Rackspace® Private Cloud Powered by VMware

Maintain Governance

Control your hosted private cloud via vCloud API-compatible orchestration tools and the vCloud web portal.

Managed Infrastructure

Uses a single-tenant infrastructure—from networking, servers, and storage through the VMware® cloud stack. Everything is installed, configured, managed, and monitored 24x7x365 by experienced engineers.

World-class Microsoft Hosting Expertise

We're a Microsoft Gold Partner and four-time Hosting Partner of the Year with over a decade of Microsoft hosting experience.

Deep Expertise

Our team of VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs) will help architect, deploy, and troubleshoot your environment—no matter how complex. Combine extensive VMware experience with unparalleled expertise in infrastructure hosting, and you get a complete, flexible solution that's hard to match.

Rapid Provisioning

Automate the configuration and deployment of complex workloads with VMware vApp templates that you can store in a hosted catalog. Give your internal users the ability to spin up (and tear down) their own deployments from a library of IT-approved templates, while you maintain centralized control.

Flexible Licensing

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

Migrate Apps into a Hybrid Architecture

For those traditional apps that are a good fit, leverage a hybrid architecture to optimize performance and cost by placing the database component on a bare-metal server and then connecting your dedicated environment to the Rackspace Public Cloud for bursting in times of high demand.

Single-tenant Security

Includes the enhanced security of a single-tenant environment with physically isolated network, compute, and storage layers.

Predictable Performance

Dedicated hardware resources provide consistent performance. No shared environments means no tenancy-related performance compromises.

Reliable Infrastructure

Design a hosted environment with server, storage, and networking hardware options from trusted vendors such as Dell®, EMC®, and Cisco®.

One-Hour Hardware Replacement Guarantee

We guarantee the functioning of all server hardware components and will quickly replace any failed component at no cost.

100% Network Uptime Guarantee

Our network was designed and built for solid reliability—and we back it with our robust network uptime SLA.

Additional Security Solutions

We offer managed firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), SSL certificates, threat management, DDoS attack mitigation, and more. Learn about our security solutions.

Production Applications

Move traditional client-server workloads into a securely hosted VMware private cloud. Free up your infrastructure and full-time employees for strategic initiatives by offloading the maintenance and monitoring of the VMware software stack and the underlying hardware to us.

Automate Deployment of Complex Workloads

Reduce the configuration complexity of multi-tier apps by automating deployment from a hosted catalog of vApp templates.

End-user Self Service and Policy-based Governance

Give your internal users the ability to spin up (and tear down) their own deployments by using a third-party, vCloud API-compatible orchestration tool like VMware vRealize Automation. You'll reduce demand for your staff resources, while improving centralized lifecycle control over your virtual infrastructure.
