Our backup engineers will work with you to design a backup protocol to reach your recovery time objective (RTO).
Our backup options include:

  • Full backup
  • Incremental backup
  • Differential backup

Monitoring

To help ensure that your server remains online and performing at its best, your servers include Rackspace Monitoring. Powerful event processing generates thousands of pieces of data every second and executes alarm scripts as soon as there is a problem. Flexible notifications allow you to decide who should be notified.

Managed Hosting Service Levels

Since different businesses have different support needs, we offer you two hosting service levels to choose from with our Managed Hosting solutions — Managed and Intensive® with our dedicated support.

Our infrastructure is stable, it’s always there and we don’t have to worry about losing 30 percent or 40 percent of our compute capacity because of spot price fluctuations.

Rackspace Dedicated Server FAQs

What does dedicated server hosting mean?

A dedicated server is a physical server that is purchased or rented entirely for your own business needs. Dedicated servers are typically used for hosting by large businesses and organizations that require exceptionally high levels of data security, or organizations that have steady, high demands for server capacity.

What is a cloud server?

A cloud server is a virtual server located on a physical server. It offers some of the same functionality as a physical server but can be a more cost-effective option.

Learn more

Dedicated server vs. cloud server

With cloud servers, you can optimize IT performance without the huge costs associated with purchasing and managing fully dedicated infrastructure. Dedicated servers are perfect for businesses that still need the IT capacity and expertise to manage ongoing maintenance, patches and upgrades.

Learn more

What is a bare metal server?

Bare metal servers are also known as single-tenant physical servers or managed dedicated servers. On a bare metal server, the operating system is installed directly on to the server, eliminating layers and delivering better performance.

Cloud hosting vs. VPS hosting

Virtual private server hosting isolates applications and programs within one virtual server set aside solely for you. A cloud hosting environment allows you to more easily add resources to your servers, such as RAM, processors or cloned copies of your server for backup purposes.
