Rackspace Limited Key Developments

Cloudant, Inc. Cements UK Expansion Through Collaboration with Rackspace Limited

Cloudant, Inc. announced it has worked with Rackspace Limited to offer locally-hosted solutions in the UK and to provide customers with a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solution served from Rackspace's UK data center. This local availability will help customers reduce the cost and complexity of managing a database on-site, while also helping customers in their compliance and business continuity requirements. Cloudant joined the Rackspace Cloud Tools program in December 2012, making its NoSQL DBaaS available for Web and mobile applications across The Rackspace Open Cloud(TM), with straightforward developer access and purchasing options from Rackspace's online Cloud Tools Marketplace. Customers will be able to choose between database services delivered via Cloudant's multi-tenant infrastructure or via dedicated infrastructure, allowing organizations to satisfy larger-scale performance needs or data compliance requirements that preclude the use of multi-tenant environments. Cloudant's DBaaS will be available via the Cloud Tools Marketplace and through the Cloudant EMEA sales force. The Cloudant DBaaS is a collection of database clusters that are hosted and scaled across multiple Rackspace data centers worldwide. With a CouchDB-compatible, RESTful JSON API, an incremental MapReduce engine, and built-in full-text search based on Apache Lucene, Cloudant delivers low-latency, highly-available data layer performance and pushes dynamic data distribution closer to the network edge. Developers using The Rackspace Open Cloud can easily select Cloudant as an application data layer that scales up or down on-demand as needed using a simple management interface.

Once the site is acquired, a construction plan will be completed, with the target commencement date for the first data hall to be specified in the construction plan. Thereafter, the target commencement dates for the remaining four data halls will occur, consecutively, every twelve months after the commencement date for the first data hall.
