Rackspace eyes government G-Cloud contracts

Rackspace® Hosting, the service leader in cloud computing, has been selected as a vendor to the government's £60m G-Cloud framework. Rackspace can now supply Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and higher level Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technologies to UK Government departments. "Rackspace is committed to helping the government radically improve its level of IT efficiency and we are naturally very pleased to be on the government's procurement list for G-Cloud services," said Taylor Rhodes, Managing Director International at Rackspace. "We believe that cloud should be truly pay-as-you-go and now the UK government can maximise its cloud computing opportunity to the full potential." Rackspace applauds government recognition of the cloud model's ability to disaggregate computing structures and engineer more flexibility into the public sector IT framework. The G-Cloud framework team has been clever and planned for hybrid hosting environments to be used while the platform in its entirety stabilises. Offering departments the option to use a mix of public cloud platforms and traditional dedicated hardware is probably the most prudent measure to further seed interest and confidence in hosted solutions for the longer term. Rackspace is in the special position of being able to offer cloud services for both data processing and secure storage from its UK cloud data centre. As the government looks to address compliance and governance issues pertaining to the cloud, Rackspace also offers maximum levels of proximity with minimised latency.
