We can also connect multiple Rackspace data center regions in North America and Europe.

Disaster Recovery

Looking for a secure backup, failover or redundancy option to support your disaster recovery plan? RackConnect Global provides a reliable private connection between Rackspace and your data center or other cloud providers, enabling you to bypass the Internet while you back up and recover application data.
