The Rackspace Cloud, the cloud computing division of Rackspace Hosting, said that it has expanded its cloud tools ecosystem.
Built on the Rackspace Cloud’s open, standards-based API, FathomDB provides a database management experience that leverages cloud servers and frees users from time-consuming system administration tasks.
Fathom DB also offers a range of time-saving features, including automated backups and routine maintenance tasks, analytic tools, real-time monitoring and performance graphs for optimising code, and point-and-click configuration.
Emil Sayegh, general manager of The Rackspace Cloud, said: “Ensuring that our cloud is reliable and scalable, and delivering a fanatical support experience to our customers and partners are primary objectives for us. We support strategic partnerships because they extend the power of our cloud offerings.
“By working together with FathomDB, as well as the Cassandra open source project, we are simplifying the challenging nature of scaling databases in the cloud. It is through transparent relationships like these that we can solve many customer needs; meanwhile our competitors are trying to solve these problems alone.
