Link: How Companies are Saving Millions with Pivotal Cloud Foundry

“A recent Forrester study commissioned by Pivotal which analyzed the benefits PCF customers see when adopting the platform found that developers gain 50 percent more coding hours a week. How? The automation and self-service features of Pivotal Cloud Foundry decrease manual and mundane deployment tasks. Wait times for environment setup and code to be prompted to production are also significantly reduced… That 50 percent gain in coding hours led to more releases per year, speeding up release schedules from once every two months to once a week — and sometimes even daily. Forrester estimates this increase in productivity equates to more than $31 million over three years, while the reduction in DevOps time allocated to provisioning, patching and scaling across multiple clouds at almost $6 million.”

Also, Rackspace has a managed Pivotal Cloud Foundry service.

New cloud category: “Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting”

To some extent Gartner has recognized that managed cloud is in its infancy and has named Rackspace in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), a report that focuses on multi-tenant cloud infrastructure providers. At Rackspace, we’re looking forward to seeing the upcoming Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting, North America, which will focus more on the service layer on top of the infrastructure, rather than the infrastructure itself. That’s where our managed cloud focus squarely fits.
