Rackspace Introduces Kubernetes Container Enablement Service

Global cloud hosting provider Rackspace (NASDAQ: RXT), a company delivering end-to-end multicloud solutions, has announced the availability of Rackspace Container Enablement. The new service offering, which was created to address the most common challenges for organizations using Kubernetes containerization platforms, provides flexible, on-demand multi-cloud expertise.

The Rackspace Container Enablement service includes IaC management, CI/CD, DevOps transformation, and more, in a highly adjustable collaboration model, without a long-term commitment.

Developing and sustaining a cloud-native platform can be difficult, while it sometimes necessitates big, dedicated teams, stated Rackspace. Additional problems may arise as a result of application transformation, such as operational adjustments to code management, QA and testing process flows, and application operational release management that support business development

A good containerization approach may speed up innovation, increase developer productivity, and offer scalability, availability, and portability for applications, stated Rackspace.
