RackN Inc, a software company focused on accelerating the transition to running containers and other next-generation technologies at massive scale on any platform and Ubiquity Hosting, a global managed cloud and hosting provider jointly announce a successful, fully automated deployment of Docker v1.9 with Swarm 1.0 on 200 physical servers by RackN Enterprise.

Unlike most runbook-based provisioning and deployment software platforms that are vendor-specific, lacking formal support or do not adapt to the ever-present snowflaked software, infrastructure configurations and operational models, RackN abstracts away the tediousness and guesswork of building complete systems by trial and error and accelerates from start to scale. By auto-discovering and inventorying 1000s of objects and microservices and treating them as functional units, RackN provides a “InstallShield”-like experience by intelligently orchestrating dependencies to create a functional system based on the desired platform. As the corporate sponsor of the open source Digital Rebar project and provider of support and services for RackN Enterprise, RackN provides the ability to deploy Docker, CEPH, Kubernetes and Mesos on Amazon EC2, virtual and bare metal platforms.

"As a global provider of managed, hosted, dedicated and cloud services for multiple markets and applications, it is critical for Ubiquity Hosting to provide our customers with platform choice at a competitive price point with high value.”, says Clint Chapman, CEO of Ubiquity Hosting. “In providing these choices to our customers, it is of great importance to bring new services to market quickly, but as an operator ensure that our delivery model and technology choices are not disrupted. With RackN, we can bring containerized platforms to market rapidly by ensuring that our Docker service platform implementation is consistent across multiple platforms and locations. As we look to layer additional technologies such as new hardware platforms, software-defined networking, Kubernetes, PaaS and other services into our suite of offerings, we look forward to working with RackN in bringing these technologies quickly to market ”.

“We are very excited to have Ubiquity as a customer and a partner of RackN”, says Rob Hirschfeld, CEO of RackN. “Deploying and running Docker containers at production scale on clouds, virtualization or bare metal is challenging enough. In practice it is even more painful because operators need to incorporate several new technologies, integrate with existing DevOps tools and scale. RackN focuses on solving that problem with open software for enterprises, service providers and solutions vendors. We want to make the introduction of new technologies such as Docker a fast and repeatable experience as users move to production scale.”

To support the adoption and usage of Docker 1.9 with RackN Enterprise, RackN is offering “RackN Quick-Start” which consists of 5 days of services including an operational assessment, Rack Enterprise installation and training services for up to 20 nodes. Pricing for the service is $10,000USD.

Ubiquity Hosting is inviting companies to deploy applications on it’s bare metal, hosted offering running Docker-based as a tech-preview. Ubiquity Hosting will announce general availability, complete with SLAs in early 2016.
