全米 No.2 である Rackspace の Cloud Partner とは?

Posted in OpenStack, Rackspace by Agile Cat on July 29, 2010

日本では無名でも、Rackspace は Amazon に続く No.2 なのです


久々に Rackspace の Web を覗いてみたら、すごく分かりやすくなっていたので、その Partner Program というのを、ご紹介したいと思います。 日本の商用メディアからは無視されているような状況ですが、Rachspace は、Amazon AWS を追いかける一大勢力なんですよ。 ーーー A.C.



Rackspace Cloud Partner Program

Rackspace Cloud のパートナーになれば、Fanatical Support により保証される、私たちの比類のないサービスに対する評価が、あなたのクライアントにまでおよび、最大限のエクスペリエンスが保証されます。

この Rackspace Cloud Partner は、あなたの評判および、クライアント、コネクション、そしてビジネスを成長させるための能力を、提供するためにデザインされています。


以下のように、まるで Amazon Shop のような Affiliates プログラムがあって、あなたの Web サイトにバナーを貼らしてくださいという呼びかけが行われています。 ここまで、クラウドが日常的な手段になっているのかと、感心してしまいます。

また、Resellers プログラムは、Rackspace のリソースをまとめ買いして、小売したらいかがでしょう? 、、、というプログラムのようです。 先日の 『 VMware は知っている – クラウドでは仮想化が不要になることを 』 をポストした後、IaaS の上に PaaS を構築していく、ハードウェア資産を持たない PaaS プロバイダーが出てくるかもしれないと仰っていましたが、まさに、それを予感させるプログラムです。

Opening The Rackspace Cloud
Lew Moorman on July 19, 2010
Imagine a world where code used by the biggest clouds is freely available to any developer, anywhere.  A world where that code was a standard used to build private clouds as well as a variety of new service offers.  In this world, workloads could be moved around these clouds easily – you could fire your cloud provider for bad service or lack of features, but not have to rewrite the software to do it.  Imagine an open source cloud operating system that lifts IT to the next level of innovation, just as Linux drove the web to new heights. Today, we at Rackspace launched an ambitious …


CapCal Brings Capacity Testing to the Rackspace Cloud
Angela Bartels on July 15, 2010
This post was written and contributed by Randy Hayes, CEO and Co-Founder of Capacity Calibration, a Rackspace Cloud Tools Partner. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the on-demand capacity it provides for either expected or unexpected surges in traffic.  There’s a Catch-22 here, which is that nobody knows when they will need extra capacity or how they will handle it without testing, and fortunately the cloud itself provides the solution – the ability to handle extra capacity and the ability to generate it go hand in hand. Capacity Calibration, or CapCal, was designed for the cloud of the Internet itself, and for several …


YeSQL: An Overview of the Various Query Semantics in the Post Only-SQL World
Angela Bartels on July 14, 2010
This post was written and contributed by Nati Shalom, CTO & Co-Founder of Gigaspaces, a Rackspace Cloud Tools Partner. The NoSQL movement faults the SQL query language as the source of many of the scalability issues that we face today with traditional database approach. I think that the main reason so many people have come to see SQL as the source of all evil is the fact that, traditionally, the query language was burned into the database implementation. So by saying NoSQL you basically say “No” to the traditional non-scalable RDBMS implementations. This view has brought on a flood of alternative query languages, each aiming …
