Software development company Ntractive has selected Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX) to host its Mac CRM SaaS software, Elements CRM. The Software as a Service (SaaS) of Ntractive was first introduced to the public at a keynote address during Apple’s 2007 World Wide Developer’s Conference. With its 2.0 release it was awarded the honor of Apple “Staff Pick” in July, 2009.
The founder of Ntractive explains why the open cloud solution offered by Rackspace is a good option: “Building a custom data center requires a lot of resources and time to build and maintain. By moving to Rackspace public cloud, powered by OpenStack we are able to scale vertically and horizontally and spin up new Cloud Servers with amazing speed and agility,” says Justin Bartak, Founder & CEO of Ntractive. “Rackspace gives our business cloud application and our customers unprecedented scalability, reliability and security.”
