With JumpCloud, end-users are able to easily automate the management of their Rackspace servers, which would save time while also securing their infrastructure. The JumpCloud platform automates tasks such as SSH/privileged user management, admin activity monitoring, patch detection and selected compliance requirements.

“As organizations have increasingly scaled their server infrastructures, many have found it challenging to realize the full potential of both enhanced organizational speed and agility,” said John Engates, Rackspace CTO. “Rackspace solves this problem for organizations by offering a unique hybrid cloud hosting platform, which combines public and private cloud form factors with dedicated, bare metal servers. The addition of JumpCloud to the Marketplace will help customers effectively leverage the full potential of the infrastructure they host with Rackspace.”
