JumpCloud Joins Rackspace Marketplace

JumpCloud™, the leading automated server management tool for DevOps and IT pros, today announced that its best-in-class service is now available through the Marketplace for Rackspace® Hosting, (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company. An ideal addition to the Marketplace, JumpCloud automates the tedious tasks of managing servers so DevOps and IT pros can focus on what makes their businesses tick: innovation.

Rackspace customers can now receive automated server management capabilities with JumpCloud. This bolsters the shared goal of supporting highly agile and flexible infrastructures and workflows. With JumpCloud, end users are able to easily and effectively automate the management of their Rackspace servers, which saves time while also securing their infrastructure. The JumpCloud platform effectively automates tasks such as SSH/privileged user management, admin activity monitoring, patch detection and selected compliance requirements.

“As one of the industry’s leading IaaS providers, Rackspace is in a unique position to complement our offering,” said Rajat Bhargava, President and CEO of JumpCloud. “Server management is critical, and every time someone spins up a dedicated server or cloud server based on OpenStack at Rackspace, we can now be a natural extension; we will be there to help automate the labor intensive, yet essential tasks associated with managing servers - in the cloud or otherwise.”

“As organizations have increasingly scaled their server infrastructures, many have found it challenging to realize the full potential of both enhanced organizational speed and agility,” said John Engates, Rackspace CTO. “Rackspace solves this problem for organizations by offering a unique hybrid cloud platform, which combines public and private cloud form factors with dedicated, bare metal servers. The addition of JumpCloud to the Marketplace will help customers effectively leverage the full potential of the infrastructure they host with Rackspace.”

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
