Rackspace Releases Rackspace Hybrid Cloud Offering, RackConnect(R) V3

Rackspace announced the newest release of its Rackspace Hybrid Cloud offering, RackConnect(R) v3, including new security capabilities, increased scalability and an improved customer experience. Rackspace created the unique RackConnect technology to address the needs of customers who require the scalability of the cloud, combined with the enhanced security and performance of traditional dedicated hosting. RackConnect allows customers to blend traditional dedicated hardware and networks with a variety of services deployed in the public cloud. The latest iteration of RackConnect uses software-defined network technology and Rackspace Cloud Networks to deliver a seamless connection between disparate environments with an emphasis on security across the entire configuration. Rackspace offers this hybrid cloud solution with the ability to incorporate highly customized devices within dedicated hosting and connect with public cloud, private cloud powered by VMware, OpenStack and Microsoft, and even offsite to a customer premise all backed by Fanatical Support. There is no additional charge for RackConnect beyond the cost of the underlying resources consumed. With the new version of RackConnect, customers will be able to take advantage of enhanced security capabilities, increased scalability and automation, and more device options. Enhanced Security - RackConnect v3 expands the security of dedicated environments into the Rackspace Public Cloud by integrating isolated Rackspace Cloud Networks to keep traffic segregated. Increased Scalability and Automation - RackConnect v3 supports as much as a 5x increase in scalability. It also decreases the time to provision new resources and helps reduce the risk of build failures by introducing seamless Rackspace Cloud Server provisioning. Enhanced Customer Experience - Using best practices and software-defined networking (SDN), RackConnect v3 shifts complexity away from the customer and toward software and automation, delivering a seamless customer experience. More Device Options - RackConnect remains free of charge to all Rackspace customers that have a compatible network device. The Brocade ADX load balancer joins the list of RackConnect compatible devices, along with the Cisco ASA firewall series and the F5 BIP-IP local traffic manager, to further reduce the cost of an entry-level RackConnect deployment.

MobileForceField Chooses Rackspace to Host All of its Websites

MobileForceField has chosen Rackspace to host all of its websites. MobileForceField's patent pending app steps in before a child receives bullying messages, inappropriate images or visits unsuitable apps and websites. It also uses geofencing technology to monitor the location of the child and help ensure they are kept away from uninviting locations. Rackspace is supporting both the main MobileForceField website which is used for marketing purposes and the portal where parents log in to review activity on their child's device. The scalable infrastructure was in place so that the spike in traffic to these sites could be easily handled when the solution was launched in the UK on 2 October. The app is available now on Android devices and Rackspace will provide hosting support for the tool being launched on the Apple App Store.
