Improved Performance Without Virtualization Overhead

Custom Server Environment with Added Services

Options to Customize Your Server

Processors

High performing Intel® Xeon® processors can enable your workloads to run faster and more efficiently while lowering overall cost of ownership. Configure your server with up to four processors to deliver high performance for diverse workloads.
Choose from these processors:

  • E5-2600
  • E5-2600 v3
  • E5-4600
  • E5-4600 v3

Memory

Add up to 3TB of DDR4 RAM during initial deployment, or increase memory capacity as your business grows. With next generation DDR4 memory support, your overall memory bandwidth increases and is optimized for your workloads. RAM options range from 32GB up to 3TB.

Operating System

Let our systems administrators install, patch and support your operating system of choice — including CentOS®, Red Hat®, Ubuntu® and Windows® Server.

  • CentOS 6 (64 bit)
  • CentOS 7
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (64 bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • Windows Server 2012 Standard (64 bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard (64 bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 Datacenter (64 bit)
  • Windows Server 2016 Standard (64 bit)
  • Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (64 bit)

Local Storage

Choose from a wide array of local drive options (from 400GB SSD to 6TB SAS) to fit your needs and budget. Enterprise-class solid state drives (SSDs) offer significant performance benefits over traditional disk drives — ideal for applications requiring high random I/O operations per second (IOPS) performance with low latency.

Choose from these SSDs:
  • 480GB (6G SATA MU 3.5" SSD)
  • 960GB (6G SATA MU 3.5" SSD)
  • 1.92TB (6G SATA MU 3.5" SSD)
  • 400GB (6G SATA WI 3.5" SSD)
  • 800GB (6G SATA WI 3.5" SSD)

We also offer SAS or SA-SCSI hard drives. These drives include a 12Gbps interface with 16MB of cache and a rotation speed of 10K or 15K RPMs.

Choose from these SAS Drives:
  • 300GB (15K 3.5" SAS )
  • 600GB (15K 3.5" SAS)
  • 3TB (6G 7.2K SAS)
  • 6TB (6G 7.2K SAS)

Host Bus Adapters (HBA) or Network Interface Cards (NIC) are also available to connect to external storage solutions.

Database Software

We can install and manage a wide range of database software applications for you — from Percona® to SQL®. For additional database support, you can turn to our DBA Services.

  • MySQL® Community Edition
  • Percona Server
  • MariaDB Server
  • Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 and 2016 Web Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2016 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2016 Enterprise Edition
  • Oracle® 11g Standard
  • Oracle 11g Enterprise
  • Oracle 12c Standard
  • Oracle 12c Enterprise 

Virtualization

With Rackspace Server Virtualization, you get the agility and cost savings of a virtualization solution in a dedicated environment. Our trained engineers manage the virtualization layer and the underlying physical infrastructure for you, taking the complexity and hassle out of virtualization.

Choose from these virtualization options:

RAID Configuration

Hardware RAID controllers create redundant storage arrays to help protect against drive failures. RAID controllers include Flash-Based Write Cache (FBWC), designed to increase overall performance, especially in write-intensive application environments. In addition to 12GB/s SAS support, RAID controllers include onboard battery backup.
Choose from these RAID options:

  • RAID 1
  • RAID 1 + HS
  • RAID 5
  • RAID 5 + HS
  • RAID 10
  • RAID 10 + HS

Managed Backup

Managed Backup is included with your server. It includes differential daily backups and full weekly backups, with two-week onsite retention. If you require more frequent backups or longer retention periods, we can design a backup solution that meets your business needs. 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.
Our suite of included and optional monitoring solutions includes:

  • Infrastructure monitoring
  • Operating system monitoring
  • Network monitoring
  • URL monitoring
  • Application monitoring
