Rackspace’s Managed Cloud Strategy’s Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

San Antonio, July 17, 2014 – Rackspace (NYSE: RAX), the #1 Managed Cloud company, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North Americai and the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, Europe.”ii

The Gartner assessment, performed by the firm's IT industry experts, evaluates providers based on the completeness of their vision and their ability to execute. It categorises providers in quadrants labeled Niche Players, Challengers, Visionaries, and Leaders. Rackspace was among the 17 providers assessed by Gartner, and one of two in the Leaders quadrant in North America. In Europe, the firm analysed 17 providers and Rackspace is one of seven in the Leaders quadrant.

“We believe Gartner’s first-ever Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting signals the emergence of the Managed Cloud market and the rising demand for a trusted partner to help companies manage their cloud operations,” said Taylor Rhodes, president of Rackspace. “We feel that the recognition of Rackspace as a leader speaks of the value that businesses of all sizes find in our Managed Cloud services portfolio, our technical expertise and Fanatical Support®.  A fundamental part of our mission is to help companies stay fast and lean, rather than swelling their payrolls with engineers to manage IT that doesn’t differentiate their business.”

The majority of all computing is still conducted in house or via colocation, and with infrastructure-rental costs falling dramatically, a new wave of cloud adoption is building. These new adopters, including many large enterprises, want all the power of the cloud without the pain of having to become an expert in dozens of fast-changing cloud technologies. Through its specialised expertise in those technologies, Rackspace serves as a trusted partner and enables businesses to focus their scarce developer talent in ways that set them apart in the marketplace, such as building new products and services.

Rackspace has been a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the Managed Hosting, North American market for three consecutive years and two consecutive years in the European market, and has rapidly expanded its managed services expertise into the public cloud market. We believe the company’s Managed Cloud services, along with its unique combination of Hybrid Cloud, open technologies and Fanatical Support, help Rackspace differentiate itself from vendors who only provide access to multi-tenant cloud infrastructure. Rackspace gives customers a level of support and expertise found nowhere else.

Rackspace’s Managed Cloud offering includes specialised expertise not only in cloud infrastructure but also in the many complex applications and tools that run on top of this, including DevOps automation tools, MongoDB, Hadoop, Redis, MySQL, Magento, Oracle ATG, Adobe Experience Manager, Sitecore, Drupal, Wordpress, SharePoint and others. With a strong and growing customer base, Rackspace serves more than 200,000 business customers around the world, including 60 percent of the Fortune 100 companies.
