Simple, easy-to-consume VMware virtualization managed by Rackspace

Getting the most from virtualization requires significant investments in expertise.

You need people who can architect secure single-tenant, reliable, and efficient infrastructure—from storage, host machines, and networking up through the virtualization and guest operating system layers. And then you need data center operations staff, VMware experts, and system administrators to monitor and maintain it all.

Find and hire all those experts yourself... or let our virtualization pros do the hard work for you. We'll help you architect, deploy, and troubleshoot your hosted environment. The infrastructure and VMware software stack are managed by some of the most experienced professionals in the industry. We even proactively support the guest OS layer, including VM backups, OS monitoring (including responding to alerts) and patching, and antivirus definition updates.

Best fit for you app

Best fit for you app

For certain traditional applications, you can break the app up into its component parts and place them into a hybrid architecture. A performance-hungry database might run on a bare-metal server, connected to an app component running on VMware hypervisors. Meanwhile, the front-end web server can quickly scale out in our Public Cloud to support any unexpected spikes in demand.
