Cloud hosting provider Rackspace has announced that its redesigned, OpenStack powered public cloud with Performance Cloud Servers will now be available in Hong Kong. The offering will be available to customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region including Hong Kong, Singapore, India and Greater China.
Rackspace’s hosting platform would be a good fit for a variety of workloads, ranging from web hosting, e-commerce applications to larger scale NoSQL data stores like MongoDB and Cassandra.
The Rackspace Performance Cloud Servers are designed with 100 percent data center-grade, RAID 10-protected solid-state disks (SSDs), powerful Intel Xeon E5 processors, up to 120 Gigabytes of RAM, and 40 Gigabits per second of highly available network throughput to the host.
Rackspace customers are able to connect the new cloud servers to dedicated bare metal servers as part of the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud, which could provide an unparalleled level of application performance.
