Rackspace’s OnMetal service eliminates "noisy-neighbor" problems

Last year, Dell and HP lost a key customer — Rackspace. Up until then, the two companies supplied Rackspace with upwards of 90,000 servers. Rackspace, like Facebook, now designs its own servers using guidelines from the Open Compute Project. Quanta Computer builds the custom servers for Rackspace. This past week, Taylor Rhodes, President of Rackspace, announced in this video what was in store for these servers — a new Rackspace offering called OnMetal. Put simply, Rackspace, besides providing customers multi-tenant virtual machine (VM) servers, will now rent single-tenant dedicated servers.
