How It Works

High Performance

RackConnect Global combines the performance and reliability of dedicated infrastructure with a private network to help you achieve reliable, low-latency connection speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

Optimum Security

Information on your dedicated infrastructure in our data center is protected by firewalls and encrypted VPN tunnels. RackConnect Global goes on step further to help protect your data by using a private network — that bypasses the Internet — to securely connect to your other service providers.

Backup and Recovery

RackConnect Global enables you to backup application data from your own data centers or other cloud providers using a reliable private connection to Rackspace — providing the benefits of Rackspace dedicated hosting while supporting cloud connectivity.

Distributed Hybrid Apps

RackConnect Global enables you to distribute application infrastructure across multiple environments, while hosting the backend storage infrastructure with Rackspace. This provides redundancy, increases deployment flexibility and can help you reduce costs — ideal for web-based applications that consume a significant infrastructure footprint.
