PR Contact Natalie Silva Rackspace Rackspace Corporate Communications firstname.lastname@example.org In October 2006, Mosso Inc. was created to experiment with hosting services for white labeling.  Finally, the division has become the basis of Rackspace`s cloud computing offering. Rackspace Technology is a leading end-to-end technology services company. We can design, create and operate our customers` cloud environments across all major technology platforms, regardless of the technology stack or deployment model. We work with our customers every step of their journey through the cloud, allowing them to modernize applications, develop new products and embrace innovative technologies. “Cloud computing provides our chain partners with a great opportunity to increase their added value by simplifying the customer`s IT infrastructure and providing affordable IT services,” said Justin Crotty, Vice President of Services, Ingram Micro North America. “The demand for IaaS solutions is growing and we are pleased to be working with Rackspace to bring to market a broader portfolio of hosted solutions that enable our chain partners to make cloud computing for their customers and generate new revenue streams in their IT services businesses.” In April 2012, Rackspace announced the implementation of OpenStack Compute as the underlying technology for its Cloud Servers product. This amendment introduced a new control panel and add-on cloud services with databases, server monitoring, bulk memory and virtual networks.  In 2015, two Rackspace executives were elected to the Board of Directors of the OpenStack Foundation.  In an interview in February 2016, CTO John Engates explained that Rackspace uses OpenStack to power its public and private cloud.
