RAX Eyes Strategic Alternatives

Rackspace Hosting, Inc. (NYSE:RAX) is in the process of exploring strategic alternatives.

Shaadi.com Hosts over 30 Million Users with Rackspace

Rackspace announced that Shaadi.com is using Rackspace dedicated hosting. Beginning with one Rackspace server in 1998, Shaadi.com has grown exponentially since its initial deployment. Sixteen years ago, Shaadi.com saw an opportunity to build the world's large online matrimonial site and create an online experience that would match and heighten the traditional dating experience in India. To meet this challenge, Shaadi.com turned to Rackspace for its high-performance dedicated servers, which provide the processing speed required to help meet daily business needs. With Shaadi.com running millions of daily, complex personalized searches serving millions of users on the site, it needed industry-leading, expertise and superb performance to manage this heavy compute burden, which takes up vast amounts of power.

ObjectRocket by Rackspace Adds High Performance Redis Data Store

Rackspace announced the addition of Redis to ObjectRocket,(TM) its managed data service. ObjectRocket for Redis simplifies application development by providing instant-on, high performance, highly available Redis instances. Key features of ObjectRocket for Redis include: Every instance comes automatically configured with a secondary node and free backups. Should a primary node fail, the system seamlessly fails over to the secondary node; ObjectRocket for Redis is backed by Redis specialists 24x7x365 who proactively monitor and fix infrastructure issues, assist with data migrations and fine-tune Redis configurations. These specialists can also provide architecture advice and data best practices; One click provisioning, standardized configurations and advanced administration capabilities make it easy for developers to focus on building their product while leaving the tasks of maintaining, scaling and supporting Redis to the experts; Optimized specifically for Redis, ObjectRocket for Redis uses a containerized approach that eliminates the noisy neighbor issues associated with traditional virtualization. Like all of the company's offerings, ObjectRocket for Redis was built from the ground up for performance, from the network to the OS to Redis itself. ObjectRocket for Redis was designed holistically to provide the best possible performance; By directly peering with multiple networks, it doesn't matter where customers host their application -- ObjectRocket for Redis is only a few milliseconds away. So customers can host their applications where they want and leave the database work to ObjectRocket. ObjectRocket for Redis is available in the Rackspace U.S.-East data center, with availability in all U.S. datacenters and London by September 2014. Customers can provision highly available Redis cluster nodes from 500MB to 50GB+ via the ObjectRocket control panels and API.
