Rackspace Hosting to Offer OnMetal Cloud Servers

June 25, 2014

Rackspace Hosting released OnMetal Cloud Servers -- an API- driven, single-tenant Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering.

"The rising complexity of the multi-tenant cloud affects applications in a variety of ways," said Taylor Rhodes, president of Rackspace, in a release. "Virtualization and sharing a physical machine are fantastic tools for specific workloads at certain scale; however, we've learned that the one-size-fits-all approach to multi- tenancy just doesn't work once you become successful, so we created OnMetal to simplify scaling for customers to stay fast and lean with a laser-sharp focus on building out their product."

OnMetal Cloud Servers are built with Open Compute Project hardware and powered by OpenStack.

OnMetal Cloud Servers are available for testing under limited availability and expected to enter general availability in the Rackspace Northern Virginia data center this July.
