any VMware workload where it makes the most sense. For example, they can opt for VMware Cloud on AWS, in their own data centre or in a geospecific location. As Rackspace has thousands of VMware and AWS certifications, it would be more than appropriate to offer this.

VMware sees the partnership as a game changer in the cloud industry, as Rackspace and VMware can work together to help their customers switch to the right cloud offering. Businesses can now run each application in the best location, optimising the price, reliability, performance and security for each workload, using familiar tools, processes and APIs that businesses also use today, said Peter FitzGibbon – vice president and general manager of Rackspace managed services for VMware.
