Managed Cloud in the UK = Brilliant!

Filed in Product & Development by Charlotte Colbert | May 26, 2011 9:40 am

Today Rackspace is extending to the UK the new cloud category we defined here in the states last December – Managed Cloud[1].  Cloud Servers with a managed service level marries our industry-leading 24×7 managed service on dedicated hosting with our highly scalable on-demand Cloud Servers. The end result is a premier offering allowing your business to spend less time worrying about infrastructure and instead more time focusing on the core business.

Here at Rackspace we have designed and built our company behind one underlying mission: to be regarded as one of the world’s great service companies. On the dedicated hosting side of Rackspace, we have provided managed service levels since the inception of Rackspace. We revolutionized this concept on dedicated hosting and today we are bringing it to our UK cloud.

We constantly hear business owners and executives say, “I really want to use the cloud, but I don’t want to administer the servers” or “I just don’t have the resources to manage the cloud infrastructure I would need.” Now, those businesses can get the help that they want and need.

You can think of Managed Cloud as the equivalent of having an entire Sys Admin team managing and monitoring your infrastructure 24x7x365, at a fraction of the cost of hiring your own staff to do the job. In addition this dedicated team will provide support all the way up the stack, including OS Support and Application Level Support and technical advice. Tired of getting paged in the middle of the night? Let us handle those hassles.
