Rackspace updates RackConnect hybrid cloud solution

Adds support for enhanced security and new compatible devices.

By Ben Sullivan

Rackspace has updated its hybrid cloud offering, RackConnect, with improved security and scalability.

Rackspace offers the RackConnect hybrid cloud solution to help incorporate highly customised devices within dedicated hosting and connect with public cloud, private cloud powered by VMware, OpenStack and Microsoft.

The latest version of RackConnect, RackConnect v3, uses software-defined network technology and Rackspace Cloud Networks to deliver connections with an increased emphasis on security across the entire configuration, says Rackspace.

"RackConnect v3 redefines hybrid cloud by offering enterprise customers a migration path to the public cloud with none of the downside," said John Engates, CTO at Rackspace.

"This unique hybrid cloud technology allows our customers to take advantage of our managed public cloud, private cloud and dedicated hosting offerings with a seamless integration backed by Fanatical Support. It is a unique offering in the market today."

Rackspace claims that new features include a five-times increase in scalability, an enhanced customer experience and more device options with the Brocade ADX load balancer joining the list of compatible devices, along with the Cisco ASA firewall series and the F5 BIP-IP local traffic manager.

The new features of RackConnect will be available from October 23 to customers who have dedicated cloud resources in all US and International regions.
