Private cloud solutions offer a number of advantages to businesses. They’re deployed on site, which provides improved control and flexibility, yet they also have the cost and scalability advantages of a public cloud.
But there is often one big drawback. The companies that use private clouds often have to develop the apps they need to use them effectively from scratch, a considerable challenge.
In an effort to ease this burden, Rackspace this week rolled out a suite of free, single-click solution templates that customers can use to quickly deploy today’s most widely used open source applications. The templates allow customers to launch a production-ready application stack on the company’s private cloud.
