Home Cloud Services Rackspace mobile cloud stacks make life easier for developers

Rackspace mobile cloud stacks are designed to ease the design, building, testing and deployment of mobile apps.

The idea is to offer preconfigured sets of components to ease the development of apps and to simplify the backend.

The first mobile cloud stack to be offered is for PHP backend deployment, and adds Varnishd (HTTP accelerator), Memcache, PHP memcache extensions and Alternative PHP Cache (APC) to LAMP.

Partnerships with other companies - FeedHenry, New Relic, Sencha, SOASTA, StackMob and Trigger.io are already participating - will provide access to software developer kits, push services, mobile backend-as-a-service, and testing and monitoring capabilities.

Sencha vice president of marketing Paul Kopacki said “More than two million developers code with Sencha today because our frameworks, tools and services let them easily build powerful HTML5 applications that perform well on every device.

"We're excited to be working with Rackspace; their open cloud stacks make hosting these applications a frictionless process for developers.”

Rackspace CTO John Engates said "Our pre-configured mobile stacks were developed based on our experience with hosting thousands of complex applications.

"These stacks are reducing complexity for mobile developers who no longer have to reinvent the wheel every time they build and deploy mobile apps."
