Supporting education services

Graduate to fully managed, high-performance IT.

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 Technology 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.

Purdue University’s upgraded cloud platform allows students and faculty to quickly spin up new server clusters, work across different operating systems and access the latest technology on a semester-by-semester basis.


Use cases

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.
