Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (Application Delivery Controller) company, announced today that it will sponsor the 2010 Rackspace Partner Leadership Summit on October 5-6 at the Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio, Texas. The event is put on by Rackspace Hosting, the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry.
This year’s Rackspace Partner Summit will address the shift from traditional on-premise server management to cloud-hosted services. The two-day conference will feature talks led by Rackspace executives and field experts, and focus on how companies can successfully adapt to this changing environment, while achieving cost-savings and providing added value to end-users.
Zeus’ sponsorship of this event exemplifies the cloud business benefits of its pure software application delivery controller (softADC) solution, Zeus Traffic Manager. Zeus software enables organizations to deliver secure, available applications across any combination of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. Implementing this solution in Rackspace’s suite of cloud solutions, including Cloud Sites™, Cloud Files™ and Cloud Servers, enables Rackspace customers to improve application performance, increase application availability, and manage updates without downtime, all while being able to grow and scale complex, distributed applications.
“Companies are continually seeking ways to reduce costs, while improving the reliability, availability, scalability and security of their IT systems,” said Paul Brennan, CEO, Zeus Technology. “The cloud is an obvious solution for this, but such environments must be implemented in a manner that ensures mission-critical applications are readily available and protected, and minimizes downtime. Our partnership with Rackspace makes this possible for any company looking to make a full or partial transition the cloud.”
Through the Zeus and Rackspace partnership, the thousands of companies building on Rackspace’s technology gain access to Zeus’ advanced application delivery services, ensuring a flexible, more cost-effective cloud computing infrastructure. Because Zeus is a pure software solution, Rackspace customers can purchase it on a pay-as-you go basis, eliminating the business risk of leveraging a hardware solution in the cloud.
