Rackspace on Wednesday announced a new service model for delivering managed cloud services, helping clients build and operate their cloud infrastructure through a more flexible, scalable approach that aligns with DevOps practices.
The new "Elastic Engineering" offering gives customers access to a "pod" of Rackspace cloud engineering experts -- a group of nine architects and engineers. Customers work with the same pod, so the engineers become familiar with the customer's needs, as well as their existing resources and areas of expertise.
Rackspace is offering Elastic Engineering support for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The core service is sold as hours, so that clients can scale up as needed and the service is offered at an efficient price point. read the rest here
