Nixu Fuels Rackspace's ObjectRocket
ObjectRocket Selects Nixu for Its Cloud Service
Nixu Software July 28, 2014 announced that ObjectRocket, the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) division of Rackspace, has selected Nixu for its Software-Defined IPAM and DHCP services. The announcement comes in the wake of Gartner’s latest DDI Market Guide highlighting Nixu as the go-to vendor for cloud and managed service providers, further strengthening the company’s market position as the leader in this rapidly evolving industry vertical.
Acquired by Rackspace in 2013, ObjectRocket operates a DBaaS cloud offering based on MongoDB, the leading open source NoSQL database. Through its innovative DBaaS business model that eliminates the need for expensive software licenses and in-house database administrator staff required to run industry-standard database solutions such as Oracle, ObjectRocket by Rackspace provides software developers with a unique POD architecture supporting seamless scaling on an on-demand basis.
“I am thrilled and feel privileged about the opportunity that Rackspace decided to give us,” said Juha Holkkola, managing director of Nixu Software. “As Rackspace moves forward with the go-to-market of its DBaaS cloud offering, I am confident that we will see this initiative scale beyond belief. This gives us a front seat in watching how this rapidly changing market evolves, allowing us to maintain our technology-leadership in our own technology domain,” he added.
