Rackspace launches OnMetal Cloud Servers

Friday 20 June 2014 | 17:03 CET | News

Rackspace Hosting has announced OnMetal Cloud Servers, an API-driven, single-tenant Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering designed for customers with rapidly growing infrastructure footprints. OnMetal Cloud Servers are built with Open Compute Project specification hardware and powered by OpenStack. 

The servers are available in three different sets of specifications, each designed and built for workloads commonly associated with large web scale applications. The Compute-optimised configuration offers 20 threads and 32GB RAM and can be used to power large-scale web servers, application servers, queue processors and load balancers. The Memory-optimised configuration offers 24 threads and 512GB RAM, and can be used to power caches, search indexes and in-memory analytics. The I/O-optimised configuration provides 40 threats and 128GB RAM as well as a 3.2TB PCIe flash drive that can be used to power large NoSQL data stores, traditional SQL databases and OLTP applications. 

OnMetal Cloud Servers are available for testing under limited availability and are expected to enter general availability in the Rackspace Northern Virginia data centre in July. The servers are forecast to be available in Rackspace's international data centres in 2015.
