Build a Direct Connection Between AWS and Rackspace

Designing AWS Direct Connect for Your Unique Business Requirements

Using AWS Direct Connect, you can establish a direct, dedicated network connection between your AWS environments and Rackspace global data centers. This gives you the flexibility and scalability you need to integrate, for example, your web and application tiers running on AWS with your high-performance databases hosted at Rackspace.

Our team will work with you to design a customized AWS Direct Connect architecture that addresses your specific requirements, and we’ll maintain it around the clock. Let us take care of all the details — including deployment, configuration, management and monitoring — so you can focus on your core business.

Rackspace are constantly developing and expanding out their AWS offering, and we are therefore able to do the same.
