We take care of the operations
Focus on what really matters: running your business, not your infrastructure. Let Rackspace take on the burden of provisioning, managing, maintaining and supporting your private cloud infrastructure, including escalation support for the OpenStack software layer.
Built to work with the rest of the Rackspace open cloud
Rackspace offers multiple hosting options, including dedicated servers and public, private, and hybrid clouds. You can run your application using the infrastructure model that makes the most sense for your specific needs, or combine different hosting options for a custom solution.
Your data center, our expertise
Rackspace launched OpenStack with NASA so we know it better than anyone. That expertise is now available no matter where you run your cloud. If you have an application that you want to run in your own data center or colocation facility, we can provide escalation support for the OpenStack layer, so you can maintain complete control, but still benefit from the deep OpenStack expertise available at Rackspace.
New life for old hardware
If you have undepreciated hardware in your data center, give it new life by installing an OpenStack private cloud for a proof of concept test or a production workload. Download OpenStack for free
