Why Use Our FedRAMP Private Cloud Solution?

Faster Migration

Migrate applications in weeks, rather than months. Our FedRAMP private cloud solution integrates industry-leading virtualization, networking, compute, storage, security, and management technologies — and is pre-configured, reducing the time required for you to receive your authority to operate.

Our private cloud’s modular design makes security the top priority, while providing the cost-savings, flexibility and customization that government agencies, software providers, and systems integrators need to meet their own unique performance and security requirements.

FedRAMP Private Cloud

Fully Managed Security

The fully managed private cloud transcends traditional Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with its comprehensive compute and virtualization functions, architecture and device support. We have the capability to manage and secure the FedRAMP private cloud all the way through the virtual operating system, delivering a hardened operating system along with network components built to DISA Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) standards. Because of the management all physical, network, and host security requirements and controls, your organization can more readily meet FedRAMP, FISMA and agency-specific security requirements.

Plus, gain some peace of mind knowing that your infrastructure is backed with 24x7x365 monitoring and support. We can even create a physical “air-gapped” solution to separate your infrastructure from other entities within our FedRAMP enclave. This option includes dedicated hardware and cage space, along with our full suite of managed security tools for monitoring.

Rackspace Managed Security

Increased Efficiency

Our unique offering leverages standardized processes and best-of-breed tools to generate alerts and reports, to help you meet requirements and gain operational efficiencies.

Because our private cloud is FedRAMP JAB authorized — and includes NIST 800-53 controls up through the FISMA high level it can accelerate the audit review process and help you move towards Authorization to Operate (ATO) certification more quickly.

Combine this with our consumption-based pricing model, and you can put resources previously allocated to achieving certifications to better use.
