Rackspace Invented Openstack. Now We're Perfecting It.

Rackspace OpenStack — from Cloud Pioneer to Industry Innovator

Since creating OpenStack® with NASA in 2010, we’ve continued to innovate by pioneering the OpenStack private cloud-as-a-service delivery model and providing the industry’s first 99.99% API uptime guarantee. We manage the world’s largest OpenStack public cloud and have logged more than 1 billion server hours operating OpenStack clouds for many of the world’s largest companies. We enable you to manage containerized, virtualized and bare metal applications across public, private and hybrid clouds — using the same standard set of open APIs.

OpenStack, Made Simple

Proven Operational Expertise

Nobody knows OpenStack better than Rackspace. We founded OpenStack with NASA in 2010, operate the world’s largest OpenStack cloud and have experience scaling OpenStack clouds to thousands of nodes.

Industry-Leading Reliability

We back our OpenStack solutions with industry-leading SLAs including a 99.99% API uptime guarantee for private clouds and a 100% network availability guarantee for clouds in a Rackspace data center.

OpenStack Everywhere

We deliver fully-managed OpenStack private clouds in any data center in the world, enabling you to get close to your customers to maximize response times while meeting security, compliance and data sovereignty requirements.

"OpenStack provides a path to innovation for our students. However, the complexity of the technology platform requires significant expertise to run at scale. Consuming OpenStack as a managed service from Rackspace and relying on them for their operational experience has been key to our success."
