Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Rackspace, a leading provider of Linux-based managed Internet hosting services, today announced the opening of its data center in London. Additionally, Rackspace named Chris Blumentritt to direct the new facility. The company also announced a relationship with AboveNet Communications to provide AboveNet's customers who may need hardware and support with Rackspace's managed hosting services."

"With approximately 45 percent of Rackspace's business derived from customers based outside the United States, the need for a data center in Europe has become pressing as the company seeks to accommodate customers in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. The new data center is located in the Docklands area of London."

"We are experiencing great demand for managed hosting services, and many of our customers outside the U.S. have requested we open a data center in Europe," said Graham Weston, chief executive officer of Rackspace. "Having a presence in London represents a significant opportunity for us."
