Built on a custom, dedicated architecture, ObjectRocket for MongoDB can power the most demanding database workloads by providing full utilization of resources for host machines, and a level of isolation that enterprise customers demand. With ObjectRocket for MongoDB, customers can leverage Rackspace expertise and Fanatical SupportA(R), which allows them to focus their in-house resources on building mission-critical, highly secure applications instead of managing their database environments.

Features of ObjectRocket for MongoDB now include: Enterprise Security Options -- Helps secure customers' applications with enterprise-grade security options including encryption at rest, policy based network access control, role based access control and log management.

Suite of Developer &Automated Tools -- Speeds up time-to-market and helps reduce downtime with both backend (automated deploying) and customer facing tools, making it easier to operate. Data Portability -- Leverages the universality of open source, community edition, MongoDB so customer data is portable. Application Portability -- Runs applications anywhere, including in Rackspace or AWS data centers via AWS Direct Connect with integrated Access Control List (ACL) sync. The company is committed to supporting fully managed versions of the most popular NoSQL, big data and relational databases including MongoDB, Redis, Hadoop, Apache Spark, Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Percona, and Maria DB.

Rackspace Extends its Contributor Agreement with CERN to Continue Creation of Reference Architecture and Operational Model for Federated Cloud Services

Rackspace has extended its contributor agreement with CERN to continue creation of a reference architecture and operational model for federated cloud services. Having previously developed identity authentication over multiple OpenStack clouds, the agreement extension will see Rackspace and CERN openlab extend the identity authentication concept to develop standardised templates for OpenStack cloud orchestration. It will allow customers to take a single action to spin up an environment across multiple cloud platforms. The agreement involves the creation of full multi-cloud open standard orchestration capability, dependent on shared installation images, to facilitate management of virtual machines in remote clouds. The CERN data centre presently stores more than 30 petabytes of data per year that is generated by the experiments on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The data is then made available to physicists through CERN's distributed computing infrastructure. With the agreement, Rackspace will be able to test future technology solutions in CERN's computing environment, which will help the company boost the development of future technology solutions to address real business and IT challenges. Rackspace said that it would continue funding a full time research fellow at CERN to help with the federation project and CERN would conduct service testing using Rackspace Public Cloud.
