The Cloud-Native “Day 2 Provider” - Rackspace

December 7, 2017 Steve Casale

Learn why Pivotal + Rackspace is a match made in heaven for large enterprises.

Rackspace has long minded others’ business, mainly because that’s what they’re hired to do in managing public and private cloud services for companies large and small. Rackspace has made a notable shift the past few years to focus on multi-cloud services, and in that found a common partner in Pivotal and its advocacy for multi-cloud choice. They put these mutual aims to more formal use through Managed Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

“We see optimization and growth opportunities… All of our customers start in one space, they see the platform in action, and they want more.”
— Brannon Lacey

Rackspace will deploy and operate a fully-managed the Pivotal Cloud Foundry solution across any infrastructure, and Brannon Lacey (Vice President and GM of Cross Platforms at Rackspace), sat down with Built to Adapt to talk about it. He covers the dovetail and opportunity between Rackspace’s services expertise, and Pivotal’s multi-cloud software expertise. Using their breadth of coverage to adapt and stay opinionated, Brannon sees even more opportunities through Pivotal Cloud Foundry 2.0, including Pivotal Container Services.
