Cloud Servers reside in our world-class data centers, with hardware RAID 10 storage (virtual servers only), ECC memory, and fully redundant networking and power all the way to the host.
With OnMetal™ Cloud Servers, provision dedicated, bare-metal servers configured for maximum performance from the same API and control panel as your virtual cloud servers.
Access to data centers in multiple regions lets you deploy applications close to your users and introduce geographic redundancy. (OnMetal Cloud Servers are currently available only in Northern Virginia.)
Cloud Servers use the latest generation Intel® Xeon® processors to power compute-intensive applications.
Cloud Servers is powered by OpenStack, the world's leading open-source cloud operating system. Build on an open cloud, and don't get locked into a proprietary platform.
Just want a simple GUI to spin up and manage your servers? Use our quick and easy control panel.
Use RackConnect® to connect Cloud Servers with dedicated servers and private clouds to create highly customized hybrid architectures.
Create custom images of your Cloud Servers to easily deploy future servers. Enable scheduled imaging to automatically create and maintain daily images of your servers. Use Cloud Images for maximum image mobility. Share your images with others. Move images to or from your Rackspace Private Cloud. Even move images to or from another OpenStack® provider.
Using Auto Scale, create simple rules to automatically grow and shrink your web and application tiers as needed.
Boot your virtual Cloud Servers from an image stored in Cloud Block Storage, and retain this boot volume even after you have deleted your server. You can choose the size and type (SSD or SATA) for the boot volume.
In addition to password-based authentication, create or upload SSH keys to take advantage of key-based authentication to Cloud Servers running Linux.
Use config drive to bootstrap servers by passing in user data with your boot request. This and other server metadata are available as a read-only configuration drive attached to the server.
We bill per minute from the time you create a server until you delete it. (Minimum monthly service fees apply.)

Performance Cloud Servers with data-center SSDs and OnMetal I/O with PCIe flash drives deliver a level of extreme disk performance that nearly eliminates disk contention, one of the most common bottlenecks for large databases.
Attach independently scalable, reliable Cloud Block Storage to significantly increase system or data volume capacity. The 10Gbps connection to Cloud Block Storage ensures high data throughput for your applications. Available with both SSD and standard disks.
All hosts for our virtual machines, as well as all our bare-metal servers, receive redundant, dual, bonded 10Gbps network connections to fuel high-bandwidth applications. Virtual servers also have a blazing 10Gbps connectivity to Cloud Block Storage.
Let Cloud Load Balancers distribute workloads across multiple servers to raise throughput, lower response time, and avoid overload.
Virtual Cloud Servers run a dual IP stack and receive both a public IPv4 and public IPv6 address.
Cloud Servers have access to ServiceNet, our free internal network that's optimized for high throughput to other products like Cloud Databases, Cloud Load Balancers, and Cloud Files. For server-to-server communication, we recommend Cloud Networks (virtual servers only), which provides fully isolated, single-tenant networks.
Get on-the-go access to Cloud Servers using our free mobile apps for iPhone® and Android®.
Enhance your servers' security by restricting management access to authorized sub-users with limited rights.
Virtual Cloud Servers have out-of-band console access that enables recovery even from misconfigured server networking.
Made a change and now your server won't boot? Rescue mode provides access to your original Cloud Servers file system, so you can fix configuration problems and retrieve data.
