Access VMware experts for fully managed virtualization

Getting the most from virtualization requires significant investments in expertise. You need specialists who can architect secure, reliable and efficient infrastructure. Then you need data center operations staff, VMware experts and system administrators to monitor and maintain it all.

You can find and hire those experts yourself, or let some of the most experienced professionals in the industry do it for you. Rackspace can help you architect, deploy and troubleshoot your virtualization environment. We even proactively support the guest OS layer, including VM backups, OS monitoring and patching, and antivirus updates.

Virtualize the easy way

Create, customize, clone and provision virtual machines (VMs), and we take care of the rest. Quickly increase or decrease your capacity to match changing demands.

Reduce risk

Your hosted VMware environment is backed by both our 100% Network Uptime Guarantee and our One-Hour Hardware Replacement Guarantee.

Access our expertise

We've focused on hosting VMware since 2006 and have deployed thousands of environments of all shapes, sizes and complexities. We're one of VMware's largest vCloud Air Network partners, with elevated access to technical specialists for rapid resolution.

Managed guest OS support

We proactively support the guest OS layer, including managed VM backups, antivirus, OS monitoring and patching. We can also support different kinds of databases.

Predictable performance

Dedicated hardware resources provide consistent performance. No shared environments mean no tenancy-related performance compromises and no noisy-neighbor effect.

Visibility to important statistics

Manage your virtual environment from the MyRackspace portal. Use statistics to determine your available compute capacity (CPU, disk and memory) and any compute constraints caused by resource-intensive VMs or apps. You can also call us if you need help.

Quick recovery from unexpected failures

Safely commit changes and roll back updates to your VMs by saving snapshots before making changes. We offer a range of resiliency solutions to help protect your environments in the event of disaster or unexpected downtime.

High performance configuration options

We can handle your most performance-hungry workloads. Rackspace offers flexible virtual CPU and RAM options, the ability to break apps up into component parts and place them in a hybrid architecture, plus the option to quickly scale out into our public cloud.

"Actual uptime is higher and flexibility is also greater. It is much simpler to upscale and downscale capacity than it was before and, thanks to the price model we’ve chosen, the costs are transparent to us and to our clients."
Martin Goossens, Director of Support & Hosting, Planon Software
