Following the opening of the Rackspace Sydney datacentre in February, the company has added full access to hybrid cloud offering for local businesses, using OpenStack technology, the company announced.
According to a press release, the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud combines elements of public cloud, private cloud and/or dedicated servers.
“We believe that a hybrid cloud option changes the way Australian businesses will make their cloud buying decisions,” says Angus Dorney, director of Rackspace for Australia and New Zealand. “As cloud adoption increases, businesses are becoming more aware of proprietary technologies that lock them in to specific architectures and vendors.”
The Sydney datacentre opened earlier this year to meet increased demand from Australian companies for managed virtualisation. With the launch of the public cloud in Australia, the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud is now available to customers in the datacentre.
