Journey to the Cloud with Rackspace Advisory Services

Filed in Product & Development by Lizetta Staplefoote | October 13, 2011 10:04 am

Moving your current environment to the cloud is no easy feat. The process is even more complicated for enterprises due to the complexity of interrelated processes, performance requirements, security demands, and compliance factors. To help you get started, Rackspace now offers Advisory Services[1].

The Advisory Services Team offers consulting services, delivered by enterprise IT architects and business experts, to help you put innovation and agility into action. The team will work with you to map out comprehensive strategies that fulfill your multifaceted business and technical requirements. Their one-on-one approach can help you:

• Explore open source technologies to avoid vendor lock-in
• Help you build your business case for the Cloud
• Meet compliance, security, and performance requirements
• Create the optimal IT strategy for your organization

And we don’t stop there. To turn your cloud vision into reality, the team offers two consultative services:

IT Evolution Workshop
The Rackspace Advisory Service Team will engage your senior leadership in a collaborative, half-day IT Evolution Workshop that explores your holistic current environment and pursues “best-fit” solutions—including public cloud, private cloud, and RackConnect™[2], a “best of both worlds” hybrid solution.

Cloud Readiness Assessment Service
Many enterprises recognize the need to leverage a cloud computing model, but are unsure which applications within their current infrastructure are suitable for migration. Through a several-week engagement, our Advisory Services Team will assess your application stack and make a formal recommendation for cloud migration.
