Today’s private cloud offers new levels of performance, flexibility and customization.

A modern private cloud offers high levels of performance and security with the versatility that’s found in public cloud.

When you migrate to the cloud, you have two main options — public or private. With private cloud, you gain the immediate benefits of public cloud — agility, speed and cost savings — while keeping your data secure in your own private environment.

Today’s private cloud is more versatile than ever. For example, it can run a software-defined data center (SDDC) on top of a single-tenant infrastructure to create a complete cloud-like experience while opening up new possibilities for your business.

Private cloud delivers a wide range of advantages for businesses that need to:

  • Move from a capex cost model to an opex model with consumption-based pricing
  • Flex transaction capacity within minutes
  • Move out of a data center, but keep applications and data nearby

Whatever your modernization goals, there’s a Rackspace Technology® private cloud solution that meets your needs. If you have special requirements, we offer custom options that range from colocation to bare metal. We also support industry-specific applications.

Each private cloud solution offers a full range of professional and managed services that are accessible to your teams at any stage of our engagement cycle: Advise. Transform. Manage. Optimize.
