Simply put, the managed cloud is a layer of support and services for your cloud computing infrastructure. You get the same Fanatical Support we’re famous for, plus access to our trained cloud team who help you plan, deploy, and run your cloud.
We have more Red Hat®-certified engineers than any other hosting company, and we’re Microsoft’s 2012 Hosting Partner of the Year. We’ve offered cloud services since 2006, and we co-founded OpenStack with NASA in 2010.
Your site or app has specific compute, database, networking, and storage needs. We offer a broad range of open cloud products you can draw from to customize your solution—and access to the expertise to help you manage it.
Our staff can help you optimize your Linux or Windows web, application, and database servers. We can also help configure FTP, SMTP, software firewall rules, and even website caching. All while providing Fanatical Support®.
Your time is valuable. And lately, you’ve been spending way too much of it managing your IT infrastructure. What if you had more time to spend on the stuff you like to do? The stuff you're really good at?
Why not hire our team of technology enthusiasts to do some of the IT work for you? We love architecting solutions, deploying servers, troubleshooting problems. It makes our day.
Aren’t there other things you could be spending your time on? Code that awesome new feature for your killer app, or find and fix bugs faster.
They’ve learned that when they trust us with their cloud infrastructure, they can focus on what really matters: their business. See what you can do with the time you save.
"With managed cloud, Rackspace is helping with our Linux and Windows support. They'll make our changes as we need them, and respond to any issue, 24 hours a day. Within minutes, an engineer will log on to fix the problem."
Chief Technology Officer, Live Smart Solutions
"Managed cloud was an extremely cost-effective solution for us. Dedicated servers would have been 20 times the cost of using the Cloud. And we got an even better result than we would have on dedicated, because it was scalable. We could have added another 30 servers if we needed them."
CEO at Sound-n-Vision, Prepara's digital agency
"The experience has been A+, alleviating a lot of pressure we previously felt before switching to a managed, monitored solution."
"I love that you're combining the managed service level that I've had on the Dedicated side for all these years with the Cloud systems that allow us to scale and adapt rapidly. To me, that's the greatest solution."
Chief Technologist, IRONMAN
"Managed Cloud really allows us to focus specifically on our app, and not all the IT stuff around it. Not that we can't do it, but I have code to write."
Lead Developer, Seer Interactive
