Streamline Your Operations

Transform Your Manufacturing Business by Harnessing the Power of the Cloud

Whether you are manufacturing parts, distributing products or providing services, you need to make it easy for others to work with you. Your success depends on it.

As a result, you are probably looking to the cloud for help. But the cloud can be as complex to navigate as it is powerful. It might not be clear whether your solution needs to include managed infrastructure, managed services, managed applications or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

We’ll be your guide. Leverage our deep expertise managing enterprise clouds and applications across private and public cloud platforms to create a solution that provides what you need to transform your manufacturing business — with the flexibility to change as your business grows.

We'll Help You Leverage the Cloud to Transform Your Business

Control Costs

You need to store and manage increasing amounts of production-related data. The cloud’s pay-as-you-go model, where you pay only for what you use, lets you store data more affordably.

But leveraging the cloud involves more than just moving data storage off-site. With on-demand cloud resources, you can scale up or down to meet demand. Using the cloud to scale efficiently helps you prevent wasteful over-provisioning and lower your costs.

Rackspace has experience managing all of the leading public cloud platforms — Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure®, Google Cloud Platform and OpenStack®— so you can choose the best cloud for the job. Discover how SunPower’s new hosted environment allows them to transition to the cloud as a gradual pace.

Deliver Performance

Your manufacturing business can’t afford problems related to poor performance, unplanned downtime or data loss. Your customers — and employees — expect services to be available at all times, with little to no latency.

With our private cloud solutions, you benefit from the greater control and performance of a single-tenant environment along with the agility and efficiency of the public cloud. Your compute, storage and networking components are dedicated to your business needs, providing enhanced security and customization.

And you can connect your dedicated environment to the public cloud of your choice to create a true hybrid cloud with multi-cloud flexibility.

Rely on experts for help designing an environment that’s resilient and built to keep data safe.

Collaborate Globally

The pressure to reduce production lifecycles and time-to-market — and to constantly innovate — is part of how you do business. Cloud-based technologies help distributed organizations communicate and collaborate with their employees, as well as with suppliers and distributors.

If your company operates globally — or plans to — you’ll also want to ensure your infrastructure will support global operations and offer secure network connections between providers.
