Now that cloud technology has become ubiquitous, companies have many options for hosting servers and building out solutions. From the use of multiple cloud providers to bare metal devices to private cloud, or even to on-premises resources, Rackspace engages with customers across a diverse portfolio of providers. The customer’s structure can stem from a business need (for example, an interest in diversifying their cloud presence). Or it might be due to the early stage of their migration to a cloud environment. The customer might be waiting for their on-premises contracts to end. No matter the reason, customers commonly ask the same question: How can we consolidate our patching across multiple cloud platforms and hybrid and on-premises environments?
