Free your resources from day-to-day IT maintenance

Every day, you’re asked to balance speed and agility with security and control. Neglecting either side can result in service gaps that cause groups within your organization to go outside of IT for solutions. This can expose your organization to unacceptable risk.

But you can simplify that balancing act. With Dedicated VMware vCenter, you can seamlessly extend your VMware environment into our hosted single-tenant infrastructure. Using the same tools, processes and staff you use today, you get the benefits of the cloud while extending your IT resources with Rackspace VMware experts.

100% Network Uptime Guarantee

Our network was designed and built for solid reliability — and we back it with our robust network uptime SLA. We also guarantee the functioning of all server hardware components and will quickly replace any failed component at no cost.

Single-tenant performance and security

No shared environments means there are no tenancy-related performance compromises. Dedicated VMware vCenter includes the enhanced security of a single-tenant environment with physically isolated network, compute and storage layers.

Deep expertise

VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs) help architect, deploy and troubleshoot your environment, no matter how complex. Gartner® has recognized Rackspace as a leader in their Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting.

Use existing scripts and tools

Keep your current processes, and leverage your staff's existing knowledge. You maintain direct, on-demand access to VMware native technology. We expose the vSphere® API, so you can use your existing scripts and familiar tools.

Build for optimal cost and performance

Rackspace has the flexibility to offer the architecture that best meets your needs, combining bare-metal servers and dedicated environments that can burst into the Rackspace public cloud.

Deliver rapid provisioning

Use the VMware vSphere Web Client to instantly provision VMs or programmatically provision them using the vSphere API.

Choose the best licensing approach

Use your own licenses, or get licenses from us. We offer guest OS licenses (such as Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®) and select application licenses (such as Microsoft® SQL Server®). Licensing for VMware® vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) is included.

We have greater control, on demand, and Rackspace has made us effectively on an equal powering with a lot of other dedicated solutions in the market. Rackspace gives us the ability to react quickly with automated build capabilities, but also to automate our testing and quality assurance.
