World-class Microsoft hosting expertise

Why should you host your Microsoft application with Rackspace? We could tell you about:

  • Being a five-time Microsoft hosting partner of the year.
  • Our having over a decade of experience hosting Microsoft servers.
  • Our community involvement that includes seven Microsoft MVPs and over 20 books written.
  • Rackspace Fanatical Support®, which gives you complete peace of mind that a human support professional will answer your call 24x7x365.

All of those things are great, but lots of hosters can offer at least some of them. So if everyone has similar résumés when it comes to Microsoft proof points, then why Rackspace?

Because Gartner has named Rackspace a leader for both Managed Hosting and Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting.* Simply put, you will be hard pressed to find a better home to host your Microsoft applications. You are going to get the same version of Windows Server and Exchange no matter where you host. Doesn’t it make sense to choose the hoster that has the best infrastructure to run that software?
