Unify Multicloud Environments with RackConnect Global

MultiCloud connectivity unifying your entire hybrid footprint

Looking for a way to securely connect multiple data centers? Want to include multiple public cloud providers, such as AWS, Microsoft® Azure®, Salesforce®, Alibaba Cloud or Google Cloud Platform™ (GCP)? Whether you need to move workloads off premises, connect multiple sites or provide resiliency to your public cloud deployments, RackConnect® Global is a reliable and secure way to connect multiple geographically disparate IT platforms.

RackConnect Global is an “ecosystem of ecosystems.” We’ve linked the leading interconnection exchanges and cloud providers to our proprietary backbone. Once you’ve connected with the Rackspace backbone via a Rackspace data center or edge location (backbone switches in third-party colocation sites), you can spin up virtual connections across the Rackspace footprint as well as Megaport and the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric. Effectively, we provide multiple paths for connecting with all your cloud providers — wherever they are around the globe.

Why Choose Rackspace?

Multi-Cloud Flexibility

Spin up essentially infinite virtual connections over one physical connection, as needed.

Expand Your Reach

Broaden your edge by harnessing the power of Megaport and the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric — the two leading software-defined multicloud interconnection ecosystems — simultaneously.

Unify Your IT

Establish a cohesive private environment over the proprietary Rackspace backbone that links all your IT applications.

Predictable Costs

A fixed monthly cost for service — rather than estimates based on varying bandwidth use — makes your budget planning easier.

*Rackspace guarantees that the termination end point for the RackConnect Global Service virtual circuit will be able to accept connections 99.9% of the time in any calendar month, provided that there are two or more virtual circuit termination end points at the Rackspace data center location.

RackConnect Global locations

Customers may connect to the Rackspace backbone and thereby access RackConnect Global by purchasing colocation, managed services or private cloud from a Rackspace data center or interconnecting with a Rackspace Edge Location router.
