Rackspace to Leverage CloudCheckr’s Governance Platform for AWS

Cloud hosting company Rackspace will license CloudCheckr’s governance platform to further accelerate its managed service, ‘Fanatical Support’ for AWS. The license agreement would enables Rackspace to enhance its ability to provide customers with a comprehensive and scalable cloud management solution that satisfies cost, security, utilization and compliance concerns. 

CloudCheckr empowers IT, Security, and Finance teams by uniting cost management, security intelligence, compliance, and cloud automation into a unified cloud management platform for AWS. CloudCheckr would increase operational efficiency and reduce risk while helping save money.
