Cloud and managed hosting provider Rackspace Technology has solidified its position as the largest global Managed Service Provider (MSP) member of Pure Storage’s Partner Program. Through the partnership, Rackspace and Pure Storage bring multicloud solutions to organizations. Rackspace can for example provide quotes and marketplace offers for Cloud Block Store on AWS.
Pure Storage is an IT pioneer delivering a high-performance, multicloud storage platform, allowing for a seamless data plane across on premises and cloud environments. It would empower organizations to run their operations in an automated, storage-as-a-service model seamlessly across multiple clouds.
“Companies increasingly strive to deliver a more cost-effective infrastructure for the workloads they intend to run on premises, while leveraging a partner to support their multicloud ambitions,” said Peter FitzGibbon, VP Strategic Alliance Partnerships, Rackspace Technology. “Through our partnership with Pure Storage and its Pure Evergreen Storage program, we are uniquely positioned to meet customers where they are, enabling them to modernize applications, build new products, adopt innovative technologies, and drive down their total cost of ownership.”
eCommerce, Databases, DR, AI, IoT
The Pure Storage Evergreen model would allow customers to add capacity and increase performance on demand non-disruptively. The partnership provides users with fast access to their storage, hybrid-cloud connectivity and low latency for workloads where performance cannot be compromised. This would help organizations get to the cloud and maximize their IT investment. It would allow them to seamlessly migrate mission critical workloads such as eCommerce, databases, disaster recovery, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT) to Rackspace’s infrastructure.
“Partnering with Rackspace Technology has empowered our joint customers to fully embrace the power of both hybrid and multicloud technologies and deliver incredible customer experiences,” said Jack Hogan, VP of Technology Strategy at Pure Storage. “In a time when a multicloud strategy is more of the rule, rather than the exception, we’re excited to combine our industry leading storage technology and Rackspace Technology’s industry leading cloud expertise to provide a differentiated solution that empowers customers on their cloud journey.”
