Create the perfect cloud for your business

Hybrid Cloud

Sometimes the best environment for a workload is one that combines both public cloud, private cloud and single-tenant dedicated environments.

That's why we've created a true hybrid cloud, with multi-cloud flexibility, so you can connect dedicated bare metal environments to the private and public clouds of your choice — such as AWS, Microsoft®, OpenStack® and VMware®


How Hybrid Cloud Helps Your Business


The public cloud’s pay-as-you-go scalability is ideal for heavy or unpredictable traffic — and can reduce IT costs.


When you need enhanced security and ultimate control for business-critical apps and data, incorporate a private cloud.


With single-tenant dedicated servers, you get ultra-fast performance, security and reliability, on bare metal machines.

Platforms We Support in a Hybrid Environment

Use RackConnect® to connect your Alibaba, AWS, Microsoft, OpenStack or VMware cloud to traditional dedicated servers, for a best-fit hybrid solution.
