Fully Managed IT to Support the Evolution of Education Services

Higher education institutions are under increasing pressure to deliver distance learning, while at the same time meeting security and compliance requirements. Yet, they’re often locked into the high capital expenditures that come with aging data centers, long-term contracts and legacy applications.

Join the universities and online institutions that rely on Rackspace as a trusted advisor for their digital transformation. Our experts can help you deliver on-demand courses and critical resources, so you can focus on educating students and inspiring them to be passionate lifelong learners.

Rackspace helped us during the development phase of the labs. We needed a lot of iterations to redesign, tweak our labs, change it. So I think Rackspace provided us with flexibility in terms of reconfiguring, redesigning, and it made the development quite smooth.

We'll Help Modernize Your IT to Evolve Your Education Services

Reduce Costs Through Digital Transformation

Traditional data centers and legacy applications often hold educational organizations back from implementing technology-enabled innovation. They’re also struggling with legacy cultures and contracts and limited access to IT talent.

To combat these challenges, they’re turning to the managed cloud. In a managed cloud, organizations can take advantage of automated risk management, security and compliance — so they can build modern online educational services.

Consolidation & Optimization

When your students rely on your online services, uptime, speed and reliability are essential. To address this need, institutions are looking to consolidate data centers, reduce the number of vendors and speed up time-to-value for their online learning services.
