The collaboration is expected to help the customers decrease the cost and complexity of managing a database on-site.
Cloudant has singed a deal with open source company Rackspace Hosting to offer locally-hosted applications in the UK and to provide customers with a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) offering through Rackspace's UK data centre.
The application claims to help customers decrease the cost and complexity of managing a database on-site, while helping them in their compliance and business continuity requirements.
In December 2012, both companies collaborated to launch Cloucdant's NoSQL DBaaS for web and mobile applications through the Rackspace Open Cloud.
Cloudant UK engineering director, Simon Metson, said that the expanding relationship with Rackspace is part of the growth strategy for Cloudant to strengthen its strategic expansion into the UK.
"We will use Rackspace open cloud infrastructure as a base delivery platform to explore further relationships throughout Europe, a region that has a growing need for big data and big mobile database capabilities," Metson added.
Rackspace cloud and partner evangelist, Jim Battenberg, said: "We look forward to deepening the relationship between Cloudant and the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace to give customers easy access to tools that can help them manage the growing ocean of data and to provide them with an open cloud experience."
The application will offer services through Cloudant's multi-tenant infrastructure and dedicated infrastructure, while Cloudant's DBaaS will be made available through the Cloud Tools Marketplace and through the Cloudant EMEA sales force.
