What is a private cloud?

A private cloud is a scalable cloud environment—providing the agility and efficiency of a public cloud—built on infrastructure dedicated exclusively for your organization. It can be hosted in your own data center, in a partner data center, or at Rackspace.

Private clouds are ideal when you need to accelerate innovation, have large compute and storage requirements, or have very strict control, security, and compliance needs.

We offer a complete open-source package, Rackspace Private Cloud Software, that you're welcome to use at no cost. And to help make your private cloud deployment successful, we're here to help: we offer a training and certification program, managed services, and support options to help you as you build your private cloud.
