This is a great example of the OpenStack community at work. As the community grows, we're seeing both generalists and specialists pop up in the professional services field. Now, the team at hastexo has built some very specific expertise in OpenStack high availability. Being able to leverage that expertise is extremely valuable to Rackspace.
We've built an excellent product using OpenStack. hastexo helped us make it even better. We look forward to working with them in the future.
Troy Toman, Senior Director, Cloud Compute Engineering at Rackspace
We reached out to hastexo for guidance about high availability for our new OpenStack based products, the Rackspace Open Cloud. They've been great partners throughout the process. Working to strict requirements and tight timelines, Martin and Florian delivered solutions that we could easily and rapidly plug into our existing infrastructure. They worked with us after the solutions were built, to make some additional adjustments and improvements to fit our customized environment.
We now have a resilient and stable H/A environment that allows us to offer a reliable product to our customers.

For infrastructure high availability in its OpenStack based cloud, Rackspace turns to hastexo’s experts.
Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company, is a service leader in cloud computing. Founded in 1998 in San Antonio, the hosting company employs about 4,500 employees across the globe.
Rackspace is also the original steward and primary backer of OpenStack, the cloud computing platform that is among the hottest new technologies in the open source community today. The industry regards Rackspace’s leading role in the establishment of the OpenStack Foundation, and its subsequent passing of control to that foundation, as exemplary among open-source software projects.
Rackspace’s latest cloud offering, the Rackspace open cloud, is the industry’s first large-scale offering for private, public and hybrid clouds based on OpenStack. Like all other Rackspace products, Open Cloud is backed by Fanatical Support® – Rackspace’s no excuses, no exceptions, can-do way of thinking that Rackers bring to work every day.
When Rackspace looked for expert consultancy to vet and harden core infrastructure services for OpenStack, hastexo – driven by identical core service values – was an obvious choice. Drawing on years of experience in high availability clustering and a deep involvement with the OpenStack community, we were able to quickly establish and implement a best-practice model implementation of highly available OpenStack infrastructure services.
