LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - Rackspace® (NYSE: RAX), the #1 managed cloud company, today announced an extension of its contributor agreement with CERN openlab to continue working on creating a reference architecture and operational model for federated cloud services. The successful relationship has already seen Rackspace and CERN develop identity authentication over multiple OpenStack clouds, with the next iteration of the project being to extend this concept to developing standardised templates for OpenStack cloud orchestration.
