Rackspace announced a new suite of cloud services, including a new tool to test the apps running on Rackspace’s cloud.
The new service, called Rackspace Testing Cloud, will allow users to run their own apps on Rackstock Cloud, a cloud-based platform that supports enterprise apps and services.
The Rackspace Services SDK, a third-party software development kit for developers, is used to test apps and SDKs, including those for Apple’s iOS and Android.
This means that anyone with an app can test the app on Rackstack Cloud.
Developers can download the Rackspace Test Cloud SDK, open an app, and then run a quick test on RackStack Cloud.
For example, a developer might open an email app on a Rackstack account and then send an email to the recipient.
The test app can then run, and if successful, the test will pass.
If the test fails, it will be closed and the test app will stop working.
If a developer wants to test a new app on another Rackspace account, they can use the Rackstack cloud platform to send an e-mail to the address they provided when creating the app.
“If you want to test an app on one of the Rackstock cloud services for your own app, you can do it with the Rack Stack Test Cloud,” said Mark Schindler, general manager of product marketing at Rackspace.
“We’ve added a tool to help you do it, too.”
This means developers can run a few tests, and when all tests pass, they’re ready to send the app to Rackstack.
The tool also provides access to the RackStack API, so they can easily add support for new apps and APIs.
“It’s easy to add support,” said Schindlers.
“Just open up an app in the app store and add a support package to your app.
We’ve added support for Android and iOS.
If you add the Android and Apple support packages to your Rackstack app, that’ll get you up and running with the cloud.
This way you’re never left behind.”
Developers can also add support to the app through the SDK, but the tool is not designed to help developers create an entire app for a Rackspace cloud service.
“This is more like a test suite,” said Brian Kastner, director of product management at Rackstack, referring to the tools.
“The tool is designed to be used by developers who need to test and run an app to make sure it’s working.”
Rackspace is already testing its own apps for the Rackcloud cloud service, including an iOS and Mac app.
There are currently three apps available for Rackstack on the Rackstore app store: The first, called The Rack Stack, is for testing Rackspace services.
This is a cloud platform that can run apps on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and Rackstock is the cloud provider for those platforms.
The second, The Rackstack App, is an iOS app that lets developers build apps for Rackstock apps.
This app is also available on Rackstore.
The third, Rackstack Desktop, is a desktop app that allows users to view apps from Rackstock.
“You can create apps that are very simple, and the apps are built for your needs, but it’s all based on Rack Stack,” said Kastnner.
“What you see is all Rackstack apps, all the Rackslash apps.
It’s just apps you can run on Rackstacks cloud.”
Kastne said Rackstack plans to launch more apps for cloud-related services in the future.
“At this point, we’re still trying to figure out what the right way to test is,” he said.
“Our next step is to do more in-depth testing, and we’re looking at different cloud-specific solutions for testing different things.”
Rackstock will also support cloud services like Azure and Google Apps.
Kastns said that as part of this process, Rackstock developers will also be able to test app support on Rackcloud.
“They’re going to be able see where they are in terms of testing on the cloud, what they’re going through when testing, how they’re able to communicate with Rackstack to get things done,” he added.
“And then they’re gonna be able go get a real-time app from Rackstack.”
