Univa Integrates UniCloud with Rackspace

April 19, 2010 by  

Web Hosting ToolboxLISLE, Ill. – Univa UD, a leading provider of cloud management software, today announced the extension of UniCloud into The Rackspace Cloud, making it possible for companies to access and manage Rackspace’s cloud and hosting services as an extension to their internal computing infrastructure.

The solution enables The Rackspace Cloud customers to easily and readily provision and scale computing capacity on their proven computing environment. Embedded policy automation greatly simplifies the task of expanding baseline computing resources through the dynamic provisioning of capacity to meet peak demand.

“Rackspace is the destination, and UniCloud is the vehicle to get you there,” said Gary Tyreman, senior vice president of products and alliances at Univa. “Supporting the Rackspace Cloud provides end-users with choice. The solution is ideal for technical computing organizations that need to extend their internal capacity to satisfy peak demand.”

“Rackspace is excited that Univa UD has now integrated our cloud with UniCloud,” said Mark Collier, VP of Business Development at Rackspace Hosting. “By choosing to build on top of our cloud offering, Univa UD’s new integration allows us to deliver a better experience and enhanced service offering to our customers.”

With UniCloud, organizations can create cloud clusters as needed to fulfill their computing needs. UniCloud also supports hybrid computing environments by extending on-premise infrastructure to a private cloud by adding additional capacity simultaneously running at Rackspace or Amazon EC2. UniCloud allows organizations to establish workload policies and requirements which dynamically trigger the setup of virtual compute nodes.

Features of the UniCloud-Rackspace solution include:
* Pay-per-use model built on top of Rackspace’s simple web service interface
* Low-cost, unified monthly billing
* Enhanced security and technical support from the experts and thought leaders in cloud computing management

UniCloud is available immediately as a Rackspace extension via the Rackspace Cloud Tools site or contact Univa at for details.
