Rackspace Launches Cloud Product Certification

San Antonio-based Rackspace announced today that it will start providing product certifications for its Rackspace Private Cloud partners. Rackspace said it will help offer product certification for its cloud, to offer a consistent, supportable, and tested platform. Rackspace's partners had earlier been conducting their own self-certification of their products on Rackspace's software. According to Rackspace, it will have two classes of certification, including "Technology Alliance Program" and a "Built For" Program, with different levels of certification and testing involved with each.
