The Architecture Behind Rackspace Private Cloud Powered by Red Hat OpenStack


When Rackspace and Red Hat came together to create a managed private cloud, we knew this offering needed to support enterprises looking to transform themselves using the latest technological innovations. Rackspace Private Cloud Powered by Red Hat, RPC-R for short, was architected to meet stringent enterprise requirements such as availability, stability and manageability, while helping these enterprises enter the cloud computing age.

The process for creating RPC-R began with taking the industry’s best OpenStack distribution, Red Hat OpenStack platform, and designing a reference architecture Rackspace could deploy and operate on behalf of our joint customers. Think of it as building the best racing car in the sport, then surrounding it with the best pit crew and equipment.
