Rackspace and HPE launch pay as you go OpenStack private cloud

Rackspace and HPE launch pay as you go OpenStack private cloud”

Rackspace and Hewlett Packard Enterprise have partnered on a new managed private cloud service for enterprises - a pay-as-you-go OpenStack cloud customers can have in their own data centers, in colocation facilities of their choice, or in Rackspace data centers.

The new service, which HPE and Rackspace are billing as the first-ever pay-as-you-go, elastic, single tenant OpenStack private cloud, is targeted at Fortune 1000 customers anxious to get public cloud economics in a secure, managed private cloud service. "This pay-per-use infrastructure is a new step forward in helping enterprises deploy private clouds with improved flexibility and cost transparency".

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.

According to HPE, Openstack Private Cloud with pay-per-use infrastructure offers customers the benefits of a public cloud - such as utility pricing, elastic infrastructure and simplified IT - in a private cloud environment.

The idea, says Rackspace EVP of private cloud Scott Crenshaw, is to give large enterprise customers the ability to set up and consume data on an isolated private cloud the way they would a scalable public cloud. With this model, customers pay for the capacity they need at a given time, and can more easily scale and burst to fit changing business needs.

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

Rather than take weeks or months to build new capacity, customers can increase server or storage capacity within seconds like they can in the public cloud, he said. "We knew we could make private cloud the preferred platform for the majority of enterprise workloads, but only if we integrated and gave customers a true cloud experience". "We have broken through the private cloud barriers to make private cloud the optimal platform for most enterprise workloads".

The new service - which will be offered initially by HPE and Rackspace in a direct sales effort with a channel plan in the works - will be available November 28 either in a customer's own data center, a colocation facility or managed by Rackspace.

Being a single-tenant model means that HPE and Rackspace's private cloud will be able to handle many security, compliance, and privacy needs, the release said.

"We believe very much in a multi-cloud future where particularly medium and large companies are going to be using some public cloud, some private cloud, some on-premises, some off-premises", Rackspace ANZ senior director and general manager Angus Dorney told Computerworld.
