    Sony turn to Rackspace and NASA for cloud tech

    PlayStation Brings on Rackspace Talent to Help With “OpenStack Private Cloud Deployment”



    August 9, 2013 Written by Sebastian Moss


    The ‘power of the cloud’ has been quoted numerous times by both Microsoft and Sony as we get closer to the launch of the Xbox One and PS4. Much of the debate has focused on Microsoft’s assertion that the cloud will make the Xbox One noticeably more powerful, but many have disputed it, while Sony has said that it is possible, but limited. Meanwhile, other important cloud features include Microsoft’s cheap dedicated servers for developers – which we want on PS4 – cloud saves, and, of course, Sony’s Gaikai cloud game streaming.
    So, as you can see, ‘the cloud’ will be very important next gen, which is why today’s news that PSLS has uncovered is so interesting.
    Rackspace – the open cloud company that recently announced plans to partner with CERN on cloud computing – will be helping Sony out with their PlayStation cloud plans.
    Lanham Napier, CEO of Rackspace, said in an earnings call (transcribed by SeekingAlpha) that Sony is now an “enterprise customer” for the company, continuing:
    Sony PlayStation recently signed a services agreement with Rackspace, under which our developers and architects will be consulting and supporting the PlayStation team with their OpenStack private cloud deployment.
    Elsewhere he said:
    We are the Founder and a key leader of the OpenStack cloud ecosystem, and we are the leader in providing OpenStack-based private clouds.
    OpenStack is a cloud computing project to “provide an infrastructure as a service”, jointly created by Rackspace and NASA, with it’s website saying:
    OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich.
    The scale of Sony’s cloud plans have yet to be seen, but are you excited that Sony is bringing on one of the cloud industry’s best companies to help? Let us know in the comments below.

    The surest sign that you are on the right side of a debate is when you find yourself against those who are stuck in the past because they have no future.

    "Cheap dedicated servers for developers". That will be good. Not buying into any other cloud claims though. But those servers will be nice for the MMOs and whatnot.

    Chille, read your comment here and tell me if it doesn't seem like you're reading a poem of some sort.

    So screw the regular cloud, we all get space clouds.

    MS has the power of the cloud, Sony opted for the power of the nebula.

    So they've got Gaikai for game streaming, and they're doing this Openstack cloud computing, scalable server structure. If they have enough servers to do it smoothly, then they're already caught up in possible cloud computing benefits (background AI, lighting, etc). This is interesting news, I'd like to hear more about this deal soon, maybe Gamescom.

    So Sony is buying into the power of the cloud as well? Good to see because that technology is the future with Xbox One.
